The smartphone market is a huge one, with more and more people buying new gadgets everyday and preferring those that seem to be able to do everything. With several new smartphones launched here and there, BlackBerry, one of the major players in the industry, pushes its platform more aggressively with products and services for customers of different needs and budgets.
I have always associated BlackBerry with expensive devices. I was glad to learn that BlackBerry is now offering more affordable devices. Take, for instance, the BlackBerry Curve 9220, which one can now get for free with a Globe Plan P499 plus P99 BBM subscription.
I’m pretty sure Filipinos, who thrive on staying connected anytime, anywhere would find the unlimited BBM messaging, photo sharing and group chats feature of BlackBerry phones really interesting. The company also shared that it is working with Globe, Smart and Sun to offer more options to customers.
In a briefing at Marco Polo Hotel Davao, Research in Motion (RIM) Director of the Philippines Cameron Vernest shared that BlackBerry is also targeting the youth market. Aside from more affordable devices and unlimited BBM services, RIM, in partnership with Globe Telecom, is also bringing international artist Nicki Minaj to the Philippines for a concert at the SM Mall of Asia Arena on July 11, 2012, as part of her Pink Friday Tour.
Customers who purchase a new BlackBerry Curve 9220 with a Globe My Super Plan gets 1 free ticket to the Nicki Minaj concert, while those who purchase a new BlackBerry Curve 9320 with a Globe My Super Plan gets 2 free tickets. The BlackBerry Curve 9220 comes free with My Super Plan P499 plus P99 BBM subscription, while the BlackBerry Curve 9320 comes free with My Super Plan Unli Surf Combo P999.
