It’s official! After generating almost iPhone-like levels of anticipation and buzz in the Philippine market, Cherry Mobile has finally announced on their Facebook page that their much-awaited Flare will be hitting the market on November 17 (this Saturday!). However it will only be available at SM City North Edsa and Robinsons Place Manila for the time being. The Cherry Mobile Flare goes for and will officially go on sale starting 1PM and will continue until stocks last. The first 50 buyers will get some freebies to go with their purchase, and there will be a limit of only 1 unit per customer as stocks are limited. No news yet when it will become available at other Cherry Mobile kiosks and dealers.
Back when I started MobileTechPinoy in 2012, phablets weren't a thing yet. I enjoyed the stares I got from iPhone owners whenever I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Note at the time. I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.
