Globe has just launched their new mobile portal, called m.Globe, that offers free access to Globe services and feeds to your Twitter and Facebook accounts.
The service is pretty basic and can be access by any internet-capable phone (GPRS, EDGE, 3G, 4G) and is free via myGlobe Connect (APN: www.globe.com.ph)
To gain access, just text m.Globe to 2910. You can also download the Android App/Widget if you’re using any Android smartphone (just point your phone’s browser to http://m.globe.com.ph).
There’s option for personalization when you register your mobile number, add access to your Twitter feeds or Facebook Wall as well as email accounts (Yahoo! GMail, Windows Live). Here’s how the WAP site looks like on your mobile browser with 3G on.
Here’s what the Twitter updates look like. I have Php0 balance in my Globe Prepaid SIM when I posted this (3G data is On via myGlobe Connect).
Works on postpaid and prepaid SIM. Interesting to note that this new service is apparently Globe’s response to Smart’s Netphone campaign; the Globe website says so — “With m.globe, no need to spend for a new internet phone.“
