The pursuit to getting the world connected to the internet is moving along slowly but steadily for companies like Google. Keeping that momentum going, Google has just announced a couple new Android One powered devices, destined for the Philippines.
We recently took a shot or two at Android One in our Friday Debate Podcast, our general approach was that the devices did not offer enough bang for the buck vs some of the competition out there right now. As true as they may or may not be, Cherry Mobile and MyPhone will each have a new Android One device on store shelves in the coming weeks.
The Cherry One and the MyPhone Uno will be Android 5.1 Lollipop powered devices, with dual SIM and microSD card slots. Front and rear facing cameras will help users keep up with all the social trends and Google is happy to point out the battery saving and data saving features of Lollipop as benefits to users in the parts of the world, like the Philippines, that do not have power and data readily available for all.
Check out Google’s Asia Pacific focused blog post for all the details, including the fact that the Philippines is the sixth country to launch Android One devices. With more to come.
To all of our readers in the Philippines, are you excited for Android One, or do you already rock something a little bigger and better?
