With mobile devices such as smartphones getting cheaper by the day, local brand Starmobile has made its products available in 7-Eleven convenience stores to make them more accessible to consumers.
?Mobile devices have become a commodity and Filipinos need a convenient place where they can purchase them,? said Starmobile president Ulysees Lao.
?No need to commute or pay for parking fees ? simply walk to the nearest participating 7-Eleven branch and go home with an awesome gadget,? he added.
A first in the Philippines, Starmobile products are currently available over-the-counter in select 7-Eleven branches in Metro Manila.
Included in the initial rollout are the Rotonda (Pasig City), One San Miguel, Avenue (Mandaluyong), National University, Far Eastern University, University of the East, and University of Santo Tomas branches.
Over 60 more stores nationwide will follow suit before the year ends.
?We hope that having our products available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week will prove useful especially during times of emergency,? said Lao.
?Whether you need a spare phone or you lost your primary unit due to flood, you no longer need to go to a mall just to keep connected,? he ended.
