A peek behind Cherry Mobile new Quad Core tablet (CM fusion Bolt)
It looks like the day when Cherry Mobile Flare first came out last November 2012, lots of people wants to own this new high-end and very affordable device from Cherry mobile again. Its hard to believe that this tablet packed with next generation features and specification can only be sell in a very low price, they called it Cherry Mobile Fusion Bolt.
Cherry Mobile launched the Fusion Bolt on March 6, 2013 with SRP of Php3,999. There is no way you can buy phones or tablet from popular brands with P4,000 that’s why I know that there are some compromises with this tablet. Don’t expect premium materials for its case and glass, but its not the kind of tablet that you could see in small stores in Quiapo and Divisoria with low-end specs like single-core processor and short life battery.
For techie person like me, pixel is really matter and I’m glad that the local company is now paying attention in display resolution. Cherry Mobile Fusion Bolt has a bright 7-inches IPS LCD Display with 1280 x 800 resolution and it gives the tablet a pixel density of 213 ppi (pixel per inch). It come with quad-core processor clocked at 1.0GHz, 1GB of RAM, 4000 mAh battery life and powered by Android OS ver4.1 Jelly Bean. It has a responsive touchscreen and easy to navigate with Android 4.1, can run high-quality 3D games like Temple Run 2, NBA2K13, Modern Combat 4 and Nova 3.
In terms of file sharing, Fusion Bolt has no Bluetooth feature, but removing this function will be fine for me as long as the mini HDMI port, USB port and USB (On-the-go) feature is there. Dual camera is also quipped to Fusion Bolt, 2.0 megapixel on the back and VGA quality on front. I think tablet doesn’t need high megapixel camera that will only make the price high and we do not use tablet camera for image capturing, we often use phone camera which is smaller and easy to handle.

I know some of my friends bought class C low-quality gadgets from Greenhills and Quiapo and I still have many friends who wants to experience having a smartphone and tablet. CM Fusion Bolt is a mid-range level but not a perfect tablet, but with its features and affordable price range, it is something that I can recommend to them.
CM Fusion Bolt is available in Cherry Mobile stores nationwide and some online stores like Lazada.
