It looks like Cherry Mobile is successful in its first foray into selling Windows-powered tablets, which is why there’s another Windows 8.1 laptop/tablet hybrid from the company that’s coming our way. It’s called the Cherry Mobile Alpha Shift.

As a tablet, the Cherry Mobile Alpha Shift features a 1.33Ghz quad-core processor and a HD graphics chip, both by Intel. It also has 2GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage, 1.2-megapixel camera and a 10.1-inch display with IPS LCD technology. Since these specs are quite similar to the ones found in the Alpha Morph, the Alpha Shift differentiates itself by having a keyboard dock with an integrated 500GB hard disk. The tablet further offers micro-USB and micro-HDMI ports.

Cherry Mobile Alpha Shift (2)

Cherry Mobile has yet to officially announce the Alpha Shift, but it has already been spotted on Lazada Philippines. It’s selling there for Php14,499 with a one-year product warranty and silver as the sole color choice. Compared to the Alpha Morph, the Alpha Shift comes with a smaller battery capacity. Hopefully, the keyboard dock also acts as a secondary battery to compensate. We’re also hoping that when it’s official announced, the Alpha Shift comes with software freebies, such as a free Office 365 subscription and OneDrive storage.

  1. I bought a unit from L A Z a da and I noticed that the build quality isn’t as good as, say, the ASUS T100. The latch / cradle works wonderfully though and holds the tablet in place when docked on the keyboard. What really irks me is the LCD quality — the digitizer dots can are very visible! Screen is also just 1280X800.

    Here are slots on this one:
    – Micro SD card reader
    – Micro USB (OTG Cable capable, but the cable wasn’t part of the package unlike Alpha Morph)
    – Micro HDMI (For comparison Alpha Morph has mini HDMI)
    – Headphone jack
    – AC Adapter jack

    For the keyboard dock:
    -1x full size USB connector

    Oh yeah, it also came in with a 500 GB in the keyboard dock, but it has no extra batteries. I haven’t fully tested the unit yet to see how long its batteries last too. Hope this helps.

    For Gab below, The Qube Colonia has the same spec and design as Alpha Morph but is indeed cheaper. I believe I got my Alpha Morphs at Php 12k.

  2. hope you guys check out the qube colonia notebook, very similar to this tablet-laptop, but i think they’re selling it at around 10k.
