Smart offers Nexus 7 for Php14.4k on WiFi Plan 599

Smart has posted an announcement for the pre-order date of the Google Nexus 7. The telco will start accepting subscribers on November 30 and will ask them to sign-up for SmartBro FlexiSurf Pocket WiFi Plan 599.

Once signed up for FlexiSurf WiFi Plan 599 (50 hours per month), you will be able to get the Nexus 7 for only Php600 per month for 24 months at 0% interest. That puts the price of the Nexus 7 at Php14,400.

This is the 32GB WiFi model we reported to you earlier here. While the tablet is unlocked, you are tied up to the data plan for 24 months.

“From November 30, 2012, you can pre-order the Nexus 7 from flexisurf.smart.com.ph,” said Smart Broadband Internet and Data Services head Lloyd Manaloto.

“Simply sign up for a Smart Bro Flexisurf Pocket WiFi plan 599 and you can own this amazing tablet at 0% interest for just P600 a month for 24 months—even without credit card,” Manaloto said.

So, your total cash-out is basically Php1,199 per month for 24 months.

No word from Smart when they will offer the 3G model but my sources from Asus tell me it’s going to be in 1st quarter of 2013.

The 32GB Nexus 7 is also being sold in retail stores for Php13,995.

    Wait so this comes with a pocket wifi access point? How much data will I get?

    Would’ve been nice if it’s a 3G model, so you wouldn’t have to bring a pocket wifi.

    Ang maganda sa deal ay makaka-avail ang walang credit card ng 0% installment.

    That’s actually their selling point, getting it on installment basis 0% interest (for non-credit card holders at least). The catch is, of course, you are obliged to sign up to their plan. But for me hindi pa din sulit. Kung ginawa nila half the price yung Nexus 7 baka pwede pa. I’d rather wait for 0% installment on card without any lock-in period.

    HI abe, your rss feed is not working. latest article is still last nov 15.

  8. smartglobe says:

    I’d rather get sun wifi. It’s only 350p with 60hrs of internet. Best of all, no lock-in period. It would have been nice if Smart offered the Nexus at half the price with 599 broadband plan.

    Sir Abe, please re-check your rss feed. It was not working for couple days. I did not receive your reviews since november 16 till now, november 23. Thanks.

  10. cmas says:

    Just like tordj and gust said, i am also not receiving any updates from you rss feed since nov 15..

  11. H says:

    post ko ulit. hindi rin nag-a-update ang yugatech meego app sa nokia N9.

  12. Cxian says:

    Hmn. bringing another tool such as pocket wifi is very inconvenient and uneconomical.

    If you have an Android phone, just connect to data and activate wifi hotspot and you’re good to go.

    ang boring naman nitong promo

  14. J says:

    anu ung mga requirements para makakuha po?

  15. arvinsim says:

    Is it me or talagang mataas ang criteria nila para ma approve sa plan na ito?

  16. J says:

    Hi! Just want to share a horrible experience I have from the worst service ever I got from Smart. Last December of 2012, I applied for a smart bro/pocket wifi + nexus 7 bundle . I brought with me all the required documents you can think of including my bank statement since I am already aware that they me require it as well. So there’s this CSR (Ms. Dang of Smart Wireless Center Gateway Mall) who assisted me with the application and told me that I can get the bundle on the very same day since I provided all the required documents and that there’s available stock at that time. Hours of waiting while the CSR surprisingly told me that they cannot release the bundle since there’s no available Smart Bro SIM card. (I don’t F***ING understand why it took her more than an hour to figure out if there’s an available Smart Bro SIM card or none). She then gave me their USELESS contact number and told me that I can text them for update/s since they are not sure when the Smart Bro SIM cards become available. And so I leave empty-handed.
    Days past and I’ve been texting them almost everyday and NOT getting any reply at all.
    I dropped by to their center from time to time and was just told the same BUL*SH*T! (there’s no available Smart Bro SIM card as of the moment. Not sure of the next delivery). And so I decided to submit another application (this time at Smart Wireless Center SM North Edsa). I was assisted by Ms. Donna. The same drill goes (submitting req’d docs and hours of waiting). And so there comes the good news. Good News is they have an available Smart Bro SIM card and Nexus 7 unit. The BAD news is they don’t have an available pocket wifi device as of the moment (WHAT THE F***!). And so I ask if it’s possible to forward their Smart Bro SIM card to their branch at the Gateway Mall (NOT POSSIBLE). So here we go again! She then gave me their contact number and told me that I can text them for update/s since they are not sure when the pocket wifi devices become available. And so I leave empty-handed for the second time around. The good thing about Ms. Donna is that she’s replying to most of my update inquiry via SMS. The SADDEST part was that it took more than 2 MONTHS until I receive the GOOD NEWS (from Ms Donna of Smart SM N.Edsa) that the bundle is now ready for pick-up anytime. TOO BAD I WAS NO LONGER INTERESTED TO AVAIL THE BUNDLE SINCE I ALREADY BOUGHT MY OWN NEXUS 7.

    By the way, I’m not sure what happend to Ms. Dang of Smart Gateway as to why she’s not replying to my previous SMS during the painful and agonizing waiting period. I hope she’s still alive. ;p
