Cherry Mobile teases new Windows devices for Computex

One of the great things about the current Windows Phone ecosystem is the number of local manufacturers getting devices out there. One of those is Cherry Mobile, known in the Philippines, and after showing new devices in Barcelona at Mobile World Congress they're back. This time it's Computex in Taipei, and they're teasing some new Windows related announcements.

On the company's Facebook page they're teasing announcements involving both Microsoft and Intel. But, the two are on different graphics, so it absolutely doesn't mean we should start assuming there's an Intel powered Windows Phone on the way. Intel provides chips for Android phones as well, you know.

In any case, Cherry Mobile is here, Microsoft is here and we're looking forward to seeing what's announced. There's a chance the new devices could be featured during Microsoft's Computex Forum event on June 3, and we'll be live from there to bring you everything that goes down.

  • That almost looks reminiscent the windows central logo
  • Yeah agreed.....
  • 3 blocks missing. Lol
  • The missing blocks are part of a DLC
  • Wow cherry mobile :)
  • Another lowend :)
  • 5 inch SD410 720p 1GB of RAM comes with Win 8.1 Updatable to Win 10 (there, article done)
  • Lol too true
  • Updated article: 8MP rear camera with flash and 2MP front.
  • I have a friend who has a cherry mobile Windows Phone..and even though the hardware is not as beautiful as Nokia's, still it's an awesome phone, especially for the price :)
  • You would think an Intel-powered Windows smartphone would be coming before the launch of Windows 10 because of Continuum. If they want this feature to work fully, the smartphone needs to have the power of a netbook at least.
  • Continuum for phones has nothing to do with desktop, and as such benefits in no way from x86. Not that I would be opposed if a phone with desktop included would be announced.
  • Intel powered handhelds(umpc) came and gone due to their OEMs unwilling to budge on price.
  • Like it
  • Yep! Philippines. Cherry mobile are known for low cost mobile and tablets with high specs. But usually Androids. They advertised Windows 8.1 tablets endorsed by a well known actress.
  • My friend tested the waters and got into Windows Phones (or mobile) bec of Cherry Mobile.
  • Wow a Philippine brand presence at Computex. Mabuhay!
  • put that cringy 'pinoy pride' away from here! gross.
  • You mad bro?
  • What's gross? Having Cherry Mobile presence is good for the Windows ecosystem and just shows support from another Asian market. Any problem with that?
  • Chill bro! As long as he didn't use the phrase 'Proud to be Pinoy' its all good. Mabuhay is just like saying hello!
  • Strange that we see so many OEMs from around the world jumping the Windows bandwagon and yet the smartphone manufacturers percentage is 97% for Microsoft/Nokia!
  • And worldwide share is 2.5% from the latest Gartner numbers.
  • It takes time. A lot of people are probably stuck with a carrier for months to years and many of these new brands won't be coming to all markets.
  • wow..more windows tablets for the philippines!  just bought a cloudfon dual boot 7 inch tablet..check this out http://www.yugatech.com/personal-computing/cloudfone-epic-7-1-and-8-9-du...
  • Ahhh. The power of 10.
  • The phones they showed in Barcelona are still not available at this time.
  • this is good news especially for those who cant afford high-end windows phone devices...cherry mobiles are cheap, but im glad theyre targetting the common masses, i hope theyll also include cherry mobile in the official microsoft firmware system update database website
