Cherry Mobile Fusion Fire, 10" quad-core Android Jellybean tablet for PHP 7,999

Cherry Mobile has incidentally revealed their upcoming tablet offering on their Facebook page (but is now available on stores), the Cherry Mobile Fusion Fire. It is a 10" quad-core Android tablet running on Jellybean, for a price of PHP 7,999. According to some sources, it's possibly a rebranded Ainol Novo 10 Hero II due to highly similar specs, which will be listed after the break.

The Cherry Mobile Fusion Fire is a good tablet choice for people looking a nice capable tablet without having to spend more than 10K. You'll get a quad-core processor, a gig of RAM, large 16GB of storage which you can expand more with a memory card, all of which are just perfect for gaming and watching movies.

For internet, you can rely on a Wi-Fi connection, or a 3G dongle which you can connect to the USB port.

What the Fusion Fire is less capable of is on the camera, with only 2MP resolution, you'll only get shots fit for posting on social networking sites. But I think it's much better if you'll use your phone camera or a dedicated camera. :)

It runs Jellybean out-of-the-box which is very nice. On the other hand, the 8000 mAh battery may last a day if you're a moderate user.

The Cherry Mobile Fusion Fire is now available in black and white colors at Cherry Mobile SM North Edsa and SM MOA.
