Yolanda #ReliefPH Locations and Hotline Nos.

Hello kababayans, here is a list of locations and hotline numbers you can call should you want to extend your help in the ongoing Yolanda Relief Operations.

For cash donations, we advise the donors to always ask for acknowledgment receipts from the organizations you intend to partner with.

For in-kind donations, you may choose from the following:

1. Mineral water, bread, biscuits/crackers, and canned goods that are easy-to-open and ready-to-eat are suggested. Packed noodles are not recommended because they require boiling water which is scarce in these affected areas.

2. Toiletries, clothes, medicine for fever and diarrhea, slippers, clean underwear, mats, blankets, and mosquito nets

3. Candles and matches

4. Baby and adult diapers

Starmobile Diamond D1 announced

Happy Man by Starmobile surprised their followers when they posted a new smartphone on their timeline, the Starmobile Diamond D1. A phablet (5-inch) with a quad core processor, 1GB RAM, usual 4GB Internal Storage, HSPA+,  and running Android 4.2 Jellybean. What’s surprising is the phone's 3,000 mAh juice. Judging the pictures, it looks very thin and slim.

Heres there posters posted on Happy Man by Starmobile timeline on facebook:

  • 1.2GHz Quad Core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4GB internal storage, expandable via MicroSD up to 32GB
  • 5-inch display
  • Dragontrail  scratch resistant glass
  • 12 megapixel rear facing camera with autofocus, BSI and LED flash
  • 8 megapixel front facing camera with autofocus and BSI
  • HSPA+, WiFi, Bluetooth
  • 3,000 mAh battery
  • Android 4.2 Jellybean
  • SRP: P7,990
The resolution is still unknown but we re guessing it should be at least qHD but hopefully its HD display :). The good thing is it comes with OTA (over the air update) which means the phone will receive updates and probably updates to the latest version of Android. But for the price tag of P7,990 it is very promising and competetive.
