The New Cherry Mobile Alpha Play and Alpha Morph Are Windows 8.1 Tablets

Most of you may have already know that Cherry Mobile just outed two Windows Phone 8.1 powered smartphones called Alpha Style and Alpha Luxe, but actually those are not the only new products they launched, the local tech company also unveiled two tablets powered the Microsoft OS, Windows 8.1. These new Intel-based slates also share the same "Alpha" naming, and these are Alpha Play and Alpha Morph. Looks like Alpha line will be Windows devices from Cherry Mobile. I now wonder if other local competitors will follow CM. 

Going back to the tablets, these are full-fledged Windows 8.1 devices, so if you wonder if you can user PC applications on them the answer is definitely yes. Both devices sport the same resolution, use the same processor and feature the same 2MP front-facing camera. The Alpha Morph is a lot bigger and powerful than the Alpha Play, looking at their price tags will probably make you understand why. 

The Cherry Mobile Alpha Play has an 8-inch HD IPS display bearing a 1280x720 resolution. It is not much of a resolution these days for current devices but having it an IPS panel will make this display more attractive and should provide better viewing angle experience. On the inside is the Intel Z3735D quad-core processor clocked at  1.33GHz with 1GB of RAM. The internal storage for this one is a bit bigger than its Android counterpart under the same category which is at 16GB, thanks to its microSD card slot as it supports up to additional 64GB worth of storage. The rear camera is pegged at 5MP with BSI sensor and then a front one at 2MP.  Usual connectivity options are available on the Alpha Play such as WiFi 802.11, Bluetooth, USB 3.0 and an HDMI Port. This Windows 8.1 slate is powered by a 3,500mAh battery size. Everything is for only Php7,999.

The internal storage is also doubled with 32GB and of course the microSD support up to 64GB. It is also important to note that the Alpha Morph comes with a free detachable keyboard, which is very nice to have for a screen with 10 inches of size.
