The clock is ticking and the number of days is just down to three before the official release of iPhone 4S in the Philippines this Friday, December 16, 2011. But days before that, the competition between SMART Communications and Globe Telecom is rising up to a heated level especially in terms of promotion.
Last weekend, SMART gave out apples in selected Supermarkets, Malls and SMART Stores in Manila. Yes, they literally gave people free Apples to promote their latest offer, the iPhone 4S made by Apple Inc.
Globe Telecom, on the other hand, published two blog posts today. The first one cited that the pre-order for the Globe iPhone 4S has already surpassed last years’ record for iPhone 4. The second one states that the iPhone 4S units of Globe arrived first in the country.
How about you? Which network do you plan to get your iPhone 4S?
iPhone 4S is indeed the most successful iPhone ever. It first broke US sales record when Apple reported that its pre-order reaches more 1 Million over the first 24 hours after its announcement last October 4 dethroning iPhone 4 pre-order quantity of 600,000 units.
Now, Globe Telecom announced in their official blog that iPhone 4S pre-orders
have already surpassed the pre-order of iPhone 4 last year. Although Globe didn’t mention the figures, it can be assumed that the number will continue to increase as the official release of the celebrated phone nears.
Globe and SMART Communication is bound to release the Sir-powered iPhone this Friday (December 16, 2011). This is the first time that SMART will be offering the Apple darling product and this development is expected to expand the usage of iPhones among Philippine based users.
iPhone 4S features a faster A5 dual core processor, a 8GB Camera, and an intelligent assistant Siri. It was released in the United States last October 14, 2011.
