Cherry Mobile recently launched the R9 Tough and R7 Vigor shockproof handsets at an event held at 55 Events Place in Tomas Morato, Quezon City. It was a well attended event and Cherry Mobile was kind enough to send TechnoBaboy an invite. Gracing the event was actor Robin Padilla who was tapped by Cherry Mobile to endorse the new phones.
We have known Cherry Mobile as a cheaper alternative to quality phones and with the launch of the R9 Tough and R7 Vigor handsets, the local company has strengthened its phone line-up. We have seen shockproof phones from giants Nokia and Samsung and the R9 Tough and R7 Vigor handsets are Cherry Mobile entries to this niche market. The difference, of course, is the ultra affordable price of Cherry Mobile’s versions.
The R9 Tough is a Blackberry-esque handset with QWERTY keyboard while the R7 Vigor is a bar phone. These handsets will retail for P2,399 and P1,999, respectively, and will be available around early August.
