“JUMP” into the future


Your futuristic utopia comes alive in PLDT and Smart’s Jump experience center at SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City. The top-of-the-line hub features the latest devices, services and technologies.

Located in one of the busiest malls in the Metro, it will be a place for the ultimate digital and mobile lifestyle of customers whether for home, work or leisure. PLDT President and CEO Napoleon L. Nazareno says that “it showcases how PLDT and Smart are working together to offer customers the best possible services.”

New and upcoming gadgets like the new PLDT Telpad, Apple iPad2, Blackberry PlayBook, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and the NFC-enabled Nokia C7 are also present on the Jump experience center.

Powering these devices are PLDT’s Fiber to the Home and Smart’s WiMAX and HSPA+ connectivity — the fastest wired and wireless Internet connections available in the Philippines. Just like the gadgets, visitors are free to try out these services even with their own devices.

“If you’re on the lookout for the latest gadgets or if you simply want to test the latest services that have piqued your interest, Jump is the place to go to,” said Orlando B. Vea, Smart’s chief wireless advisor. “We will constantly upgrade our equipment and our facilities so that we can treat our customers to the latest and the best, each and every time.”

Also located within the premises are three gigantic touchscreen displays. The first is the ‘Jump Screen’ where visitors can make their own dancing avatars. The second is used in the ‘Jump Springboard’ lecture room as an interactive way of learning for customers. The third and largest is called ‘Jump Panorama’ and is found at the heart of Jump.

At 82 inches, Jump Panorama is one of the largest multi-touchscreen displays in the Philippines. It is an interactive screen featuring various products and services of PLDT and Smart and how they play an integral part in the life and lifestyle of each member of the typical Filipino family.

Another innovation found in Jump are two units of multi-touch screens capable of accommodating 32 fingers — equivalent to 4 people simultaneously using it. Using these, Jump visitors may play games with their friends and know more about PLDT and Smart activities in the interactive presentation of the ‘Jump World’.When the Jump Panorama is not playing this interactive video, it may also be used to give Jump visitors a ‘supersized’ feel of the latest touchscreen devices, from phones to tablets.
