Cherry Mobile has been in the budget phone business for quite some time now. It is one of the most prolific local phone brands and is also one of the most aggressive when it comes to marketing as shown by the number of celebrity endorsers it has tapped so far. As to the quality of products, I cannot say it is the most trusted considering the comments I get from readers. Very recently, it launched the Cherry Mobile W900 Dragon Phone, a 4-inch Android phone that has the budget-conscious buyers in mind.
In terms of specs, the Cherry Mobile W900 Dragon Phone is not one that aims to impress. It has a 4-inch capacitive LCD display with 800 x 480 WVGA resolution, a 1.2GHz single core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 5 megapixel camera with 720p HD video capture, and is also DLNA compatible. It runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread and there’s no word if ICS is in the pipeline. For storage, the Cherry Mobile W900 Dragon Phone has a measly 1GB internal storage but thankfully, there’s a microSD expansion slot.
The design of the Cherry Mobile W900 is not one to get excited about. It’s a poor effort, in my opinion, and shows elements copied from Blackberry handsets. What could attract buyers though is the P9,990 retail price. But for this price, there are other nice alternatives in the market from more trusted brands that you should check out.
