(Updated) Cherry Mobile Omega Now Available at ₱6,699 Only!


Updated: Saturday, 2013-01-26

Cherry Mobile finally revealed on their Facebook page the official price and availability of the teased Cherry Mobile Omega phone in December 2012, and simply disappeared and forgotten. Some kiosks and dealers were telling customers that Omega is a goner.

But one person I talked to from Cherry Mobile told me a week before Christmas of 2012 that the Omega units already arrived in their warehouse and was just waiting for the go signal to distribute it nationwide. That day has arrived. The Cherry Mobile Omega has been spotted in some kiosks here in Mega Manila already and is prices at ₱6,699 only!

That is pretty cheap compared to my|phone A919 Duo, which I currently have. Not only that, it is below the estimated prices of most bloggers which ranged at ₱6,999 to ₱7,999; some even putting it at ₱8,000 to ₱10,000 range. Fair enough because this model boasts of the following excellent specs for a budget phone. With the availability of the official specs, it is clear that this is below that what was expected to be a similar model as Zopo ZP900 Leader, and yes, below that of my|phone A919 Duo.
