Globe Telecom to bring iPhone 3G

Globe Telecom and Apple announced that they will be bringing the highly anticipated iPhone 3G to the Philippines later this year.

iPhone 3G combines all the revolutionary features of iPhone with 3G networking that is twice as fast as the first-generation iPhone, built-in GPS for expanded location based mobile services, and iPhone 2.0 software, which includes support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync and runs the hundreds of third-party applications already built with the recently released iPhone SDK.

“We are very excited to be working with Apple to bring Filipino consumers iPhone 3G later this year,” said Gerardo Ablaza Jr., president and CEO of Globe Telecom.

“Our customers are our greatest passion and we’re constantly striving to offer them the most innovative products such as the revolutionary iPhone 3G,” he added.

“We are thrilled to bring iPhone 3G to millions of mobile customers in the Philippines,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s COO. “We can’t wait to get this revolutionary mobile device in the hands of even more people around the world.”

iPhone 3G will be available to Globe’s postpaid and prepaid subscribers in the Philippines later this year.

Tip for browsing the net thru your mobile device

Well because I'm accessing the net thru my phone right now, I just want to share some tips.

First, get a decent browser. If you are not satisfied with your current browser try using operamini 4.1. As long as your phone has java capabilities, you can use this.

If you don't know yet, some sites are beginning to create mobile versions of their sites. Why? One, because the screen is small on our mobile devices. Secondly, our phones ram is small compared to our pc/laptops so it can't handle too many fancy graphics and pictures.

Alfredo "POYPOY" Lim Jr.

Just read it. Speaks for itself. Im proud of my brotha!


Finally our beloved CRT monitor said good bye. So we decided to buy a new LCD monitor. Its HannsG 22 inch. Look at the size of that! Nakakalula. Hehehehe. It has its own speakers and a HDMI slot. I can play my xbox 360 with this beauty.

Hanep! Made in China!

Hanep to! Try niyo nga magcompute gamit tong calculator na ito. Hehehehe.

Eat Here!

If by any chance you go to The Block in SM North EDSA, please go to Sebastian's on the fifth floor near the Cinemas. Their ice cream's the BEST! Try their (my favorite) cookie dough. And by the way its owned by my bro in law. Please support them! They also have branches in ATC and The Podium.
