Cherry Mobile Outs Two Windows Phone 8.1 Powered Devices

Alpha Style and Alpha Luxe are two of the first Windows Phone-powered smartphones unveiled by Cherry Mobile at its WOW (We're On Windows) earlier event today.  It actually surprised me to learn that Cherry Mobile has jumped to Windows Phone OS race for its new smartphone offerings, and that because of a couple of reasons. First many consumers prefer to have Android over Windows devices, second is the app selections on Android platform is wider than the Windows one and of course most of the Windows Phones I know are quite pricey. But Cherry Mobile is introducing these devices at a very affordable price which is kind of  a smart move so let us see when this thing is going. 

Of the two, the Alpha Luxe offers a set of nice specs and those are 5-inch HD IPS Display with Dragontrail glass protection. It's quite massive device so the 720p and IPS display should be enough to provide a better viewing  experience. It is powered by a Snapdragon 200 processor clocked at 1.2Hz quad-core paired with 1GB RAM. There is an internal storage of 8GB and it supports microSD card up to 32GB. For cameras there are 8MP and 2MP rear and front respectively. Then it runs Windows Phone 8.1 version and all its juice will be coming from a 2,000mAh battery. The good thing about it is it's only for Php4,999. I think it is the best deal of the year.
