Globe ready to
launch iPhone4S

Globe Telecom yesterday announced in a press release the Philippine commercial launch of iPhone4S on December 16 and it will also make available the complete array of Apple mobile devices—from the iPhone3Gs to the iPad2—bundled with innovative plans.

Globe has started taking pre-orders for iPhone4S on December 1. To place an order, customers can log on to at http://iphone4s.globe.com.ph, the press release said.

Globe president and chief executive officer Ernest Cu said the company maintains a formidable partnership with Apple that began with the launch of the first iPhone in 2005.

Its partnership with Apple has allowed Globe to offer best-value deals for the complete iPhone and iPad product suites, the press release said.

As of end-September 2011, Globe postpaid subscribers reached 1.37 million, up 39 percent year-on-year.

The company’s mobile data business is also a key growth driver, with revenues accounting for 52 percent of total mobile service revenues and growing by 11 percent to P20.8 billion, on the back of new, affordable services that promote the use of mobile internet for social networking, search engine and email services, the press release added.*
