Starmobile: making Cebu and Filipinos more happy

Mobile phones particularly smartphones are quite pricey but more and more people wish to get one.

Enter a new player in the mobile phones industry ---Starmobile! A star is born!

Starmobile, a local maker of quality dual SIM mobile phones is now in Cebu offering to Cebuanos among other cellphone models, a mobile phone with the features of a smartphone but the price of an ordinary cellular phone. We know that many Filipinos carry more than one cellular number so a phone with dual SIM card capability is something many customers would want.

Carrying the Starmobile line currently is the new FeatureSmart T601i, the first of a series of mobile phones that incorporates the best features of a smartphone at an affordable price of P3,290. side from the dual sim capabilities, it has Wifi connectivity, Mobile TV, a 3.2 MP camera, built-in access to Facebook, Twitter and internet browsing via Opera Mobile. The screen is a responsive 3.5" capacitive touchscreen type, just like other smartphones.

Starmobile President Michael Chen talks about Starmobile being more than just a maker of mobile phones. "It is our vision to be the Filipinos' partner in jumpstarting dreams and aspirations." Having this type of phones is a dream come true for Cebuanos.

Starmobile also offers the first and only mobile phone with built-in Bluetooth headset in the Jupiter B305 which is perfect for people who are always on the go and is multitasking. Also with dual SIM capabilities, the Jupiter's design enables the wireless headset to slip onto its back.And the price? Just P2,990.

But there is more to come. Like a tablet coming soon with a relatively less expensive price of around 5,000 to 6,000 pesos. No wonder Vice Ganda is happy to endorse Starmobile to other Filipinos and so are Cebuanos who attended the Starmobile launch last July 28, 2012 at the Maya Taqueria and Tequila Lounge, Crossroads, Banilad, Cebu City.

"Vice Ganda represents the Pinoy Dreamer who is at the heart of the Starmobile's promising success story," says Consumer Marketing head Katrina Tioseco.

I am sure many Cebuanos and many Filipinos will be more happy that they have another available choice. Starmobile phones are available nationwide.

Megaworld's The Mactan Newtown: A New Community Soon to Rise

Following in the footsteps of Eastwood City, a new township is slowly taking shape in Mactan which will surely be a busy hub for the years to come.

Megaworld Corporations brings the magic of Eastwood in Mactan to Cebuanos in the form of the Mactan Newtown.

The Mactan Newtown is a live-work-play township which will soon provide Lapu-lapu City residents a new venue for living comfortably, working amidst a fresh environment and at the same time enjoying the amenities of a resort as well as a fantastic view.

Ladies and gentleman...the Mactan Newtown...
On the background is One World Center which will house the biggest McDonald's outlet as well as BPO offices.

Mactan Newtown will be a special economic zone with a size almost the same as Eastwood City. It is expected to provide many jobs mostly to those living nearby who don't need to go Cebu City already for work.

As seen above, the area is huge! It will have One World Center, Two World Center, a mall, a wellness center, condominium and residential areas and a resort if I remember correctly.

It will have a PUJ loading and unloading area. Some more roads will be opened for accessibility to the rest of the island. Several activities will be lined up including a mango festival. By the way, fruit-bearing mango trees line the biggest road (Newtwon Boulevard) traversing the "new town".

Concerts and other entertainment activities are also in store with international as well as popular local artists to be invited keeping Mactan Newtown a very lively town.

In the next 5 years, around 14 buildings are expected to be built. Indeed it will be a bustling community I am sure many people are looking forward to be part of.
