SMART accepting iPhone 5 preorders for December 14 launch


Hello Apple geeks. Well it’s finally here. The iPhone 5 will be available on December 14 2012. I’ve been with SMART for almost 10 years so that’s why I’m endorsing their bid for the iPhone 5 (or any phone that relies heavily on a data plan). Remember, the phone is only half the product.

I’m hoping that they release the LTE versions of the iPhone 5 locally and it would make sense to do so as SMART comes with the tri-band frequency that is compatible with the iPhone 5’s LTE chip. In any case, RESERVE NOW.

Grab a Google Nexus 7 with a SMART Communciations FlexiSurf Plan

The highly coveted Google Nexus 7 Android tablet can be yours with SMART Communications’ new FlexiSurf plans. If you’re looking for a way to offload your gadget costs for the next year, this is definitely a deal to consider.

To avail the Google Nexus 7, you will need to shell out PHP 600.00 for 24 months with FlexiSurf 599 (0% interest). That’s essentially about PHP 1,199 a month if you can’t afford to put out USD $199 for the tablet. For surfing, you also get a Smart Bro FlexiSurf Pocket WiFi device which you can also use to connect to the Internet. So imagine, for 2013 you’ll be all rigged up with a Pocket WiFi to connect your new Nexus 7 tablet, your smartphone, and perhaps another WiFi device, such as a Playstation Vita that only sells for about PHP 9,950.00 cash from Datablitz.

Definitely a good deal. Sign up here to apply:

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.
