Jump is the first-ever Experience Center conceptualized by PLDT and Smart to bring you up to date with today’s and tomorrow’s technology. We were able to attend the launching of the first Jump Center located at the 4th Floor Cyberzone, SM Megamall (beside the Globe center, Hehehe) today.
At first look into the area you would see the they took a page out of Apple’s interior design book with the spacious area, comfy chairs and sofa, fun and energetic wallpapers, stands littered all over the place where you can freely try the gadgets.
This Jump Center is created by PLDT and Smart for people to learn and experience the latest technology and services they had to offer. From the current and upcoming mobile phones and tablets to the latest in broadband services. Yes you can try out and see for yourself the speed of Smart’s HSPA+ Rocket dongle as well as their future LTE dongle here.
It’s not only for you to try and figure things out by yourself but there are Jump Squad personnel manning the place to answer your queries, teach you the ropes on how to use a particular gadget, or advise you as to which service/plan would be applicable for your needs. Think of them as Apple’s Genius in the Genius Bar, but only for pre-sales.
The Jump Center is not a retail store. If you saw a gadget that you like, you can’t buy it there but the Jump Squad will assist you in looking for a retail store where you can get one. It’s also not a support center where you can complain about not getting the right speeds or have them fix a faulty phone. You have to go to a Smart Wireless Center for that.
It’s a place for you to experience and learn, a digital playground if you will. In fact, they will also be holding what they call Springboard Sessions to educate consumers on things to consider when getting a smartphone, tips and troubleshooting the Smart Bro or learning the basics of a PC.
PLDT and Smart says they’re planning to put up similar centers in the future in other key cities in the country like Cebu and Davao.
