What better place to build Starmobile’s first flagship store than in Davao. ““The most promising times in mobile communications now begin as Starmobile formally opens its first flagship store in Gaisano Mall, Davao.” This was the other milestone Michael Chen spoke of. “In our years of experience, we have witnessed how Filipinos have developed this personal and intimate connection with their mobile phones.
