Apple’s flagship smartphone, the iPhone 4S, finally hit the Philippine market officially with both Globe Telecoms and Smart Communications offering postpaid plans and prepaid kits to subscribers starting December 16. You can read some iPhone 4S FAQs here.
Last night, December 15 (Thursday), was the scheduled official launch of the much anticipated iPhone 4S in the Philippines, with back to back launching events by both Globe and Smart (two of the largest telco networks in the country). Smart had its launching venue at Power Plant Mall while Globe had it at Ayala Museum. Prior to the night event, iPhone 4S enthusiasts can help but tweet their excitement – with hash tags #SmartiPhone4S and #GlobeiPhone4S trending in Twitter (Philippines).
But one thing most iPhone 4S wannabes are pointing their eyes on right now is official price of Globe and Smart’s iPhone 4S postpaid and prepaid kits. I was lucky enough to get the official price for Globe prepaid kit and Globe Business postpaid package for iPhone 4S courtesy of an official email sent on a colleague by a Globe representative. Below are the prices:
