I’ve been a PLDT Home subscriber for years now and once in a while I’d receive phone calls from their agents offering upgrades. One of which they eagerly promote is the TelPad. To be honest, I would always politely decline because it isn’t something I think would interest me nor my family, given we already have our gadgets such as laptop, smart phone and tablet. But then I got a closer look at the newest PLDT Home Telpad and I have to say, it did change the way I feel about owning one as I learned that its now equipped with the powerful Quad Core processor.
How powerful? It actually lets you watch, listen and play. Luckily, I got first dibs on its features as I was invited to witness the unveiling of the PLDT Telpad Quad Core and its latest endorsers at Vyne Manila last April 3, 2014.
The moment we arrived at Vyne, I was enthralled with the table centrepieces. How apt that they were based from blockbuster movies. If there weren’t any title, I would’ve fairly guessed them all.
With Rowena of Animetric, Camille of The Soshal Network, Earth from Earthlingorgeous and yours truly. We couldn’t help but take a group photo just when the sun was about to set and well, because we’re early birds. Heehee.
To demonstrate how powerful the new PLDT Telpad Quad Core is, three stations were dedicated to let the guests that night experience its three new content pillars- watch, listen, play. Each guests got to try the different booths and got prizes to boot! It was definitely a fun (and competitive) way to get to know the Telpad even more.
First, we got to name that tune. The songs on the PLDT Telpad that we used were provided by Spinnr music.
OMG. I feel like I’m such a lola as I was listening to the songs. I know most of the lyrics and I was singing along, but I don’t know the title! Nonetheless, I was able to guess five songs in a minute. Not bad eh?
I like playing video games and one of the video games I like apart from RPG (role playing game) is racing. It’s something I know I’m good at so I was pretty ecstatic to show the inner racer girl in me at the Ready, Set, Go! station. Look at how I was so serious, concentrating on winning! Heehee.
I love how nice the Telpad’s graphics is. It works well as a control like that of a video console, effortlessly like the real thing. Also, navigation runs smooth which is always a good quality especially for
hard core video game players like me.
Patrick Tang, VP for PLDT Home Voice Solutions gladly shared that PLDT Telpad is now Quad Core. With this, it can handle multiple tasks at once, better graphics and enhanced functionality for the latest apps; giving way to an enriched multimedia and overall user experience. This is something I’m excited to know, why? Because as a social media enthusiast and addict, I know I need to multitask and having just one gadget to stay online, connected and updated isn’t gonna cut it. With the Telpad, I can use it for work and even use it to bond with my family as we like watching movies, playing games and even singing and dancing to the latest beats all at the comfort of our own home.
If you follow me on Instagram, you already got to know who are the newest endorsers of PLDT Telpad Quad Core.
Meet PLDT Telpad’s newest online ambassador #TeamKramer 🙂
Husband and wife tandem, Doug & Cheska Kramer, sans their kids, were introduced as the latest ambassadors of PLDT Telpad Quad Core. Remember the three stations where we were able to watch, listen and play? Another surprise was that the top three guests who had the best scores got to compete against Team Kramer.
It was definitely the highlight of the evening as both Dough & Cheska were so game to play against the best scored guests. Everyone was cheering, rooting and playing along with them.
Unahan portion kasi to give the correct answer so we were all competitive in giving it to our favored team.
