The 3rd good news related to the Android One launch yesterday is finally official. The Cherry Mobile One is Smart’s choice for its first Android One smartphone in its Postpaid lineup.
Smart will be offering this smartphone through their All-In Plan 500. This kind of plan lets the subscriber select service bundles that will fit his needs. It isn’t available as of the moment, but you can register through this link: http://smart.com.ph/pages/android-one.
I was also informed by Smart that the Cherry Mobile One will also be offered through a new Smart Plan 499. This new plan will have the following:
- 1.5GB Mobile Internet
- 200 MB allocated for app downloads/updates via Play Store (first 6 mos. upon activation)
- 100 MB allocated for Android OS updates (first 6 mos. upon activation)
- Php 100 consumable for calls and texts.
I’ll announce it here once the new Plan 499 is already available.
