Cherry Pad and Cherry Pad Turbo: New Ultra Cheap Android Tablets

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

 

We know that Cherry Mobile offers cheap Android devices but nobody knew it could be this cheap.  True to its promise of giving Filipinos cheap alternatives to expensive tablets, Cherry Mobile just launched two of the cheapest Android tablets in town – the Cherry Pad and the Cherry Pad Turbo, both with 7-inch screens.

Cherry Pad is the cheaper of the two, with a price tag of only P3,899!  I still can’t believe this pricing but I guess there could be some trade offs when it comes to specs.  Although from the main specs, I cannot say that Cherry Mobile scrimped on anything.  The Cherry Pad runs an 800 MHz processor, which is faster than the 600MHz processor of the old Superion tablet.  It runs Android 2.2 Froyo but CherryMobilesays it can be upgraded.

Cherry Pad Specifications

  • 7-inch resistive screen
  • Android 2.2 Froyo (upgradable)
  • 800 MHz processor
  • 4GB internal storage (expandable up to 32GB)
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g

The more expensive one is the Cherry Pad Turbo.  With a higher price, you get higher specs as well.  The Cherry Pad Turbo is priced at P6,899 but for this, you get a 1.2 GHz processor and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Now that’s just sweet.  It has HDMI and a 2 megapixel camera.

Cherry Pad Turbo Specifications

  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread
  • RK291B Cortex A8 1.2 GHz processor
  • 7-inch capacitive touch panel
  • 512MB RAM
  • 4GB internal storage
  • up to 32GB via microSD
  • HDMI port
  • 2 megapixel rear camera, VGA front
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g
  • Bluetooth 2.1

These tablets will be released by end of November or early December.

  15. Nice Sabroso Reply

    And by the way there unit is QC passed and NTC approved too…

  16. Nice Sabroso Reply

    Cherry PAD do have a USB port for 3G modem and got wifi too. I can download and install anything at Andriod market though kunti lang ang application but it can be upgraded to Andriod V2.3. Cherry PAD is cool and cheap considering the specs and we all know that cherry mobile got already a name on the market too, though it’s not really a branded one, Cherry PAD is good but if you want something branded then it’s not for YOU. Anyway, all gadgets naman must handle with care para ‘di masira so well as Cherry PAD. Lahat naman nasisira kung di iingatan, yeah? Di naman gagawa ang isang company ng isang bagay na alam nilang name nila ang nakataya sa market, right? I got mine just last week and before I bought the Cherry PAD at cherry mobile store, I made a search to satisfy my curiosity and when I bought it I asked a lot of pros and cons about their Cherry PAD. Di naman nila sasabihin na ‘wag kau bumili nito kasi not good so it’s up to you talaga if you want to buy the tablet or not after you know it all. All I can say is just handle with care with the Cherry PAD as well as you other gadgets para di masira. Just don’t talk bad about the company or their gadgets, di naman nila sinabi na bumili kau ng phones or tablet nila, right?

  17. tanong k lng po malinaw po b yng camera cherry mobile hndi po agat masisira yan kng bibili po ako makaka internet po b ako jn s cherry mobile chaka mabilis po b internet jn s cherry mobile   reply po tnx

    • Nice Sabroso Reply

      if you want a good camera then I suggest buy the Cherry PAD turbo ( 2 megapixel rear view and VGA front view) and not the cherry PAD coz it’s just got a VGA which is not so clear but it’s OK if you only want to play games, listen music, watch videos and surfing.

  18. Merliza Copaus Reply

    Kung nag aalangan kayong bumili ng Cherry pad wag nalang kasi baka magsisi kayo hehehe… sa Apple  nalang kayo siguro dito panalo tayo… grabe subrang tibay..

  19. disposable, ala parts, nasira yung sakin, basag lcd, willing to pay naman ako for the lcd, ang problema e ala pa daw available na pamalit, e nung february pa ako nag iinquire….
     

    • Nice Sabroso Reply

      it’s good but must handle with care as well as other gadgets kasi talaga namang masisira kung papabayaan mo lang. Walang gadgets na matibay kung burara ka, right?

      • Ponziclaud Reply

        help po…pano ko maconvince yung parents ko na bumili ng cherry mobile pad turbo..ang hirap kasi nilang maconvince,haha,it takes months,by that time,bka phase out na to,,xd,…help!!

        • Nice Sabroso Reply

          it depends on how you deliver or explain your side kung bakit ka bibili ng Cherry PAD. you know parents are. It’s a challenge on your part. Good luck  ;D

          • hi nice ask ko lng if nalalagyan ng sim card ang cherry pad turbo? ynx

  20. Leorenlungsod Reply

    gusto ko bumili nyan……….pro nag aalangan ako….hehehe

    • Merliza Copaus Reply

      okie naman ang cherry pad kaso lang  talagang iingatan kung baga hindi pwding mahulog kasi parang napaka sensitive… i recommend  Apple the best talaga… 

      • Nice Sabroso Reply

        yeah I agree, handle it with care at lahat naman ng gadget dapat ingatan para di masira di ba but to those who can’t afford iPAD and Samsung galaxy tab and Blackberry Playbook then pwede na ang Cherry PAD and Torque Driod View.

    • Nice Sabroso Reply

      then make a research or go to cherry mobile and ask about their gadgets just to satisfy your curiosity para dika mag-alangan na. 😉

    • Nice Sabroso Reply

      yes but it’s VGA. I must suggest that you buy the Cherry PAD Turbo, it go a 2 megapixel camera rear view and VGA on front view.

    • Nice Sabroso Reply

      cherry PAD do have a USB port for 3G modem and got wifi too.

      it’s good for a cheap tablet and if you’re not looking for a branded one. 

  25. Merliza Copaus Reply

    i just got my Cherry Pad 2.2 yesterday and i wonder talaga bang mahina ang sound nito at saka medyo basag yung outcome ng sound? and it seems like hindi talaga flat ang screen niya mmmmkkkk i got so much question in my mind about this stuff and then  as i got it inside the box Cherry Pad at charger lang ang sa loob nito but there is other slot which is i think for the headset and cord.. i don’t know bakit ganun or talagang yan lang talaga ang dapat na laman ng box…. looking forward for the response or comment. Salamat

    • Nice Sabroso Reply

      before you bought that cherry pad, dapat nagtanong muna kau sa cherry mobile na pinagbilhan mo para pagnabili na wala ka nang doubts. alam mo na lahat diba?

    • Nice Sabroso Reply

      you can return it at papalitan nila before 7 days then test it before you leave the store para malaman mo kung may factory defect ba yung tablet. ako binalik ko tas pinapalitan ko kasi parang may problem a battery and so pinalitan nila, tinest ko muna lahat bago ako lumabas ng cherry mobile store and now it’s OK na.

  26. hey guys kung may sira ung cherry pad turbo niu magipong nlng kau para sa superion 13,999 pesos may single sim networking at android kung may questions kau sasagutin ko po 😀

    •  kagaya ng Turbo!!!!! Ang Superion at Turbo ay d same lang ang hardware nila>>>>>d compact ang pagkakagawa

    • Rodelimaaquarian Reply

      ako rin di mkadownload gamit ung app market… anong kulang?

      • Nice Sabroso Reply

        meron kayong gmail account? if wala, gawa muna kayo para maka-install na kayo ng applications. If meron tapos di pa rin kau maka install then baka may factory defects yung PAD nyo, you can return it kung dipa 7 days para mapalitan and test it before you leave the store.

  28. sirain iyan Reply

    bumili din ako nito. after 7days nasira. pinalitan after 1 day nasira ulet. pinalitan ulet. tumagal ng 1 month at nasira ulet. sira daw yung board. 2months nirepair. Sa ngaun me issue pa din. pag i on na ang bluetooth nag restart na yung system. Sila mismo nagsabi na hnd na sila nagbebenta sa branch nila kasi sirain daw. swerte yung mga nakakuha ng maayos. pero palagay nyo ilang percent lang kau na nakakuha ng maayos? goodluck. will never buy any cherry products again. Back to SAMSUNG ako.

    •  Yeah, i understand how you feel… i also bought cherry mobile product it only lasted less than 3 months. i bought another cherry product the following year thinking that baka nagkakataon lang na sira yong nabili ko but the following month nasira uli yong bago kong bili kaya cherry mobile… sinusumpa kita! Pareho lang kayo na MSI products mga sirain hindi pa ecover ng warranty dahil nabasa ko daw ng tubig nung nagreklamo ako ay nalaman ko na marami pala na pare-pareho lang ang mga sira ng mga ganung klaseng model ng netbook pero benebenta pa rin nila at sinisisi nalang sa mga buyer pag bumigay na ang unit. Sang-ayon ako sa’yo na matibay talaga ang samsung halos lahat ng gamit ko sa bahay ay samsung.

      • I think hindi naman lahat kasi cherry mobile phone ko mag 3years na so far okay parin ang phone ko and still functions well. I think din naman depende din un on how u handle your things regardless what brand it is. I am talking base on my personal experience i have 2 cherry mobile phones and still functions well…

      me too sa Cherry PAD ko, nakaka-laro at naka internet at music. nasisira lang naman yung tablet kung burara yung gumagamit di’ ba.

      • pede ba mgtanong just bought a cherry pad today.. talaga bang hindi xa soft touch oh screen protector un.. ung parang malambot

  31. am the proud owner over the past three weeks of cherrypad turbo. so far, so good. no problems. the capacitive screen is very responsive. the unit came preinstalled with all the apps you’ll need to surf, to read books, to watch movies, to listen to music and more.
    wifi is fast if your connection is fast, slow if your connection is slow.
    video and graphics are clear and crisp.
    sound is a bit disappointing, so i recommend connecting it to a bigger speaker or just use the earphones provided.
    charging takes about 3 to 4 hours.
    my only quibble is the battery which lasts anywhere from 3 to 4 hours only.
    conclusion: great value for the price.. 

    • Nice Sabroso Reply

      totally,  I agree…so far so good. it’s just the battery but other than that, OK naman. Depende na lang yun sa may-ari kung burara siya so masisira talaga. Never talk bad about the company, if you’re not satisfied with there gadgets then don’t buy, as simple as that di’ ba.

  32. simpleng tanong lang po ! sna may mag reply ” madali bang masira ang cherry pad? ” tenks ……

    • depende po sa gumagamit at kung saan bibilhin bago mo bilhin ipapakita mo muna sa nagbebenta sayo lahat ng specs kung ayos o hinde 😀

      • Nice Sabroso Reply

        I agree to that… ask first before you buy the tablet baka may factory defects and QC and NTC approved na man yung mga tablets and phones nila so depende na lang sa may-ari kung burara di masisira talaga.

  33. Trimotsa22 Reply

    ayan kac bili kayo ng bili ng mura tingnan nag cccc agad kayo kac dali nasira boti pa mag samsung nlng kayo o yung may mga panglan na mga android mas matagal pa masira at higit sa lahat mabilis ang service center nila.ako nga malaki pagcccc ko kac kala mo nakatipid kana yun pala tinitipid ka nila sa mga bumibili ng product ng cherry good luck

    •  the cherrypad turbo is a good second unit and will rival the samsung galaxy 7″ tablet. the cherrypad turbo may be cheap, but – to me, at least- has proven to be dependable. baka naman ginagamitan mo ng kamao kaya nasisira agad ang unit mo. gamitan mo lang ng dulo ng daliri, kaibigan.

      • Nice Sabroso Reply

        agree ako dyan. Depende na lang sa gumagamit yan, kung burara di masisira talaga but if you handle it with care o maayos talaga. Bakit masisira ang isang gamit kung di naman nahuhulog or nababasa? QC at NTC approved naman ang mga tablets at phones nila.

        • I dont think so..how can you say naburara ang gumgamit..if system problem nmn ang issue… cherry pad turbo… keeps on hanging.. im so dissapointed… not only with its gadget performance but also its customer support. you cant even find a single solution or troubleshooting guide… lucky for you,… your gadget turns out to be good. HOPE IT GIVES YOU A YEAR OF SERVICE…GOODLUCK

  34. naaawa ako sa mga nagkaroon ng bad experiences sa cherry pad tab. pero very much satisfied ako sa mga binili ko both cherry pad and cherry pad turbo. wala namang problema. siguro swerte swerte lang yan. everything works fine. i enjoyed it very much. sulit ang prisyo at enjoy ka sa lahat ng mga features doon not to mention the price which is very affordable.

    •  agree ko sa observation mo. pero kung minsan may mga tatanga-tanga talagang gumamit kaya nasisira agad. almost one month na yung unit ko at almost 9 hours a day ang gamit pero so far wala namang problem. nasa paggamit din siguro.

      • Nice Sabroso Reply

        ako din agree ako. NTC and QC approved naman yung unit nila eh. I’m good with my Cherry PAD kasi bago naman ako lumabas ng store nila eh cheneck ko muna yung unit.

      ako rin, nakabili rin ako dito sa cebu. 2 weeks lang bumigay yong software niya, laging mag hang up. dinala na sa service center ng store na nabilan ko, kaso pagkalipas na 3 days, sabi ng service center, dadalhin daw sa manila kasi screen daw ang sira. 1 month daw ang hihintayin. inireport ko sa store yong update, sabi palitan nalang daw nang bago, kaso lang wala namang stock. hindi paraw dumating yong mga orders nila. Hintayin nalang daw muna ang mga bagong stocks. ang pait nang sinapit.

    •  ibig mong sabihin, pagbili mo ni hindi mo nakita na tabingi ang screen at nakaangat ang lcd? ang hirap paniwalaan nyang sinasabi mo, bro.

    • Trimotsa22 Reply

      3 hours lng ang tagal ng cherry at pano makaconnect sa internet via broadband you need to configure it manually some user usually kailngan mo pumunta sa smart wireless center

  45. hi! ask ko lang what should be inside the cherrypad? mine has the tab,charger & user guide only. wala nb tlga cords?

    •  tab, charger, user guide, earphones, usb cable for connection to your pc

      •  hi chicharon! i went to SM megamall and the sales lady also said that its only tab, charger,user guide thats inside their cherrypad. i bought mine at Robinsons Pioneer. Kaloka naman! Yung plastic nila may space for other cords cguro yon pero wala naman laman.

  46. Update: got my cherrad turbo and am totally satisfied with it for the price. way better than the torque. bought a clear screen protector and a universal booklet and its good to go. here are some comments:

    1. i was able to use a usb 3g modem to access the internet via the lone usb port! 🙂
    2. avi movies played perfectly but the sound could be better.played it from a usb flash disk.
    3. camera is quirky, and crashed. i had to reboot it. same as what happened to my x8 by sony ericsson. probably a gingerbread sickness.
    4. drained the battery then charged it fully. took 1.5-2hrs for a full charge. watched a movie then browsed the internet and made this post for about 5 hrs an the battery level is still at one third full.

    • (contd)
      5. 3.5mm stereo plug wouldnt go in all the way but i still have stereo sound. maybe my plug is a little too long.
      6. screen brghtness is at 75%. at night in a dark room anything higher than that is overkill.
      6. blacks and shadows during movie playing is not perfect.
      7. i would have wanted predictive text with auto correction. its a pain to keep deleting and retyping misspelled words like i ak doing now.
      8. google maps, lattitude, points and checkins dont work. tried it with my usb 3g modem and it kept on disconnecting.
      9. while browsing, theres only a back widget on thescreen. would havebeen nice if therewas a forward button as well as refresh.
      ………more cokments to follow…….;)-

    • Simula hello Juan,
      din ko na bumili ng 800mhz pad at ako masaya, ngunit ang aking externesr Smart Buddy modem ay hindi maaaring i-install! Hindi ako maaaring pumunta sa internet, maliban para sa WiFi.
      Mayroon ba kayong anumang impormasyon para sa akin bilang lakad ko sa Internet gamit ang Smart Buddy?

      Maligayang Pasko

  47. alam ko basta android, you can root it, install xrecovery and SU to upgrade(or downgrade!?) it to any version of android. i did it to my X8 and its almost like having a high end smartphone!. concern ko lang yung screen quality and the resistive vs capacitative screen plus the brightness. still, whatever the shortcomings, it looks like a good alternative to the more expensive tabs out in the market. how can you go wrong with 6,899 vs 26,000+? at sana may stocks. will be hunting down for one later! ;)-

  48. The specs are great. Pero, ano kaya ang mga pre-installed applications? I was about to buy it yesterday but the sales clerk can’t tell exactly what are the applications installed. Sana nga lang may doument viewer/editor.

    • ang alm q po bsta android may kakayahan n magkaron ng document editor or viewer. bsta ang mhalaga may android market kc un lng ang way pra mas maging useful ang tablet.dun k po mgdodownload ng kht anong apps and games n gusto u pra s tablet.sna makahelp f ever bumili k po then wlang document viewer or editor cguro po download n lng kau bsta most important try nyo muna ung android market f working.

      • hi! what should i find from the android market para mkadownload ng document? excel or word. have u tried s cherrypad? di ko kc makita. ty

    • just experienced the same situation. i went to megamall and robinsons pioneer, walang masagot ang mga sales clerk. they need to have seminars first bago sabak s bentahan. unlike s sony erickson, the guy is so familiar sa binebenta nya. yeah, i know na super cheaper ang cherry pero they still have to train their people. invest on that so the company will grow more..

    • lahat ng maari mong gamiting apps – browsing, surfing, reading, viewing, listening ay thoughtfully ng inilagay ng cherry mobile. but i installed a quickoffice suite para sa doc, excel and powerpoint files na gusto kong ma edit.
      ang hindi lang naka install e mga games, but thousands of free games are available for download sa internet. just google “free apk files download”.

    There’s a demo unit at Robinsons Galleria Food Court Area. I was able to play with it for a few minutes, now I am really thinking of buying it but I’m waiting for the 3899 version since they have not launched that yet.

  50. Saan po makakabili nito? Wala rito sa mga Cherry Mobile Laguna….Saan available kaya ito?

  51. i tried to test the unit at their sm megamall outlet, but they had no demo unit available! i certainly wouldn’t buy it  unless i can first test it first.

      • they have stocks on hand, but no demo unit. they wouldn’t let me try out the “for sale” units. Buy first-complain later?
