Globe Telecom FREE Facebook offer

To counter the the recently launched free app called BBM (BlackBerry messenger ) on the Apple and android platforms. Globe has tied up with Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook to offer you free Facebook access on your Globe prepaid and postpaid smartphones and feature phones. As a loyal user of both Social Media Applications, i am very excited who eventually will come out on top! Kudos to Globe Telecom for this innovative and very "Smart" move.

Globe Tattoo 4G Mobile WiFI Review

This is Globe Tattoo's latest 4G Mobile wifi device which currently got a price drop from P2,500 to P1,995. It is a rebranded Huawei e5220s which supports advertised speeds of up to 7.2Mbps. the device can handle 10 devices at a time when it is used as an access point giving an advantage compared to previous models. 

 The sim card slot is located at the back of the device beneath the battery which is a 3.7V 1150mAh Li-Ion Battery.
Over-all i am getting very good speeds with this device with my postpaid sim, but one thing that bothers me is that it doesnt work with multi-cut or combination sim cards which ironically globe has bundled with this device.

Looks: 8/10 cute but the white color will be easily stained despite the matte finish.
Functionality: 6/10 decent speed but does not work with dual-cut sims.
Price: 7/10 it could have been more affordable
Over-all: 7/10 I really like how it looks, but the lack of dualcut sim functionality turns me off.

THis device is available in all Globe Business centers in the Philippines.
