Research In Motion (RIM), the maker of BlackBerry smartphones, and Globe Telecom team up once again to make it easier for Filipinos to stay connected with their loved ones this Christmas season, no matter where they are in the world. Until Dec. 31, customers who purchase a new BlackBerry 7 smartphone from participating Globe dealers and retailers get a Globe prepaid SIM that gives them free and unlimited access to Facebook and BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) for 30 days.
“This offer is our early Christmas gift to our Filipino customers so they can get in on the action of staying in touch with their loved ones this holiday season. Not only will they enjoy up to 35 percent off on BlackBerry smartphones this holiday season, they can also instantly share their status and photos with their Facebook friends and take full advantage of BBM’s robust unlimited local and international messaging for free,” Hastings Singh, RIM managing director for South Asia said.
“Now is the perfect time to get a BlackBerry device from Globe with this special promo that allows users to enjoy unlimited access to Facebook and BBM for free, allowing them to share those precious Yuletide moments and happenings without having to worry about excessive data charges,” said Peter Bithos, senior advisor for consumer business at Globe Telecom.
“With the free Facebook and BBM promo brought to you by Globe and BlackBerry, you get the exclusive privilege of staying connected with your social circles and loved ones worry-free this holiday season,” Bithos added.
The special promo is on the back of Filipinos’ growing penchant for Facebook as a means to connect with the rest of the world. According to SocialBakers.com, a global social media analytics platform, the Philippines ranks eighth in the list of countries worldwide with the biggest Facebook population with nearly 30 million users.
BBM is an instant messaging application that allows BlackBerry users to add friends, engage in unlimited group chats, send unlimited pictures, videos, files, and voice notes, and get instant confirmation once messages are delivered and read.
BlackBerry 7 smartphones included in this special promo are the BlackBerry Curve 9220, BlackBerry Curve 9320, BlackBerry Curve 9360, BlackBerry Curve 9380, BlackBerry Torch 9810, BlackBerry Torch 9860, BlackBerry Bold 9790, and BlackBerry Bold 9900.
