Torque Mobile and the Rise of a Locally–Made Phone
The Philippines was once named as the World’s Texting Capital; and even if we do have marginal sectors, the poor still manage to get a mobile phone, load it up, and text all they want. Mobile phones have evolved and continue to, and people now enjoy more of its benefits aside from the basic texting and calling. But of course, not everybody could afford the high-end phones with all those new or improved features because they are priced too high. Now, with the Torque Mobile phones, getting what you need and what you want from your cellular need not destroy your wallet.
Torque Mobile, launched last December 2008, provides a wide array of cellular phones nicely made to fit the consumer’s budget. They are priced so reasonably that you’ll get shocked at what each phone unit offers. For one, for less than P 5,000, you get a stylish, doesn’t-look-cheap-but-it-is phone suited to match your needs. Plus, most of the units are dual SIM, and it’s unique because both your SIMs can be active – unlike the usual dual standby mode wherein you can only actively use one SIM at a time. Also, it has the necessary features like the large phonebook memory, Bluetooth connectivity, FM radio, MP3/MP4 player, a MicroSD memory card, and camera. You can even charge the phone through USB! Now that’s an awesome inexpensive mobile!
