Tablets are the must-have gadgets for the tech-savvy teens of today. They have a constant – and more importantly, immediate – need to surf the web, post status updates, upload the latest videos or pictures, and connect with a multitude of friends through real-time social media. Indeed, if “lifecasting” is the story of the digital age, then teenagers are its most prolific authors, and tablets are their chosen instrument.
Because of this growing trend, PLDT Telpad has strategically linked its innovative tablet landline service with the rising stars of Fame Factory, a company that aims to go “beyond artist management”. The PLDT Telpad is the world’s first tablet landline with unlimited local calls, unlimited internet, and exclusive PLDT content, such as the highly popular “TelMeHow” Application. “TelMeHow allows users to discover something wonderful at home, thanks to its highly informative yet easy-to-follow content,” remarked Patrick Tang, PLDT’s Vice President for Home Voice. “This content is meticulously designed in order to appeal to a vast array of interests, which is highly useful for today’s tech-savvy teen,” he further explained.
In terms of embodying the youthful spirit and wholesome pursuits of the tech-savvy teen, the Fame Factory talents truly make an ideal match. “In fact, it is likely that they will be used as models for new content for TelMeHow. Their unique abilities, communication skills, and natural enthusiasm opens up many opportunities,” Tang pointed out. “Abel Estanislao is a guitar protégé, while Kate Alejandro is a theater scholar with a strong background in the performing arts. Jake Señeres can talk about health and fitness, while Anika Gonzalez is a trained dancer. Finally, Rollo Espinos is a qualified culinary arts practitioner, so they can all TelmeHow to do something engaging and worthwhile.”
