NEO celebrated their 10th anniversary in the IT retail industry with their partners and the media last July 25 at the EDSA Shangri-La Hotel. They began in 2003 as a partner of PLDT (Philippine Long Distance & Telecommunications Company) by providing Desktop PCs bundled with PLDT’s services.
Throughout the years NEO has sold Laptops and Netbooks that were more affordable than their competitors. As the top local notebook brand in the Philippines, they are backed by globally trusted technologies from Intel and Microsoft. This year, they expanded their product line by launching their new Omnipad tablet series.
The NEO Omnipad R72 has an RK2926 Cortex A9 processor under its hood, Android 4.1 (Jellybean), 4GB built-in storage expandable up to 32GB MicroSD card, 512MB RAM, 7-inch multi-touch LCD screen, WiFi connectivity, and a battery with a capacity of 3000 mAh.
The other NEO Omnipad tablet is the M71-3G, which is equipped with more advanced specs. While it has the same screen size display and OS, the M71-3G has an MTK8377 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 8GB internal storage (also expandable up to 32GB Micro SD card), 1GB RAM, a battery capacity of 3600 mAh, Analog TV, Phone features (such as calls and SMS) and 3G internet. The M71-3G comes with accessories such as a card cradle and car charger.
NEO Founder and CEO Jason Cheng said, “We are committed to building the Neo brand in the Philippines and better serve our customers by demonstrating continuous product enhancements and developments and improved after-sales service. We’ve also enhanced our channel partner program through marketing support. To date, we are celebrating a decade of partnerships with six trusted retailers in the country, and the list of partners continues to grow.“
Also announced is NEO Care’s support for the Omnipad. If an Omnipad owner encounters a problem, all he needs to do is contact 1-800-10-5311671 (or 5311671 for Greater Metro Manila area) to speak with a NEO Technical Expert. The Technical Expert will check and troubleshoot if there are problems with the tablet, and If the issue is not resolved, a pick-up schedule will be agreed upon by the technical expert and the customer. Within seven (7) days from the day the unit was picked-up, a repaired/replacement unit will be sent to the customer.
NEO gave recognition to their retail partners, namely Octagon, PC Express, PC Corner, Silicon Valley, Techead and Compex.
Congratulations NEO Philippines for reaching your 10th year and we hope to see more affordable laptops and tablets in the near future!
