It seems that the person manning CM’s Facebook page got a bit trigger happy and posted a picture of the specs of the company’s upcoming 10-inch slate dubbed as Fusion Fire. The image was already taken down, but it had enough exposure for our tipster (@jehgan) to take a screenshot and share it with us.
After doing some research, we found out that the Fusion Fire is a rebranded tablet from Ainol which goes by the name of Novo 10 Hero II. This tablet runs on Android Jellybean which will be displayed on its 10.1-inch HD IPS screen. Underneath its skin is a 1GHz quad-core processor backed by 1GB DDR3 RAM. Other information about the Fusion Fire are as follows:

On Ainol’s webpage, the Fusion Fire’s going price is currently pegged at USD209.90 (USD169.90 special price) which is roughly Php7,000 in our local currency. We’re not sure how much CM will retail this tablet once it hits the market, but it could be around the 9-10K range or below.
Update: Cherry Mobile has posted the price at Php7,999.
Thanks for the tip @jehgan!
