Published on February 18th, 2013
Cherry Mobile has recently released their latest 7-inch Android tablet that is powered by a whooping 1.0Ghz quad core processor for a very affordable price – the Cherry Mobile Fusion Bolt. The Fusion Bolt has has a price tag of just only Php 3,999 (SRP). For those who are wanting to have a 7-inch tablet but are on a tight budget, this is your chance. See specifications below.

Based on the specifications mentioned, the Fusion Bolt has a good display, considering that it sports an IPS display with 10-point multi-touch feature. I think the main advantage of the Fusion Bolt is its display, processor (which is quad core with GPU), Jelly Bean out of the box and a very affordable price tag.
The obvious cons or disadvantage of this 7-inch tablet is its camera. As of to date, we don’t know yet how fast is this tablet and how does it par with other budget friendly 7-inch tablets currently on the market.

Like I said, the Cherry Mobile Fusion Bolt is priced at Php 3,999 only and is said to be available nationwide starting March 2013. Of course, you can buy this at Cherry Mobile stores nationwide, as well as most of cellphone stores.
