Cherry Mobile Releases Most Affordable Windows Phone in the World – the Php 2,999 Alpha Style


Most affordable Windows Phone ever!

Cherry Mobile has announced the Alpha Style, their latest budget smartphone running on Windows Phone 8.1. Priced at just Php 2,999 (around 68 USD).

Cherry Mobile Alpha Style specs

  • 1.2GHz quad-core processor
  • Adreno 305
  • 512MB of RAM
  • 4-inch IPS display
  • 4GB of storage, expandable via microSD
  • 5-megapixel rear camera
  • VGA front camera
  • WiFi, Bluetooth
  • Windows Phone 8.1 OS
  • Dual SIM

If you remember, Microsoft announced that they will be allowing ODMs and manufacturers to use Windows and Windows Phone for free under a certain screensize. This was done to promote growth in the Windows ecosystem, and it seems that it’s done exactly what the company intended. It’s still unclear if the company will rollout similar initiatives in other developing countries, or if it’s mostly a PH only thing, but one thing’s for sure – Microsoft has found a great ally with Cherry Mobile.

  1. Hahayzzzz…. Akala ko android ni release nila. Hindi pa naman ako bumili ng tab kasi akala ko android ang irerelease nila. :(


    Anyways, sana maganda tong phone nato. Gud to know na may affordable na na windows phone dito sa pinas. :)

  2. Excuse me, do you know the difference of windows phone 8.1 to window 8.1?
    Windowsphone 8.1= mobile
    windows 8.1 = desktop

  3. Wow that soc, sd400 b yan? Imagine ganyan specs ng android at that price. .boom! Well, yan maganda sa wp, kh8 ganyan price, maganda ang specs compared sa same price, lower spec’d crapy android. And wow that processor and ram at that price, tumbling si android. .btw, pgdating ni android L, or android 5.0, ma.phase out ang mga below 4gb and below 512 mb na ram since mg.i2ba ang app runtym nito. Meaning, cheap android with version 5 is a no no due to min spec requirement, except sa mga under android one program

  4. Nice move for Microsoft. I will buy. At least maiba naman. Let’s give Microsoft Windows Phone a chance, for the generosity and not being greedy this time.

  5. Diba pwede nmn mga emulator dito? Android lang gamit ko lagi yung mga unit na patry nmn po ng nga emulator ppsspp and bluestacks.

  6. ask lng po kung my kelangan pa iset sa settings para mkapag send ng message….nkaka received po cia ng message at call….pero ndi sya makapag send ng message….
