The cute Nokia Asha 306 looks almost identical to its slightly more affordable brother, the Nokia Asha 305 -- but the former has an important connectivity feature that the latter doesn't.

Priced at only Php 4,250, Nokia Asha 306 is one of the more affordable handsets from a reliable brand that's Wifi-enabled. Supporting such connection means that the phone lets users enjoy quick access to online content and to popular social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter in free Wifi zones, which are almost everywhere.

But that's hardly the only thing that makes this phone special.

Nokia Asha 306, like the Dual SIM Nokia Asha 305, runs Nokia's revamped, touch-optimized S40 operating system called Touch Asha. What's hot about this OS is that - aside from the fact that it's both easy to navigate and easy on the eyes - it comes with Nokia Browser 2.0, which - as explained on TP - uses cloud technology to reduce data usage by up to 90% and in the process makes web pages load faster, improves battery life, and lowers mobile data charges.

Made for young consumers, Nokia Asha 306 comes with a slew of multimedia features that will surely entertain even the most active user. There's a 2 MegaPixel camera, a video recorder, FM radio, music player, and free EA (Electronic Arts) Games Package including 40 of its best-selling titles like Need for Speed, Bejeweled, and Fifa 2012. And should users want even more games and other applications, they can always drop Nokia Store a visit.

Social networking is totally the in thing these days and Nokia Asha 306 users will be glad to know that their phone comes with Facebook and Twitter applications that are made specifically for Asha Touch. These apps make it easier to browse content and to update status message on these popular sites.

Mark Caguioa Named PBA MVP 2012, Reads Acceptance Speech on an Apple iPad!

Posted: 02 Aug 2012 03:07 PM PDT

It appears one of the Philippines' biggest sports superstars is also rather tech-savvy.

Last Sunday, after being named Philippine Basketball Association's Most Valuable Player for this year, Ginebra shooting guard Mark Caguioa turned to an Apple tablet to read his acceptance speech.

Spotted! Mark "The Spark" Caguioa with an iPad! Not sure if it's the 2nd Generation or the 3rd generation slate as both look identical from the back. Maybe we should ask him on Twitter.

Anyway, I've taken the liberty of transcribing his speech (because I'm a hardcore Ginebra fan like that - from Jaworski to Marlou Aquino and Bal David in the 90's and now, the Helterbrand-Caguiao days), here you go:

"Maraming salamat sa inyong lahat.

First and foremost, I would like to thank the Lord. I would like to thank the press and the media, and the PBA commissioner for this award. I would to thank the Ginebra San Miguel management and the coaching staff, and especially, my teammates for making this possible.

And to the fans, I wanna say thank you for the inspiration you give me to play every game; You make me proud to wear the Ginebra jersey. Thank you for making this moment in my career in the PBA unforgettable.

[Tagalong naman ah:] At nais kong pasalamatan ang mga taong bumoto sa akin at ang mga fans na walang sawa sa pagsuporta sa career ko at hindi nawalan ng pag-asa na makamit ang award na ito na matagal nang inaasam-asam ng lahat. At sa inyong palakpakan at sigawan at tilian, dun ako nakakakuha ng inspirasyon galing sa inyo. Ang kahilingan ko lang sa inyong mga fans na ipagpatuloy ang inyong walang humpay na pagsuporta sa Ginebra at sa PBA.

Kahit umulan man o bumagyo, para mapanood nyo lang ang inyong paboritong kuponan, nandyan parin kayo. At nagpapasalamat ulit ako for sharing this unforgettable experience. Maraming salamat ulit."

Mabuhay ka, Kabarangay Mark 'The Spark' Caguioa! You deserve every bit of that trophy!
