In case you missed it, the Cherry Mobile Superion Core first appeared last year, featuring a quad-core mobile processor and a 7-inch IPS LCD for Php6,499. It appears that this HSPA+ phablet is still available, as have been announced on the company’s Facebook fan page.

Only second to the Fusion Bolt, the Cherry Mobile Superion Core is an affordable entry to quad-core tablet computing. It’s specifically powered by a 1.2GHz MediaTek MT8389 processor, along with a PowerVR SGX544 GPU and 1GB of RAM, to fire up the 7-inch touchscreen that’s capable of multiple touch input.

The 5-megapixel rear-facing and 2-megapixel front-facing cameras are nothing spectacular, but should suffice for the occasional snapshots. There’s 4GB of storage onboard, presumably half of which is reserved for system files. Luckily, there’s also a microSD slot expansion of up to 32GB.

Cherry Mobile Superion Core (2)

Described by Cherry Mobile itself as “a thin but solid slate for people on-the-go,” the Superion Core comes with a HSPA+ modem that’s expected to reach high speeds in 3G networks. Unlike many locally branded devices, note that this phone/tablet hybrid only comes with a single slot for a SIM module. At least it can make phone calls, whereas other tablets only have SMS capabilities.

Other specs include an accelerometer and sensors for proximity and light. The Cherry Mobile Superion Core also comes with USB On-the-Go Support for grabbing files from a USB drive without needing a computer. There are also the usual connectivity options—Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi, and others.

At Php6,499, the Cherry Mobile Superion Core is priced between two bigger Superion tablets—the dual core Voyager and the better equipped Odyssey. Anyone interested in buying should be able to find a unit at the company’s concept stores and accredited dealers across the country.
