Globe brought iPhone to the Philippines. Now experience the Storm!
Thursday, April 23, 2009


Captain's Log Stardate -314307.03

Globe Telecom today announced availability of the highly anticipated BlackBerry® Storm™ smartphone for its customers in the Philippines. The BlackBerry Storm features the world’s first “clickable” touch-screen and is packed with powerful communications and multimedia features.

The BlackBerry Storm smartphone boasts exceptional performance, and it comes with a stunning display and wealth of features including fast network access, a first class phone, desktop-style browsing, advanced multimedia, a 3.2MP camera, built-in GPS and the industry's leading email and messaging capabilities – all designed to give users an exceptional mobile experience.

Globe will offer the BlackBerry Storm smartphone to business customers at flexible corporate postpaid plans through Globe Business. Globe Business provides wireless and wireline data and voice solutions relevant to the needs of enterprises from diverse industries, including top corporations in the Philippines.

“We are pleased to announce that the BlackBerry Storm is now available on Globe’s corporate plans offered by Globe Business. We equip our customers with the best and latest mobility solutions that will help them be more productive and competitive at work, regardless of where they are or at anytime of the day,” said Jesus C. Romero, Head of Globe Business.

He added, “Powered by Globe’s 3G network, the BlackBerry Storm smartphone will allow our business customers to accomplish more by keeping them connected to colleagues and clients and enabling them to instantly access information they require, thus extending their workplace.”

The BlackBerry Storm will also be available for retail customers with various postpaid plans that fit their needs and lifestyle. With the launch of the BlackBerry Storm, Globe is introducing its new Personal BlackBerry Plans.

“The BlackBerry Storm will allow consumers to keep their connections close at hand through instant messaging and access to social networking sites. This, coupled with the handset’s rich multimedia features, makes it an excellent choice for both work and personal use,” said Ferdinand M. Dela Cruz, Consumer Wireless Business Head at Globe.

“Globe Telecom is very pleased to offer the BlackBerry Storm smartphone to both business and retails customers. People can purchase from Globe Business Centers nationwide and select one of the newly launched Personal BlackBerry Plans. These are unique plans that combine phone calls, text messaging and mobile Internet access so that customers can fully enjoy the exceptional BlackBerry smartphone experience,” he added.

“We are very excited to launch the first touch-screen based BlackBerry smartphone in the Philippines with Globe,” said Gregory Wade, Regional Vice President, Asia Pacific at Research In Motion. “The BlackBerry Storm provides the unique combination of a full-featured smartphone with a large vibrant display and a truly tactile touch interface, making it a perfect choice for both personal and business use.”

Globe’s consumer and business customers will both be able to maximize their use of the BlackBerry Storm smartphone through Globe’s HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access) network, which allows users to experience wireless broadband connectivity.
