Globe Cloudfone Ice – another affordable Android phone in the Philippines


I thought the Samsung Galaxy Y is the cheapest Android phone in the Philippines to date and I was wrong. I was Googling around  and found that Globe Telecom Philippines has this  Android phone Cloudfone Ice U8500 by Huawei. http://topkitch.net/white-kitchen-cabinets.html

      what do you mean? Only the storage can be expanded via microSD and you can move your apps to your external storage using app2SD app.

      I think this phone is exclusive for globe as it carries the branding “CloudFon” but its real model is 
      Huawei 8500 Froyo.
