Local handset maker Cherry Mobile recently made history by releasing to the market the country’s first triple-SIM cellphone, the Trident.

This handset is aimed at those who juggle three handsets to make the most out of the offerings of the country’s three mobile carriers. So instead of buying and maintaining three handsets, Cherry Mobile makes this attractive proposition to chuck them all in favor of the Trident.

Smart and Globe are fighting over the title of having the “fastest mobile broadband service”. As they fight themselves in the media, I thought that perhaps its better to make my own study of the three competing mobile broadband products.

To do the tests, I made use of a Compaq Presario notebook computer running on Windows 7 Ultimate, a single openline Huawei E156C dongle/modem and a generic Mobile Partner software dialer to connect to the internet. I got the SmartBro SIM pack from a package I bought last August. I also bought a Sun Broadband Wireless prepaid SIM SIM pack for P50 and a Globe Tattoo SIM pack for P40.

[UPDATE: Digital PADEPA has moved to a new address]

National democratic activists have brought their school to the worldwide web.

PADEPA, short for Pambansa Demokratikong Paaralan (National Democratic School) has gone online with Digital PADEPA, making its courses available to activists and activist organizations who have long wanted to have obtain reference and teaching materials for political and ideological study online.

Samsung has become the first major international phone manufacturer to introduce a dual-SIM handset in the Philippine market. Two new companies have earlier introduced their own dual-SIM phones but they have yet to catch the attention of brand-conscious Filipinos.

The D880 is comparable with the classic D900 in terms of size and built. It is slightly bigger and thicker than most phones nowadays but that is a small price to pay for having a dual-SIM phone.
