I Want To Try The PLDT Telpad

Ive been curios about this PLDT Telpad before but didnt really mind about it coz I was thinking that if I subscribe ill have another add-on payments on my bill. Having a landline subscription to my internet bill has been heavy on my pocket because I dont use my landline much. Why use a landline when you have a mobile phone? Anyways, I just endured the monthly bills believing that if I go for wireless broadband its not the best option for my online job.

Now back to this tablet landline from PLDT. I just watched the PLDT Telpad AVP. After watching I seem to get interested in owning one. Ive been eyeing on buying a tablet for home use but Im still weighing things up and also the budget. If Im going to buy a tablet meaning I need to buy 2; 1 for mom and 1 for Justine since they keep on fighting over things. With this Telpad, I seem to have an option for both of them not going to fight coz Ill give them the impression its a landline for work and not meant for personal use. They usually respect it if its for my work. :) With this Telpad its actually handy also coz mom is not techy, So it'll be easy for her to navigate through the touch screen. Another thing also is that most of the time if I go out im connected online so in circumstances like this I can still get to call home via online even if I dont have a load on my mobile.

I could say a lot more advantages from what has been said also at the AVP but first I want to try PLDT Telpad to really have first hand review on it.
It seems like yesterday I bid my goodbye to Smartbro and say hello to PLDT MyDSL. Come to think of it Ive been a PLDT subscriber for almost 3 years already. Yes that long! Ever since I didnt recieved any gifts as loyal subscribers but more heartaches on the billling issues. If it hadnt been for the stable internet I would long be gone and subscribe to other networks.
I just hope that PLDT will offer this for free or even give a discount. I visited the PLDT website to check on how to avail the PLDT Telpad and here's the info that I got...

Im currently subscribe to myDSL Plan 999 which is bundled plan of Unlimited DSL + Landline. I wonder how flexible would they be with my currently plan. I still dont consider myself adding 550/month on my bill and Im not comfortable on the 3 year lock-in period.
