Globe Edges Smart in Bringing iPhone 3G to the Philippines


Globe Telecoms, the archrival of Smart Telecoms, slightly edged the latter by bringing to the Philippines the iPhone 3G. Globe announced in their website that it will bring iPhone 3G to the Philippines on August 22, 2008. iPhone 3G combines all the revolutionary features of iPhone plus 3G networking that is twice as fast (depending on site conditions), built-in GPS for expanded location-based mobile services, and iPhone 2.0 software which includes support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync and runs hundreds of third party applications available through the new App Store.

In addition, Globe will be offering special post paid plans that will allow consumers to experience the exciting features of iPhone 3G. These special plans will come with free local mobile internet hours and free Wi-Fi browsing hours (in areas covered by Globe Wireless Internet Zones). This, together with Globe’s call and text rates, ensures excellent connectivity. iPhone 3G will also be available on existing Globe tariff plans.

For Filipino iPhone 3G users, this is really a good news because Globe-powered iPhones promise to tap the full potentials of the iPhone 3G. However, I have posted before that the iPhone 3G still has missing features. Tech-savvy Pinoys have to know these weaknesses and see if they can live with these weaknesses and lacking in the much-celebrated iPhone 3G product by Apple.

    Mhy,

    I’m not sure whether teh Globe-powered iPhone 3G’s performance in the Philippines will be good. It will still be launched on the 22nd of this month. However, based on my review of the iPhone 3G, there are still many features which need to be improved. Like you I will wait for the updated software because at this stage, it’s expected that the iPhone 3G’s programs will still have bugs. The updates might solve the problems you are currently experiencing with your iPhone.

    Jess, dito may probs and iphone 3G. It’s some sort of program that makes it malfunction. Kaya it’s good to wait until it works well. Diyan sa atin, di ko pa na-try ang strength ng 3G.
