    in you guy's perspective.. how's android and ios popularity in PI nowadays compare to WP?... Would you revert back to Android or iOS after giving a WP a good run in the matter of say... 6 months? or go DUO.. meaning rocking with 2 completely different handset ... Android / WP ... iOS / WP ... you get the idea.. reason I ask is coz i'm currently rocking Android and WP at the moment (not that you care lol).. Never really a fan of iOS or BB (although i've tried them all)... I like having them around for some odd reason... gives me best of both world experience.
    I think Android is still on top then iOS but WP is gaining popularity. I do have an Android phone just in case I need to use an app ( e.g Acrobits SIP ) not currently available in WP (but its coming soon). But my main driver is my Lumia 920 and there's no going back for me. Android now is like the phone for the "masa" where everyone has it. No identity, no pure innovation only improvements (octa core etc..), unnecessary spec wars, copyright infringement and patent disputes. But the main reason I'm sticking with WP is definitely because of Nokia.

    That makes a lot of sense. I know Nokia is trying to push low cost phones like the 520 out there and other markets. But it doesn't help WP much if it's only Nokia doing the work. WP needs other manufacturers like HTC and Samsung to push low cost WPs in these markets.

    It would help if telcos like Smart and Globe could improve their networks. I can't believe how slow internet is out there. I've read somewhere that out of 100M+ Filipinos only about 6M are connected to the internet.

    Whenever I'm there I find myself looking for coffee shops so I can use the WiFi.

    I do like the Nokia stores in PI. I wish they had some here.

    We had PLDT internet installed at our house in Cavite and as far as I know max speed is 2mbps. So sloooow... I think the whole nation needs to do a major rebuild of their internet infrastructure.

    The government needs to intervene and regulate those Telco. Force them to upgrade their infrastructure before approving any rate increase.

    Philippines.

    There is no Xbox Music support for Philippines.

    Many other regions are not supported with the new Bing. It's server based, so it'll roll out to us soon.

    If you're talking about mobile connectivity, I'm one who is dependent on it. I don't have fixed connection at home (I'm not there most of the time anyway) so I rely on my data plans. I have two subscriptions with Smart, both Mensa 2000. However, one is LTE and the other one is not. I use the Xperia V for the LTE subscription and HTC 8S for the 3.5G.

    As far as LTE of Smart is concerned, I can't complain. It's available on most places I go to, I get download speed of up to 32Mbps and averages 10Mbps (which is pathetic by Korea standards). For Smart 3G, it's pretty bad. 6Mbps on a blue moon, but averages 1Mbps downstream.

    Hindi ko kailangan maki-amot ng libren Wi-Fi.

    Wow awesome to see a pinoy gathering going on in these forums. Whenever family goes there, we stay in Cubao, Quezon City. I was born and raised in London though. Currently living in London too

    This thread makes me happy! I live in Florida, USA now, but I was born on Clark Air Force Base and lived in Pampanga until I was about 2. I still have a ton of family that lives there, but I haven't been since about 2002 or 2003. I'd love to go back and visit!
