Cherry Mobile W900: The Dragon Phone for Php9,999

Cherry Mobile is set to launch a new mid-range Android smartphone next week they aptly called “The Dragon Phone” because of the 1.2GHz Qualcomm SnapDragon chip that came with it.

This 4-inch smartphone isn’t really a successor to the Magnum HD or the Magnum 2X but more of a parallel release as an affordable but decently spec’ed handset.

Cherry Mobile W900 specs:
4-inch capacitive display @ 480×800 pixels
Qualcomm Snapdragon S2 1.2GHz processor
Adreno 205
1GB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD (8GB included)
HSPA+ 21Mbps
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, WiFi hotspot
Bluetooth 2.1
GPS w/ aGPS support
DLNA certified, DivX, Dolby Digital Plus
5MP rear camera w/ 720p HD video recording
VGA front-facing camera
Android 2.3 Gingerbread

If I am not mistaken, this could be the same chip that was used in the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and the HTC Incredible last year.

I failed to check the battery capacity but my guess is that it will be around the 1500mAh rating which is the norm. We’ll post more details once we get more time during the May 3 launch event.

The W900 should be available in Cherry Mobile store nationwide next week with a suggested retail price of Php9,999.

      I’m also a proud owner of cherry mobile android phone, the Candy Chat. Been using it for 4 months now, never had a problem.

      I think most people are referring to phones that have TV, most of them are easy to break and have firmware issues.
