Cherry Mobile offers cheapest smartphone in the country

Yesterday, Filipino-brand and John Lloyd-endorsed mobile phone manufacturer, Cherry Mobile announced their first smartphone which runs on the latest Windows Mobile platform. The Cherry Mobile Eclipse is probably the cheapest WinMo smarthphone out there at only Php9,999.

The Eclipse runs on a 416Mhz MTK processor and the standard Windows Mobile 6.5 platform. No customizations whatsoever on the OS but the basic version still packs a lot of features including Microsoft’s mobile data backup service, My Phone.

Unfortunately, connectivity is a bit limited for this smartphone due to the lack of 3G. It’s 2-megapixel camera may seem lacking for some people as well.

What would probably make people consider this smartphone is its dual-sim capability and the sub-10k price. The Cherry Mobile Eclipse will be available some time in the first quarter of this year.

      Beat other WINMO’s? Are you like stupid or something? With that price tag, how could you possibly expect this phone to beat other WINMO’s?

      Cherry Mobile is catching it’s wind. Kudos to them for bringing us a cheap, dual sim, WINMO phone.

  2. cherry mobile is very interesting… i’ve seen a couple of friends use it… i think they should have opted for android rather than winmo…

  3. Is there a website to check the full spec? Nice to know its pinoy made :)

  4. @etechnology, all i can see that is unique about it is the dual-sim feature.

    @jab, yeah if android becomes really popular here in the country maybe they can make an android phone

    @razorous, it’s not yet on their official website. i’ll post about full specs when it’s up.

  5. Sayang naman there’s no 3G. Could have been a really good phone.

  7. I might say connectivity is a bit limited for this smartphone due to the lack of 3G nationwide. It’s 2-megapixel camera may seem lacking for some people as well. What would probably make people consider is its dual-sim capability.
