Connectivity now has a new meaning as Globe Telecom unveils the widest range of PDA phones that hook you up to the World Wide Web, giving you access to information and communication integrated in a portable support tool.
Even without your PC or laptop, you gain access to the Web with the new PDA phones that come free with a Globe Platinum Plan subscription or at great discounts with other G-plans.
With these PDA phones, Globe offers Internet browsing through GPRS. This lets you stay connected to the Internet with just your PDA phone, allowing you to get the information vital to your business or even for recreation.
And to make it more affordable, Globe introduces the G-Surf – its newest data plan that offers Internet browsing for a low as only 25 centavos per kilobyte at a fixed monthly rate.
"While the Globe Platinum Plan gives subscribers the number of free voice call minutes and text messages, we also recognize the need for cost-efficient Internet browsing. Globe G-Surf plan is the first of its kind in the country, offered to Globe subscribers who want to maximize Internet surfing on their PDA phones," says Nikko Acosta, head of Globe Handyphone’s Consumer Postpaid Business.
Personal digital assistant (PDA) phones are sleek, handheld computers that possess the latest and most accessible interfaces catering to the multi-tasking needs of their users. They serve as an organizer, note-taker and cellular phone.
The latest upgrades on various units come with a camera, MP3 player, MMS capability, speakerphone and 3D screen. And they operate on dual- or tri-band mode.
Globe introduces a diverse selection of the latest PDA handset models from the leading brands in PDA and mobile technology in the market today. Current offerings include the Sony Ericsson P800, a tri-band PDA phone using the Symbian operating system (OS), has a built-in camera, an MP3 player for music playback, a memory stick for larger picture and music storage, MMS capability, and 3D side screen games.
