7″ Cherry Pad Turbo goes for Php6,899

Cherry Mobile outs yet another Android tablet yesterday, a 7-inch Cherry Pad Turbo, running Gingerbread 2.3 and sells for only Php6,899.

While most other tablet manufacturers go for the obvious route, Cherry Mobile went the other way with a super-affordable WiFi-only tablet.

Cherry Pad Turbo specs:
7-inch capacitive display
1.2GHz Rockchip processor
512MB RAM
4GB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD
WiFi 802.11 b/g
Bluetooth 2.1
Android 2.3 Gingerbread

The rest of the specs like battery, screen resolution and wether that Rockchip processor is a single-core 1.2GHz or a dual-core 600MHz we’ve been seeing in other China tablets. And unlike the CM Superion, this one does not have a 3G modem in it.

Cherry Mobile is supposed to sell Cherry Pad Turbo at Php9,899 but is doing an intro price of only Php6,899.

    I bought one today. I’ll have to say i am impressed so far – too bad it doesnt have GSM capabilities, but still as internet/multimedia device, it does its job pretty well. ill just have to check out battery life and see how it holds.

    I bought mine a week ago at SM Marikina. I am a novice on android so the tablet satisfies my needs. It served only as a tester on android device in addition to the iOS of ipod, ipad and iphone devices on projects I am doing. It comes only with a user manual and there is no technical specs. It is gingerbread 2.3.1. It has front and 2 MP back camera that can capture video that is not so smooth. My daughter play games and sometimes hangs up. Good there is a reset button. I enhanced it by buying a 32 gb tf card and a keyboard. Battery lasted for 4 hours running slideshow, video and game. It has a HDMI output and full USB host for mouse, keyboard, 3G modem and peripherals. I tried a sun usb broadband and does not work yet as I was told by the shop, maybe and upgrade later. For it’s price, it is a better buy.

      It’s android os so you won’t be able to install microsoft word on it. What you can install are some compatible applications like “documents to go” or “officesuite”

    good thing i didnt buy this Cm tablet.. its a wste of your money.. sooo many complaints.. like over heating, crash problems.. then after 2 weeks you need to replace it due to its damages.. i bought zte v9 its cheap.. onky 12000 pesos brand new and its quality can compete with samsung tablets.. and it is a phone!! down side is 600mhz processor but hey.. its quality i tell you.. i hve mine 8months now.. no complains at all!!!

      But did you buy one and tested it? Or are you just mouthing second hand info? I will believe you if you buy a unit, test it personally and tell us if it’s worth the P6.8k they’re asking for it. Nothing could be simpler, right?

    I was really impressed with specs and the affordability of this tab–was looking at it the other day here at yugatech and i wanted to buy asap–went to the mall immediately–unfortunately naubusan sila ng stocks–kaso, when I started checking for reviews,dami tlgang bad reviews at marami silang lemon units–syang–kung mgtatagal lng I won’t hesitate to grab one of this kaso–nkakatakot–7thousand is still 7 thousand–syang din kung masira lng agad–kung marami lang sanang options na affordable and quality tabs dito sa pinas such as lenovo idepad a1 (199 USD)–mas okay sana–

    bought one – cherry turbo, it has a problem when booting up, it hangs up when power is on and you end up seeing only the logo…i check the internet and found many similar complaints….this model sucks, my cherrypad is only 2 months old and seldomly used.
