Globe Telecom and Smart Communication will be holding launch parties for the Apple iPhone 4s tonight, Thursday, December 15, 2011. Globe's event will start at the Ayala Museum at 8:00PM on December 15th and will be officially launching the iPhone 4s at 12am on December 16. Smart is having their event at the same time at the Rockwell Powerplant Mall on the 15th from 8:00PM to 4:00AM the next day.
Though unverified, rumour is the Globe iPhone 4S will cost just Php4,000 cash out on Plan 1799 with a two year lock-in. Prepaid units will start at Php30,000 for the 16GB units. This seems about correct given the starting price of US$649 retail price for unlocked iPhone's. If this is true than competition has brought down the price by about 20%.
Smart is going to raffle Gift Certificates from Zara, Massimo Dutti, Kenneth Cole, Mango, Lacoste and other vendors, raffle away 94 gadgets and keep you entertained with a whole line-up of events. I am not sure if this is limited to those who have registered.
