Owned by PhoneCo Mobile Technologies Inc., Cloudfone is a local brand of affordable mobile phones and tablets. The brand was supposedly introduced to the market as a response to a growing demand for cheaper touchscreen smartphones.
The company believed that the days of Voice calls and SMS messaging are over as more and more consumers take advantage of the data services and have become more social media savvy. Anywhere you look, you can see Filipinos swiping their fingers across their mobile devices and connecting with their friends, colleagues and literally the world. Touchscreen smartphones also offer a new form of recreation with the many game apps that can be downloaded and played, providing hours of fun and excitement. Of course, such technology comes at a price and in a country that is considered to have the most expensive data rates in Southeast Asia, it is only right for a company to offer low priced touchscreen smartphones under the brand CloudFone.
Popularity in the Philippines
