|Cherry Mobile Launched Alpha Style|
Cherry Mobile has recently launched its new Alpha series composed of two Windows Phone 8.1 smartphones and two full-pledged Windows 8.1 tablet in the glamorous event held last night at the Harbor Tent of Sofitel Manila.
The cheapest among them is the entry level Cherry Mobile Alpha Style with a jaw-dropping SRP of just Php2,999. Yep, you read it right, it is less than 3K pesos, the cheapest WP 8.1 device that you can find in the local market.
The Alpha Style sports a decent 4-inch IPS capacitive touchscreen display powered by 1.2GHz quad core processor coupled with 512MB of RAM. It has 4GB of ROM plus up to 32GB of additional storage using a micro SD card.
Connectivity wise, it has dual SIM slots that support HSPA+, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth. Meanwhile, the its camera department consists of 5MP main shooter on the back accompanied by an LED flash and a VGA snapper in the front.
For the sake of comparison, the CM Alpha Style has the same screen size, processor, ROM and RAM with the Nokia Lumia 530. However, it got more advantages like LED flash for the main camera, the secondary camera in front (whereas the Lumia 530 has none) and of course, it is definitely cheaper, 2000 pesos cheaper to be exact.
