After a year's hard work, it's time to reward yourself.
And Pinoy Big Brother 737 Teen big winner Jimboy Martin wishes to have a car this Christmas.
“Gusto ko po magkaroon ng kotse para hindi na ko nagta-taxi at para makaipon,” Jimboy told the press during the blessing and opening of the country’s first Huawei Experience Store at SM Cyberzone, SM Mall of Asia, in Pasay City last November 21.
Apart from the convenience of having a car (Christsmas season is just too toxic for commuters), the 17-year-old newbie from Nueva Vizcaya wishes for the joy of gathering his family in their own home.
“Gusto ko pong magsama-sama kaming pamilya sa prize kung mabibigay na, house and lot po,” said the member of It’s Showtime’s 12-member boy-group Hashtags.
WHAT'S YOURS? There will be Christmas parties and reunions, for sure, so admit it, WiFi is on top of your must-have list.
You have to be ready for those selfies and groufies...and be the first and fastest to post.
According to a study called Wave7, Pinoys spend 53 hours a week posting, reposting, and reading posts. That's 11 hours more than the total of global social media usage!
Hence, Huawei comes up with devices that will instantly make you the hostpot.
There's the Flash, which can provide internet connection to "ten WiFi enabled devices with download speeds of up to 150Mbps and upload speed of 50Mbps." Plus it can last to up to "five hours of WiFi usage and up to 300 hours in standby mode."
The Spark can get you connected in a jiffy, as in five seconds! It can last up to "six hours of continuous usage and a standby time of up to 300 hours."
The Lightning "offers wireless access for up to 32 devices," and supports peak download speeds of up to 150mbps and upload speed to 50Mbps.
In short, "connectivity and speed are much, much, much better," as Nino Carandang, business unit head for mobile broadband and wearables, put it especially that the network infrastructure in the Philippines was built by Huawei.
These three devices were launched at SM Mall of Asia's Cyberzone last Sunday, December 6, with Hotspot Hotties, who no doubt made the day for girls and gays!
And those who had selfies with the hotties, posted their shots on social media, and liked the brand's Facebook were given the chance to win a WiFi device.
Winners will be announced today, December 7.
