Cherry Mobile P1, a Bluetooth dialer for your smartphone

Cherry Mobile has recently introduced a new phone that is designed to be paired with your primary smartphone via Bluetooth – the Cherry Mobile P1.

According to Cherry Mobile’s post on their Facebook page, the P1 is a “mini smartphone dialer” that needs to be paired with your main smartphone using Bluetooth. This will then allow you to make and receive calls without having to bring out your main phone in public. In addition, it can also access your inbox and music playlist.

Last year, HTC released a similar product called the HTC Mini – a China-exclusive NFC and Bluetooth equipped device made for the HTC Butterfly. Sony also released the Smart Bluetooth Handset SBH52 for the 6-inch Xperia Z Ultra which is a handheld audio accessory that can accept calls and display notifications.

Like the accessories mentioned above, the Cherry Mobile P1 aims to address the problem of having to use your main phone in not-so-safe locations. It’s also a good companion for phone equipped tablets.

The Cherry Mobile P1 is now available for Php799.

    It does have its own sim card slot to act as a standalone phone. Or as stated in the article, you can have it simless to pair and sync with ur smartphone for calls, texts and music. Its nice, i actually have one paired with my note 2.

  9. If this functionality would be built within their CM phone/watch (kung anuman tawag dun), mas magiging mas benta ito.

    I went to the CM kios at Rob.Magnolia. they said that it is only compatible with an ANDROID OS. So if your phone is running Android, you may use this. I was supposed to buy one but when I asked the price, the seller said its Php1,150. I didn’t buy because I read in this article that it was supposed to be Php799. Maybe i’ll scout other CM stores. :)

  16. bumili ako nito kanina, tinry ko sa IOS, nag pair up naman sya, kaso yung messaging hindi. Kailangan pa ng BMAP para sa messaging. Sa call functions naman, nakakapag dial sya from the P1 kaso, sa mismong phone mo pa rin maririnig yung kausap mo.

    atleast pwede syang backup phone

  17. Bought this last week. Surely does the job. works alright with the iPhone 5S on call and phonebook sync…. BUT it doesn’t sync the Messages. Anybody know a workaround for this one?

  22. Any other phone similar to this one in terms of functionality (aside from HTC Mini)? P1 is out of stock in my area. Can’t find any online shop who has this model. Anyone?

    will this work if paired to an iphone/any phones and has a sim card at the same time?

    Reply
  25. I have an ASUS ZENFONE 5 paired with a CHERRY P1.
    It works fine. It is able to send and receive sms and make and receive calls.

    CONS:
    -names of contact does NOT show in sms inbox, only number of the contact
    -will not alarm/sound/vibrate/notify for new sms received, only when there is incoming call

    Overall: It is a great decoy phone!
