Remember the Cherry Mobile Superion TV 2 teaser that the local phone brand posted on its Facebook page? It looks like it’s been officially priced. You’re getting a complete set of wireless connectivity sans 4G along with the ability to watch TV on the go for just Php4,999!
As far as specs go, it could be better. You’re getting a 7 inch screen with a resolution of 800 x 480 (WVGA), a 1GHz dual core processor, 512Mb of RAM and 4Gb of internal storage. What I really like about the Superion TV 2 is that it features 3G connectivity for faster browsing over a cellular connection. And while the specs haven’t been confirmed by Cherry Mobile, their Thailand website reveals that it should also have Bluetooth and GPS, which is nice and something that a lot of budget tablets usually forgo just to cut costs.
Naturally due to its namesake, it also has a built-in TV tuner to watch Be Careful With My Heart wherever you please. I’ve never been a fan of mobile TV in smartphones and tablets because the reception was never that good on the go. Hopefully, the one on the Cherrry Mobile Superion TV 2 will be better.
To put things in perspective, you’d usually pay upwards of Php10k just to get this kind of connectivity on a tablet. The screen is a bit of a downside though. It would have been nicer if it were at least 1024 x 600 (WSVGA). The screen should still be fine for regular web browsing and gaming, but as a comic or manga reader, you’ll find yourself zooming in a lot to read the smaller text. So at Php4,999, would you buy the Cherry Mobile Superion TV 2?
