I was browsing the Sun Cellular web site a while ago to take a look at their Samsung Galaxy 5 free phone offer for unlimited call/text/surf plan for 999 pesos a month for my wife. I noticed something new. Apparently from the Sun Cellular web site, they are also offering the higher resolution and better looking Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 Android mobile phone for the same unlimited 999/month plan.
It’s been quite a while since I last posted some of the Android mobile phones that are locally available in the Philippines. You can find my other lists of Android phones here on my site. Since then several other Android cell phones have been released in the local market. Here’s my latest list of additional Android mobile phones that are now available locally.
More than 5 years ago, I had this crazyidea about how the future student would look like. Way back then, smartphones like Nokia are getting to be powerful enough to include an electronic book reader, wireless LAN access or wi-fi and high speed 3G internet acess. My vision was that students, instead of bringing around those big bags with wheels to carry their books, would just need to bring something like a pocketbook size touch screen computer. These pocketbook size touch screen computer will hold their books and notes and give them access to the “Internet library”.
