How much would an iPhone 5 LTE cost in the Philippines?

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: September 9, 2012

The Apple iPhone 5 is set to be announced next week (Wednesday, September 12) and the WSJ reports that it will be LTE-capable. While we are excited that we might also be experiencing super-fast 100Mbps mobile internet speeds, we're also worried how much it will cost. So we're basing this speculation on existing plans and data that we currently have with the telcos. For one, only Smart has commercial offering for LTE so we'll stick with its pricing plan at the moment. Smart LTE Plan 3500 This plan is Php3,500 per month for 10GB. Free device worth Php8,000. Extra 1GB…

How much should music cost?

Relevance: 97%      Posted on: October 15, 2007

After my talk at the SEMCON last week, I was approached by several attendees to discuss several stuff. One of the topics included the state of online music store in the Philippines. The main question I was trying to answer was -- How much should music cost? Well, we already know Apple set the universal trend of $0.99 per song but other players like AmazonMP3 are challenging that. Still, the notion that you'll have to shell out Php45 a pop for your mp3 seemed insane in the Philippine internet landscape. For over a decade, the majority of Filipinos got their…

Contract-Free iPhone 3G to cost $599 at AT&T

Relevance: 90%      Posted on: July 1, 2008

Apparently, the iPhone can still be bought without the required 24-month contract with AT&T. A recent press release from AT& reveals the iPhone 3G to be priced at $599 for the 8GB and $699 for the 16GB. These contract-free prices seemed like the same prices when the first iPhone went out. Sold or not sold? At the current pero-dollar exchange rate of Php45:$1, that's around Php27,000 for the 8GB and Php31,500 for the 16GB. Looks like I was close with the earlier price tag of Php34,000. Add to that additional factors such as tariffs and VAT, then we're not very…

Jakarta’s WiFi Village

Relevance: 89%      Posted on: December 8, 2006

We have a short meetup with Filipina blogger Armina at the Plaza Senayan the other day along with her husband Yuda and 2 kids. Her husband mentioned that they were employing a wifi village arrangement in their area. Since broadband is still expensive here in Indonesia, what he did was signed up for a SoHo (Small Office, Home Office) package from the ISP. It cost him about 2 Million Rupiahs (roughly Php11,000) a month and the connection speed were just in the hundreds of Kbps. However, since the SoHo package allows the subscriber of up to 40 workstations connected to…

Relevance: 86%      Posted on: March 9, 2012

Yesterday, PLDT and Intel held a joint event to present a partnership for the PLDT WiFi Zone and the Intel-powered ultrabooks. They didn't really share anything concrete plans bewteen the two brands but it was an opporunity for me to ask a lingering question -- can paid public WiFi still survive in this time of cheap mobile internet and free public WiFi? The PLDT WiFi Zone was first introduced sometime in December with regional pocket launches in Cebu (during Sinulog) and in Baguio (during Penagbenga). PLDT WiFi Zone speed test. Prior to this, Smart Bro also offered a similar WiFi

According to a reliable source close to Samsung Philippines, the company will be releasing a WiFi-only version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab in the Philippines this quarter. That means a more affordable Galaxy Tab will be available in local stores before the end of March 2011. The indicative price, according to our source, is within the vicinity of Php25,000. Not bad but still a bit more expensive by a couple of thousand pesos compared to the entry-level iPad WiFi.

I wonder why Nokia Philippines isn't offering this to other WiFi-capable NSeries phones but they keep on giving away free wifi from Airborne Access to owners of Nokia E66 and E71. Owners of Nokia ESeries phones will be happy to learn they could hook up their phones in any Airborne Access hotspots nationwide: Starting October 6, 2008 until December 31, 2008, consumers who purchase the Nokia E71 and Nokia E66 devices will be given 2 months free instant Internet access at all Airborne Access Wi-Fi hotspots. Not only that, every week, the user with the most number of logins into…

(blogging from BlueWave Mall, Macapagal Avenue, Pasay City) Bluewave has this serve-serve Wifi kiosk provided by Wizard Kiosk. This is the 3rd public wifi service aside from Globe WiZ and Airborne Access I know of. This one though is only found and available here at the Bluewave Mall along Macapagal highway in Pasay. Basically, there's a touch-screen kiosk located just behind Pizza Hut where you can buy wifi tickets. There are 3 access points covering the entire Bluewave area so you can access the wifi from all restaurants and shops in the mall. I haven't tried it though so I…

Poll: How much should a PH domain cost?

Relevance: 80%      Posted on: January 17, 2008

Since we're still on the subject of the PH domain pricing, I thought a poll from our readers here is in order. Andre left a good point in the comments. As a PH reseller, I once contemplated on heavily investing in the domains and sell it the sub-Php1,000 range. So our poll question is, how much should the PH domain cost that will convince you to buy? I limited the choices from Php600 to Php1,200. If the results are reasonable, I might get some investors and push this thru. The premise is that, dotPH pricing will remain the same at…

We reported last month that Samsung Philippines will release a WiFi-only variant of their 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab. Turns out the tablet is already here in the Philippines and selling at a discounted price of just Php16,990. Two weeks ago, Samsung jumped the gun and dropped the suggested retail price of the 3G variant of the Galaxy Tab down to Php21,990. The sale happens in all Samsung retailers from April 1 to 17 only. Just asked for the WiFi-only variant if you want to get it at a much cheaper price (that's around Php3k cheaper than the 1st gen iPad).
