Say hello to more affordable Qualcomm Powered LTE devices courtesy of Cherry Mobile!
As Filipinos get more easily comfortable to becoming more connected and become more demanding of better and fast internet connection, Cherry Mobile today launched a slew of 4G LTE devices. LTE or Long Term Evolution is a 4G wireless communication standard that is set to provide speeds up to 10x the speeds of 3G networks but will require a 4G LTE enabled device as well.
According to Cherry Mobile’s Product Manager for Android Smartphones and Tablets, “With the rising number of mobile internet users and advent of reasonably priced unli-4G data promos/plan, the only missing piece is an equally inexpensive LTE-enabled device. This is why we at Cherry Mobile have partnered with Qualcomm to help do our part in connecting the nation to faster internet speeds on the go” .
