PLDT's TVolution Stick will be available for free on Home DSL and Fibr plans
PLDT has partnered up with Intel to launch the TVolution Stick, which is based on Intel's own Compute Stick. It's a fully operational computer that's the size of a pocketable dongle and connects to your monitor or television through an HDMI port. With it, you'll be able to stream from PLDT's iflix service, play light games, surf the web, watch movies, and do pretty much anything that's possible on a regular desktop PC.
This is made possible with the device's built-in WIndows 8.1 OS, which can be upgraded to Windows 10 until next year, as well as an Intel Atom processor with Intel HD Graphics. Here's the complete list of specs:
- Intel Atom Z3735F quad-core processor
- 2GB RAM
- 32GB internal storage
- MicroSD support
- Multi-channel audio
- HDMI 1.4a and USB 2.0 ports
- Wi-Fi b/g/n
- Bluetooth 4.0
- Windows 8.1 (upgradeable to Windows 10)
The TVolution Stick will be available beginning this Sunday, October 11. A special promo is also going on until November 30, wherein new subscribers of DSL Plans 999 and up, as well as new Fibr subscribers, who apply online, can get the TVolution Stick for free. If you're upgrading to a more expensive plan, you're also entitled to receiving the handheld computer. And if you don't plan on upgrading but simply want the TVolution stick, then you can buy it separately through PLDT. Details on that will be made available on www.pldthome.com by next week.
