Models Raya Mananquil , Isabel Roces and Valerie De los Santos are a sight to behold, but even more of an eye candy is the smartphone they’re holding: the much-touted Samsung Galaxy S which made its debut in the Philippines today.
Something about the Samsung Galaxy S specifications make it the “must have” gadget of the season. I certainly drooled the first time I held it in my hands. Its enviable feature set includes: super sleek form factor, 4-inch super AMOLED touchscreen, HD video capability, powerful 1 GHz processor, 5 megapixel camera, internal memory of up to 16GB (expandable to 32GB by microSD) and of course it is using Android OS version 2.1 which should make it user-friendly for us using Google 😀
For a limited period, Samsung’s latest smartphone will be given for free to new Globe subscribers who avail of Plan 2499 for a 36-month lock-in period, from now until July 31, 2010. This means only one month to enjoy this offer which is bundled with a month’s worth of unlimited surfing. After the promo period, the Galaxy S will be offered free at higher Globe Plans such as Plan 3799. The prepaid kit is priced at P32,995 and comes with free five days of Super Surfing.
