"Once again, Globe marks another industry milestone with this new and exciting prepaid offer, where we bundled two of the most popular BlackBerry Curve smartphones, the BlackBerry Curve 8520 and BlackBerry Curve 9220, with free unlimited access to BBM and accessories in one complete and compelling package at a price that's within reach of our prepaid market," shared KD Dizon, Head of Globe Prepaid.
Now available in blister pack via Globe Prepaid for only Php 6,990, the best-selling BlackBerry Curve 8520 lets users access messaging and social networking applications that BlackBerry fans have grown to love through the years, including BBM, Facebook for BlackBerry, and Twitter for BlackBerry.
Released in the Philippines just last May 22, 2012, BlackBerry Curve 9220 comes not just with a refreshed design but also with the latest version of the BlackBerry operating system and even has a dedicated key for BBM on the side. You can now get this new handset model via Globe Prepaid for just Php 9,990!
"We are excited to partner with Globe to introduce these new attractive offers on the highly popular BlackBerry Curve models for prepaid customers," said Hastings Singh, Managing Director, South Asia at Research in Motion. "The BlackBerry Curve 8520 and BlackBerry Curve 9220 are affordable smartphone choices which provide an amazing user experience with all the unique social networking benefits needed to help Philippine customers stay connected throughout the day. We will continue making BlackBerry products and services more accessible to customers in the Philippines."
Both packs, which are now available at select Globe stores and retailers nationwide, come with complete accessories including stereo headset, travel charger, microUSB cable, and even a free premium skin case and 2GB microSD card. The bundled Globe Prepaid SIM card, on the other hand, lets users choose his or her own freebie offer.
