Cherry Mobile is a local mobile phone company in the Philippines that’s been quite known now because of the many Android smartphone’s they’ve been releasing since last year. First there was Cherry Mobile Flare which was the beginning – it was very affordable for its price, 3,999 PHP that even up to now it’s mostly out of stock. Other than its price is its processor which is dual core, having 512 mb of ram.
After that, many other models were released. Even though they were “re-branded” it’s been a good way for them to get more customers indeed. I myself, got lured into buying Cherry Mobile Titan TV but due to the lack of time to go to a place that has it (everywhere I went to, it was out of stock!) I ended up Cherry Mobile Titan instead, its predecessor.
My New CM Titan White
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
Dual-sim / Dual Standby
5.0-inch WVGA Capacitive Touchscreen, 480×800 pixel resolution
MediaTek MT6577 1GHz dual-core processor
4GB internal storage (expandable up to 32GB via microSD)
5-megapixel rear camera with flash
VGA front camera
3G, HSPA+ 21Mbps
Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi hotspot
The specs aren’t bad, especially for someone like me who comes from a single processor powered Android phone. However, Titan TV has more ram and Flare has a more speedy processor. What I do like the most is the battery (Titan TV has the almost same battery life as well, 2500 mAh). I love the design however! At first it would look big but it feels like having a Samsung Galaxy Note. It’s also good for gaming, given that it’s a phablet (phone and tablet).
Some of the cons for me would be the camera, it’s 5 MP however, I still find my Sony ST15i camera better (even if they have the same specs). Also, the front camera would have been better – but I guess they saved the best for Titan TV (it has 2 MP front camera). For the rest, I’m not really having any problem! Well, I still have more days to find out.
Tomorrow I’m planning to buy a new mini SD card to try the memory swap I’ve been reading. It needs a class 10 sd card and I hope I get a 32-16 gb sd card. Meanwhile, I’ll enjoy my new Titan while playing good music and with vox night train
Lately, I’ve been tinkering with my Nokia X5 (Strawberry) which led me to download/buy new themes over Nokia Ovi Store at the same time, I had to open my Nokia Ovi account. Little did I know, I had two..actually, three! I forgot the password to the other one.

But it led me to thinking…why didn’t we use the Nokia Ovi Messenger so much? It’s almost the same with BBM and iMessage after all. In fact, it came before iMessage. The only time I used it (with my first account with Nokia Ovi) was last year July (same time I got my Nokia X5) with a close friend. But eventually, we didn’t chat much. The @ovi.com address is pretty neat. My boyfriend owned a Nokia C3 back then as well but it’s not just really his type loading up for subscription which is partly a reason. Nevertheless, I would be happy to use it sometime…the only thing is I have no one to chat there right now anyway.
A few days ago, Yugatech(yugatech.com) spread the news about Lenovo P700. It’s Lenovo’s dual SIM phone entry that is running Android OS Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0.3)
4.0″ IPS LCD @ 800×480 pixels, 240ppi
MediaTek MT6575 1.0GHz (1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 CPU)
PowerVR SGX531 graphics
4GB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
5MP autofocus rear camera
720p video recording
VGA front-facing camera
GPS w/ aGPS support
FM Radio tuner
2500mAh Li-Ion battery
Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich
Lenovo, being fairly new to the Philippine mobile phone market, it’s pretty amazing what they have right now. According to him, its price may range from 10,999 PHP and above. Looks like a good buy to me.
Only downside is that only one of your sim card can use 3G and the other uses 2G. Nevertheless, what the heck? The phone is running 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich!
Gadgets and everything “tech” are really nice. Everything else that technology has for us, perhaps. However, lately, there are more “gaps” than bridges to communication.
For example, lately, it’s been hard getting the customer service of phone network providers (and internet) to understand their clients. Although it’s not their fault, it would be nice if they answered like the answering service at AnsweringServiceAgency.com.
It’s just over quality, I think some call center companies are thinking of quantity instead. Communication is very essential and a good one can lead to better results and sales after all.
Finally, Google releases Google Chrome for iOS devices. For quite some time now, most iOS users were depending on Dolphin Browser and other fancy browsers that could compare to Chrome’s features. Now that the official is released, what do you think will it bring? Perhaps Safari will have to go now?
However, those who have tried out claims it’s not really Google Chrome but rather still the built-in OS because of this:
Google’s browser UI wrapped around the Webkit rendering engine
I haven’t tried it but about to download, it’s available in iTunes now so give it a try! Google Chrome - iTunes App Store
