Globe YOUniverse Immortal TxtEXTENDED until June 30, 2010
Last August 29, I was invited to an exclusive Globe bloggers event where they bloggers got a sneak peak on their latest innovations packaged into one Globe YOUniverse! A place where mobile and internet converge and you are its center. I'm pretty sure you must have seen a couple of the ads promoting this product and service in high traffic areas and TV. But if you didn't pay much attention, you would have missed what it is all about.
Let's start with the Globe Tattoo 32K SIM. Packaged in a variety of pop-art designs, this SIM packs a powerful punch. Not only does it have the ability to work in regular cellular handsets, but it can work with your Globe Tatoo Internet stick (the USB dongle that you plug in your laptop or PC to have internet access). All bloggers, including myself, were lucky enough to receive a Globe Tattoo SIM which costs P40 and is pre-loaded with 25 free texts. I haven't had the chance to try this baby out since I don't have a Tatoo kit which, by the way, is offered at a special price of at P895 from the original price of P1,895 today until October 31, 2009. Rates are quite reasonable at P5 for 15 minutes or 15 centavos per KB.
Next is the Globe Tattoo website where the main feature is its "Mashup" page. On that page, you may drag and drop widgets according to your preference. Similar to Netvibes or Pageflakes, you could add widgets like fashion, gossip, music, and more. Share your ideas on converging mobile and internet in the "Share Your Ideas" page. Browse through the "Products" page to check out the latest product and promo offerings from Globe. Talk to the resident Globe Tattoo blogger by following him on the "Blog" page. Although this website is still in Beta, I must say that I am quite impressed!
Last but not the least, the Immortal Text Promo. Stingy Globe prepaid users may now rejoice because you may finally convert your P10 load into 50 texts to Globe/TM plus 10 texts to other networks that will NEVER EVER EVER expire. What's great about this promo is that you could accumulate SMS with every transaction. So if you aren't a heavy texter like I am, you should definitely invest in this promo. On the contrary, if you are a heavy texter, you are better off with other texting promos from Globe.
