A team of Smart developers that has empowered millions of Filipinos to enjoy more affordable mobile internet services, has helped place Smart on the international innovation map. At the recently concluded Asia Communication Awards held in Singapore, Smart bagged the Innovation Award for the Smart Netphone, winning over the region’s top operators and providers, including Singapore’s SingTel; and Malaysia’s YTL Communications.

Netphone is the world’s first smartphone backed by an operator-managed platform. It is powered by SmartNet, a platform developed by Smart, that allows Netphone users to chat, check their Facebook and Twitter social stream without switching applications, post online updates, and much more for free. SmartNet also features “Safe Browse” which, when activated, prevents other applications outside SmartNet from accessing the Internet, making it suitable for both the Internet habits and purchasing power of Filipino mobile users.
