Starmobile pushes new innovations-A A +A
Thursday, December 12, 2013
NEARLY a million strong and growing, Philippine smartphone maker Starmobile trailblazes the mobile takeover with a 4th quarter Android roll-out developed for today's always-on, hyperconnected generation.
"The future is mobile," says Starmobile President Michael Chen. "Starmobile is right on pulse and leading the charge to make high tech available to everyone. Today, we share the good news that Starmobile aims to touch one million Filipinos by the end of the year, their lives bettered and made brighter by quality mobile phones and tablets at prices within reach."
From five stores and kiosks in December 2012, the local startup has now expanded its reach to 45 stores and kiosks plus over 900 other partner resellers, offering Filipinos nationwide the Starmobile gold standard of product excellence, user experience and customer care.
All new Android marvels
Starmobile's strong and competitive product line expands to include 12 more Android devices: 3 smartphones, 5 phablets to beef up the current Starmobile Diamond series and 4 tablets to complement its bestselling Engage line.
Hot on the heels of the bestselling Starmobile Knight comes its co-flagship selfie smartphone-the Starmobile Muse, a 5" Android Jelly Bean phone with 18-megapixel back and 8-megapixel front BSI camera combo. First ever in the Philippines to sport a wide-angle front-facing camera equipped with LED flash, the Starmobile Muse is perfect for capturing group selfies-a nod to Starmobile's growing camera imaging reputation. The Muse runs on a 1.5GHz Turbo Quad Core processor and is topped with a gorgeous full HD screen for only P12,990, available in white and black.
Advanced mobile users upgrading to larger screens also have more phablet choices with the new additions to the Starmobile Diamond Series. The 5" Diamond D1 promises no downtime with a 3000mAh battery reliable up to 16 days standby time. Lightweight and light on the pocket, the Starmobile Diamond D1 keeps slim with a 10.3mm body at an affordable P7,990.
Starmobile also goes big on style with the beautifully contoured Diamond S1 with curved edge 5" glass display. Its scratch-resistant Asahi Glass tapers nicely into the matte black rear cover, giving you tried-and-tested toughness in an exquisite form for only P8,990 with colored red and yellow casing options.
Starmobile goes into next generation design with a redefined look for the Engage Series. Crafted with a solid and beautiful aluminum body, the latest Engage tablets impress with sleek and speed. Leading the tablet pack is the Quad Core Engage 8 3G with high speed HSPA+ connectivity that delivers a full on tablet experience for only P9,990. The quad core WiFi-only option is also available for only P6,990.
Innovative Inside Out
The stellar feat continues with the unveiling of Starmobile Sync-a free, easy-to-use, proprietary Starmobile application which comes pre-installed in all newly released smartphones and 8-inch tablets.
Starmobile Sync works to enable feature phone and non-Starmobile smartphone users to seamlessly transfers their contacts, calendar entries, text messages, and more in a few easy steps. "Through Bluetooth connectivity, the Starmobile Sync allows quick transfer and migration to Starmobile from other brands or devices-really fastracking the rush or the migration to Starmobile. We're confident that with the Starmobile Sync, we will be able to achieve our one million mark this year," adds Michael.
It is in this relentless drive to innovate and create value through mobility that Starmobile looks to build off its success. "We are very proud of what our local team of product engineers has been able to achieve with these devices," shares Michael. "Truly, the future is bright and golden for Starmobile."
