Prestigio, a new entrant to the Philippines’ fun and very competitive smartphone market, is offering a Windows Phone 8.1 smartphone – the MultiPhone 8500 Duo.

Its key features include a 5-inch HD screen covered in scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass, quad core processor, 8MP camera and a whole gigabyte of RAM all for ₱9,099.00.

It’s nice that another vendor is selling Windows powered smartphones here in the Philippines. So far, only Cherry Mobile has introduced a Windows phone among the country’s homegrown brands.

The Prestigio MultiPhone 8500 Duo’s 8MP rear camera is complimented by a 2MP snapper on the front to handle selfies and video calling.
