And no, we are not referring to ‘that’ kind of cherry, despite how it may sound. But if you fancy an Android-powered tablet that has the raw computing horsepower and hardware to go up toe to toe against Samsung’s popular (and overpowered) Galaxy Tab, China may just be the best place to be for the upcoming holidays. Or more specifically, ShenZhen. After all, why aim for the Galaxy when a Cherry will suffice?
That being said, it is also common knowledge that decent tablets are not the most affordable devices, while cheaper alternatives produced by the same reputable OEMs usually fail to achieve the same performance (and visual appeal) as their premium counterparts. But if brand reputation is not a priority, Cherrypal’s just-updated Cherrypad tablet will probably be the best fit for those who crave decent tablet performance at rock-bottom prices.
That being said, a tablet with such specifications can usually be expected to fetch at least US$600 in the market, right? Not with Cherrypal though: online reports claim that the updated Cherrypad is expected to retail for the jaw-dropping price of 2500 yuan or approximately US$380, way below what most reputable OEMs are asking for. And as usual, here’s hoping you have a very close Chinese friend if the Cherrypad is going to make an appearance in your ‘Things I want to get’ list.
