Telecoms leader Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) and wholly-owned subsidiary Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) opened the country’s first “Jump” experience center at SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City. It will showcase the PLDT Group’s latest devices, services, and technologies.

Jump is the latest Experience Center built to offer customers the new phase of communication – a bold shift from the usual retail center to a cutting-edge display of convergence and innovation. It is also designed to cater to your mobile, internet, home and business needs.

“At Jump, you will find the newest, coolest gadgets and services that we have to offer to serve the digital and mobile lifestyles of our customers at home, work, and leisure,” said PLDT President and CEO Napoleon L. Nazareno. “It showcases how PLDT and Smart are working together to offer customers the best possible service.”

Various items on display at Jump are the newest products for the 21st-century Filipino home, such as the new PLDT Telpad and the latest smartphones and tablets. Jump also features handsets and devices that have yet to come out in the market and that will work best when powered by Smart’s nationwide network. Powering these devices are PLDT’s Fiber to the Home and Smart’s WiMAX and HSPA+ connectivity.

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 or 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’.

Jump will definitely change the way you experience tomorrow’s technology today.
