Asus Transformer Book T100 Smart Bro Gadget Plus Postpaid Plan Bundle Now Available

I think the coolest thing about Asus Transformer Book T100 is that it is practically two devices in one. You get a tablet running the Pro version of Windows 8.1 and a full-fledged laptop with chiclet-style keys and a large trackpad -- making it an ideal device not just for multimedia consumption but also for content creation.

Now available under Smart Bro’s Gadget Plus Plan 1,299, the groundbreaking Asus Transformer Book T100 combines the best of multimedia entertainment on a tablet with the productivity afforded by a full-fledged laptop.

"Increasingly, we are seeing users adopting the so-called ‘multi-gadgeted lifestyle,’ where they bring around two to three mobile devices wherever they go," shared Michele Curran, Data and International Services Marketing Head at Smart Communications, the Philippines' largest mobile network. Smart Broadband, Inc. (Smart Bro) is a subsidiary of Smart.

"Smart Bro combines the flexibility of the Asus Transformer Book T100 with its unparalleled mobile broadband service to empower multiple gadget users with the best mobile experience possible," Curran added.

The Asus Transformer Book T100 comes with a 10-inch tablet that can easily be connected to a dock with a full-sized keyboard, offering the convenience of quickly shifting from play mode with the tablet to work mode when combined with the dock. And with Windows 8 and Microsoft Office built-in, this latest addition to Smart Bro’s expanding gadget lineup provides a powerful platform that allows users to have fun with their tablet and still be productive even while on the go.

Specs-wise, the T100 - with dimensions of 263 mm x 171 mm x 10.5 mm for the tablet and weighing 1.07 kilograms with the keyboard dock - is powered by Intel Bay Trail processor and has Intel Gen7 Graphics DirectX 11 graphics. The hybrid device comes replete with a 10.1-inch 1366 x 768 pixels resolution capacitive touchscreen display, 32 GB eMMC storage, 2 GB of RAM, and 11 hours of battery life.

The Asus Transformer Book T100 is just the latest in the ever-expanding list of gadgets available under Smart Bro’s Gadget Plus Plans, which enable users to get their hands on the latest mobile devices without the need for a credit card.

Payable over 24 months under Plan 1299, this latest offering provides 50 hours of Internet surfing every month via a Smart Bro Pocket WiFi device with speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps. This comes with the standard Anti-Bill Shock Guarantee that activates automatically, which means subscribers wouldn’t have to pay more than Php 1,899 on their monthly bills.

With more than 10,000 4G-capable sites (HSPA+, LTE and LTE-Advanced) nationwide, Smart provides the most reliable and high-speed mobile broadband service in the Philippines with up to 42 Mbps of LTE speeds.

The telco recently completed a combined 150-kilometer undersea fiber-optic project in Bohol, bringing its total fiber footprint to 78,000 kilometers nationwide, providing four times more fiber power than any other provider in the country today.

To apply for the Asus Transformer Book T100 under Smart Bro’s Gadget Plus Plan 1299, interested individuals simply need to proceed to selected Smart Stores nationwide or order from the Smart Online Store. The device is also available under Plan 999 with a Php 6,000 initial cash-out upon application.
