Ablaza, Jr. president and CEO of Globe Telecom, in the press release. “Our customers are our greatest passion and we’re constantly striving to offer them the most innovative products such as the revolutionary iPhone 3G.”
“We are thrilled to bring iPhone 3G to millions of mobile customers in the Philippines,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s COO, in the press release. “We can’t wait to get this revolutionary mobile device in the hands of even more people around the world.”
iPhone 3G will be available to Globe’s postpaid and prepaid subscribers in the Philippines later this year.
