Contest is over folks! I spent the weekend rummaging through hundreds of entries. After choosing one, I slept on it, thus furthering my resolve that this person indeed won the contest. Congratulations to Laurence San Pedro!
Why he won: After going through hundreds of entries, I was able to visualize Laurence San Pedro’s entry because of the cool image he attached as a Twitter card. Although this wasn’t a requirement in the contest, the extra effort paid off. It was the most unique way to present the answer to the contest question.
Congratulations Laurence San Pedro! We will be in touch so you can pick up the iPad from SMART Communications.
OK everything’s happening so fast so I decided to just post it in full here. I got this from Nick of SMART not via a press release but, well, via Facebook. Touche? Note: Globe and SUN Cellular are not part of this promo. The details are not final as SMART is still in the finishing touches with Facebook. If you don’t believe me, Engadget has their version up.
We never expected these to arrive in Philippine shores so fast, but yes, the Firefox OS phones are finally here c/o SMART Communications. Last month, Firefox OS was rumored to be unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2013 (that’s 2 days ago) and it appears that these rumors are true. The Firefox OS joins the mobile phone OS wars together with Android, BlackBerry 10, iOS, and Windows Phone 8.
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.
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.
