Cherry Mobile MF1: Phone and 3G USB Dongle in One

While every mobile phone brand in the world is obsessed with putting more and more power in their handsets, Cherry Mobile is hooked up in coming up with brighter and more unique ideas.

Smartphones may be the “In” thing and there’s no denying the fact that they are much more efficient. However, not everyone feels the need for these sophisticated gadgets so if you prefer the good old candybar phone with Wi-Fi capability, 3G network support, and at the same time affordability, then Cherry Mobile MF1 is the best for you.

And did we mention it comes with a built-in 3G USB Dongle, too?

Unbelievable? No, it’s not. Besides the typical multimedia player, Bluetooth function, and FM tuner, this handset can be used as a 3G USB Dongle or a portable Wi-Fi hotspot. So, rather than buying a separate 3G USB modem or a Pocket Wi-Fi, the MF1 is a better alternative.

The Cherry Mobile MF1 is available at all Cherry Mobile concept stores, kiosks, and accredited dealers nationwide for only Php1,999.

Dual Core for All: Cherry Mobile Reveals its Hottest Android Smartphones

Adding even more diversity to its array of affordable Android devices, Cherry Mobile unveiled two new touchscreen smartphones designed for everyone on October 24, 2012.

The Cherry Mobile FLARE is suitable for smartphone newbies as well as existing smartphone users who are looking for an upgrade in speed and functionality. It's lightweight, it's stylish, and it has a lot to offer.
But what sets FLARE apart from its competitors is the phone’s price tag. Despite its premium look and design, the unit can be bought for only Php3,999. It runs Android OS v4.0 (popularly known as Ice Cream Sandwich) and sports a 4-inch IPS Capacitive Touchscreen. A 5 megapixel snapper is present at the rear, along with a VGA front camera for video chat. It has 512 of RAM, 4GB of onboard storage and an expandable memory card slot. The phone even provides long-lasting battery performance for continuous mobile entertainment.

During the FLARE UP! event at One Esplanade, Cherry Mobile also introduced TITAN – a Php6,499 touchscreen smartphone which boasts a 5-inch capacitive display and a built-in FM radio. It comes with Android ICS out of the box and features a 1GHz dual core processor, a dual camera, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory. WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G connectivity and a microSD card slot complete the specs. TITAN is also preinstalled with the Opera Mini 7.5 browser which makes it a capable internet-browsing device.

Barangay Cherry Mobile On-The-Go

Change starts when we find it in our hearts. It starts when we find the initiative to move beyond what is needed, when we find space to grow a bit further to help other people. It starts when we care, when you care.

Cherry Mobile, in its three years in the industry, paved way in connecting Filipinos closer  be it families, friends and even strangers. And with the company’s desire to change the way Filipinos communicate, Barangay Cherry Mobile has been established to elicit positive change to those who need it.

As the social development arm of Cherry Mobile, Barangay Cherry Mobile aims to empower Filipinos by reaching out to communities who need support the most. It moves people to act on the most pressing challenges their localities our experiencing by sending petitions for support.

With the debut of Barangay Cherry Mobile last year, warmth from the smiles of people from all walks of life radiated. To highlight the program, 12 Gifts of Christmas was launched by giving Noche Buena gift packs to over 1,500 families at selected areas nationwide.

Early this year, Barangay Cherry Mobile helped address the issues on livelihood geared to combat poverty in one of the municipalities in Siargao islands.

Del Carmen is a 5th class municipality with twenty barangays and four island barangays located in Siargao Island, Surigao del Norte. The locality has a poverty incidence of 67.24% which means that the town is among the poorest in the country. Livelihood sources for most of the people in the island is agriculture and aquamarine but still lacking in latest technological knowledge to maximize output.

The Office of the Mayor requested for support for the livelihood program of Barangay Quezon, one of their poorest barangays. The barangay is located at the northern tip of the boundary of the municipal of Del Carmen, 20 kms from the poblacion. Access to the area is difficult due to the undeveloped roads and its mountainous location.

Barangay Cherry Mobile funded the initial capital worth 50,000php for the pineapple production livelihood program in Barangay Quezon. The fund covered for 30,000 seedlings for one hectare and organic fertilizer.

Onsite Tarpaulin Used for Food Festival of Del Carmen

The seedlings were purchased in the locality of Siargao and planted in June 2012. After two months, the farmers of Brgy Quezon harvested the pineapples. The produced goods were sold during the fiesta at the cost of 10php to 20php per kilo.

The Barangay Cherry Mobile team salutes the farmers of Barangay Quezon for their hard work in the fruition of the pineapple production. The commendable efforts for the expansion of their livelihood project will always be an ace over poverty mitigation which we are all aiming for.
