Globe Leads Mobile Data Business with Aggressive Device and Plan Offers


MANILA, Philippines - With technology moving at an almost-supersonic speed, new gadgets and services crop-up almost every week. But for many mobile phone users, the need for gadgets and offers that actually work for them and suit their lifestyles reigns supreme over those that may be loaded with all sorts of hi-tech features but irrelevant and unusable. With the mobile telephony market reaching its mature stage, mobile data business offers new opportunities among Filipino mobile phone users in terms of usage and patronage.

Globe Telecom takes the lead in mobile data business in the Philippines as demand for reliable, on-the-go Internet connectivity increases. The company announced it would expand its device lineup to include more smartphones and tablets at various price ranges, as well as more flexible and affordable data plans for its subscribers.

Globe offers an array of the world's most hardworking smartphones with a free 30-day trial of Globe Super Surf so users get to enjoy the full experience of their gadgets while to surf the net their way. The Huawei Ideos u8150, rated as one of the best-valued handsets by global tech experts, is one of the world's cheapest Android smartphone.

Powered by an Android 2.2 Operating System (Froyo), the Ideos u8150 can be customized with communication, entertainment, productivity and gaming applications. The Ideos u8150 also doubles as a wifi router for up to 8 devices at a time. It comes in black, yellow, blue and purple, perfect for those who want to match their phones with their personalities.

The world's largest multi-technology company, Samsung, partners with Globe for a mobile Internet bundle for its best-valued Android mobile phone, the Samsung Galaxy 5 i5503 Europa. The Europa is powered by a 600 Mhz processor that's fast enough for gaming, sending Tweets, viewing Facebook photos and even reading eBooks. You can also use this phone to stream your music to other DLNA-compliant TV or audio system at home.

The Huawei Ideos u8150 and Samsung Galaxy 5 i5503 Europa both come free with Globe MySuperPlan 499 and 30 days of Super Surf.

Globe is also introducing two of Samsung's latest devices - the Samsung Galaxy Mini s5570 and the Samsung Galaxy Ace s5830.

The Samsung Galaxy Mini s5570 is small in size, but big on fun and function. Running on an Android 2.2 (Froyo), the Galaxy Mini features a microUSB port and microSD card slot and supports Wifi 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1.
