Aside from the Cherry Pad, Cherry Mobile also unveiled their cheapest Android offerings to date â€“ the Cherry Mobile Candy and Cherry Mobile Candy Ch@t.
The Cherry Mobile Candy sports a 2.8-inch resistive touchscreen, a 1.3-megapixel camera, WiFi, Bluetooth, dual-SIM support, Android Froyo 2.2 as its OS, powered by 416MHz processor with 128MB RAM. Less than stellar specs, but thatâ€™s prolly why itâ€™s retailing for just Php3,699.
The Cherry Mobile Candy Ch@t, meanwhile, retails at the same price, and is more or less the QWERTY-equipped twin of the Candy. Its specs are almost identical to the Candy, but comes with more ROM (512MB vs 256MB on the Candy) and an understandably smaller touchscreen (2.4-inch) as a result of the added QWERTY keypad.
These new Cherry Mobile treats definitely arenâ€™t for the hardcore techies out there looking for the fastest and most powerful ‘droids in the market today. You’re better off with the Samsung Galaxy S II or some other dual-core Android smartphone out now.
But if you’re working on a strictly limited budget and want to have a taste of some Android goodness, thenÂ these two might just be the answer to your prayers.
