A number of readers have pointed out to me last week that Cherry Mobile is already selling what could be a co-branded Ainol Paladin tablet so I confirmed it with the folks from CM if this as indeed true.
We posted our review of the Ainol Paladin here back in January which was a huge hit for being the first ICS-powered tablet in the Philippines. That, plus the fact that it was really very affordable at Php5,800.
Cherry Mobile‘s official statement was that “Ainol is an exclusive ODM Partner” (Official Device Manufacturer). This means CM can actually carry any or all of the tablets that’s being manufactured by Ainol. That also means you get local warranty and support service for those units as well.
I was also surprised that Cherry Mobile is doing a sale on this unit and priced it at only Php4,999.
Check out the poster above for details of this sale (along with all other Android devices from CM).
