Smart, Globe offers Facebook for All Java App

In order to increase their mobile internet subscriber-base, Smart and Globe both released a Java-based App so that even cheaper (mostly Symbian S40) phones can now access Facebook conveniently.

Smart’s FB Java app works on over 2,500 low-cost phone models {see list here}.

To download, just text FB to 211. You will get a confirmation SMS with the link to the download page.

The service is free until October 14, 2011. Smart did not indicate how much they will charge after that but it’s possible the Php20 FB-all-you-want can be used here.

Globe also announced a similar Java app yesterday. To download their app, just text FB to 2910 to get the link.

You will need to use the MyGlobe Connect APN settings in order to use it for free (else you get charged the normal rates). The service is also free until October 31, 2011.
