Globe continues sale of Tattoo Tonino Lamborghini
A report from Interaksyon that Globe Telecom has pulled out the sale of the Tattoo 4G Tonino Lamborghini stick from the market prompted me to follow up on the story.
So I went to one of the stores of Globe this afternoon to inquire about the Tonino Lamborghini 4G Stick and was assured the product/service is still available for subscription.
I had to double-check that so I visited their website and applied for the Plan 2199 and it was processed. The Plan 2199 and Tonino Lamborghini product page are still up and accepts applications.
Just to triple-check, I asked a friend to inquire from @talk2globe this evening regarding the same and they responded (at 9:18PM):
@talk2globe: Hi! It’s available at the following Globe stores only: SM Megamall SM North SM (cont) http://tl.gd/csia41
The issue started around 2 weeks ago when Tonino Lamborghini sent out a press release denouncing the Tattoo 4G stick that’s being marketed by Globe.
So it looks like business as usual for Globe Telecom and the Tonino Lamborghini 4G stick. I’m not sure though how that story from Interaksyon came about (either the order from above got delayed or the licensing has been finally fixed and settled).
GMANews followed up on my story and confirmed with Globe that the Tattoo Lamborghini stick wasn’t pulled out of the market.
Update 2: Don Ronquillo of Globe Telecom tweeted this today — “To clarify, the very controversial Tattoo Tonino Lamborghini Stick wasn’t pulled out fr the mkt. It’s still available in selected MM stores.”
