Mostly Everything

Second Netphone is a Samsung Galaxy Y. Free at Data Lite Plan 500 and All-in Plan 800. Only from SMART.

The cat is out of the bag.

The bag is really big and we have several cats inside.

There’s a bag and this is the second cat.

In the absence of a catchy introduction, we present to you the second Netphone model. The first Netphone which gained global attention was a rebranded ZTE Blade, donned as the Netphone 701. For those of you who were really interested about the SmarNet platform but wanted a different phone model, SMART now has the Samsung Galaxy Y running on SmartNet. It is free on the following plans:

Data Lite Plan 500
All-in Plan 800
Prepaid Kit: PHP 5,990 (insane OMG!!!)

You can preorder starting now, from October 1 to October 14 2011.


The Samsung Galaxy Y is a good entry level phone running on Android 2.3. Announced during the middle of this year, the phone will be out by the end of this year. SMART was able to install their SmartNet platform on top of it. So, if you’re looking for a more up to date Android device from Samsung and SMART, this is definitely something to look forward to.

The launch of the second Netphone from Samsung reinforces the SmartNet ubiquity of being more than just one phone. Netphone is here to stay and this is only the beginning.

This is really good news for Pinoys who want to experience SmartNet with an affordable device. Sana mag release pa sila ng iba pang handset in this price range.

Yes Galaxy Y can edit and view ms word. because it has a 832MB of ram its decent in this kind.. you only have to download a App from the android market to view MS word file,presentation and pdf and many more.. hope it helps..

but for this low end cellphone.. well i would not trade it for my Google Nexus.. it may be not a stronger smartphone in the lines of samsung, but for a 1st time handler of smart phone. its ok..
