Another player in the country’s mobile industry has invaded Cebu when it launched, through an exclusive event last week, two of its “game-changer” devices — the Starmobile FeatureSmart T601i and Starmobile Jupiter B305. Before we get into the details of these handsets, allow me to talk about a brief intro about Starmobile.
A quick visit to the company’s official website reveals Starmobile as a local phone maker established by Star Telecom Alliance Resources (STAR, Inc.), a group of telecommunications industry experts based locally and internationally. Starmobile is headquartered in Manila and claims as a maker of quality dual-SIM mobile phones. So basically, it appears that the company will focus in releasing phones with dual-SIM capability, going neck and neck, if not beat direct competitors like Cherry Mobile, MyPhone, or even with the likes of Nokia which has a stronghold of the dual-SIM phone market.
The FeatureSmart T601i
At first glance, you couldn’t expect the FeatureSmart T601i as a feature phone as it really looks like an Android-powered smartphone. It’s a dual-SIM capable, thus it’s a perfect phone if you want to carry 2 SIM cards in a single phone. The T601i features a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen display, support for Wi-Fi connectivity, and Mobile TV. The 3.2MP camera may complement your social networking experience as the phone has a built-in access to Facebook and Twitter. (more…)
