We owe it to them to constantly push boundaries in telecommunications and content development to create a new, happy, and hopeful mobile lifestyle.”
Proof of the brand’s early success is seen as there are currently more than 100 Starmobile partner resellers located in Cebu’s main shopping locations. “We’ve set our eyes on Cebu from the very start. This city has long been known for harnessing local talent and brands that successfully compete internationally—the same objective that Starmobile sincerely shares,” says Michael.
Meet the Game Changers
Thanks to its clever combination of innovation and style, Starmobile lives up to its promise of top-of-the-line craftsmanship with its full range of dual SIM mobile phones that also offer 12 months warranty on parts and services.
Leading the pack is the new FeatureSmart™ T601i—the first of a series of mobile phones that utilizes the best features of a smartphone at an unbeatable value that has never been seen before. With dual SIM capabilities, ultra responsive 3.5” capacitive touchscreen, WIFI connectivity, and Mobile TV, the FeatureSmart T601i provides a dynamic and immersive user experience. Boasting of the look and feel of mainstream smartphones, a 3.2MP camera, plus built-in access to Facebook, Twitter, and Internet browsing via Opera Mobile, the T601i is designed to delight at only P3,290.
Also found in the T601i is exclusive mobile content only for Starmobile users: Inquirer.net and Job Market Online. This first of its kind partnership pioneered by Starmobile and Inquirer Digital provides Filipinos with built-in and real time access to news and job alerts.

The wireless headset is cleverly designed to slip onto the back of the Jupiter B305, which also boasts of dual SIM and triband capabilities, 3MP camera, and comes in popular automobile colors of blue and orange.
“Our team noticed how Bluetooth headsets are, on one hand, very convenient for hands-free chatting on your phone but on the other hand, also very inconvenient because it tends to be lost or forgotten,” shares Michael. The clever design of the Jupiter B305 eliminates this problem and also automatically charges the headset while attached onto the back of the phone.
Perfect for multi-tasking professionals, the Jupiter B305 also has the built-in access to Facebook and use Opera Mini for Internet browsing.
