Introducing Cherry Mobile Android Tablets for Christmas

Cherry Mobile has introduced three models of Android Tablets worth trying out. With its specs and pricing, I am tempted to acquire one to give as a Christmas gift to my son who is very fond of using the more expensive Samsung Galaxy Tab as a video game device. The devices are aptly named Cherry Pad, Cherry Pad Turbo and Supreme. Looking a the picture taken from a local newspaper where the ad was posted, I am kinda confused with the positioning of the specs and the pricing. I think there could be some mistake here on the layout and I'm gonna verify it with Cherry Mobile. To be sure I'll bring the newspaper ad. The one on the left named Cherry Pad with a tag price of P3,899 has  Android Gingerbread 2.3 and 1.2  Ghz processor while the one on the right with price tag of P6,899 has Android Froyo 2.2 and 800 Mhz processor. There must be something amiss here because the one with the higher specs has been priced low and the one with the lower specs has been priced high. We'll find it out.

The third item "Supreme" looks interesting with its Nvidia Tegra2 dual core 1 Ghz processor and upgradeable OS plus 3G. One thing left that we'll have to verify is the screen quality, if it's as good as the more expensive Samsung Galaxy's, they're in for a stiff competition with this one.

Update from Cherry Mobile:

The Corporate Communications Officer of Cherry Mobile has emailed me a while ago and sent word about my observation on the ad. Indeed there was a mistake on the placement of the specs and they extended their apologies for the error. Quoting from their email:

"Cherry Pad Turbo is the advanced version with the Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 7" touch panel, 1.2 ghz processor, dual camera with 2 MP main and 4GB internal storage features at Php6,899. On the other hand, Cherry Pad retails for Php3,899 and runs on the Android 2.2 Froyo technology."

So this is it folks, the confusion is settled and it's time to give this Cherry Pads a try. I want one.
