RIM and Globe give early Christmas gift to Filipino customers
Research In Motion and Globe Telecom team up for a new promo, making it easier for Filipinos to stay connected with their loved ones this Christmas season, wherever they may be.
From December 1 to 31, 2012, buyers of a new BlackBerry 7 smartphone get free unlimited access to Facebook and BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) for 30 days.
“This offer is our early Christmas gift to our Filipino customers. Not only will they enjoy up to 35% 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,” said Hastings Singh of RIM in a statement.
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, the Philippines ranks eighth in the list of countries worldwide with the biggest Facebook population with nearly 30 million users.
BlackBerry Messaging, or 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 promo include 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.
