A night of magic and music: Globe launches the Samsung Galaxy S III in full flair

The Mind Museum at the Bonifacio Global City was the perfect venue to showcase the highly-intelligent and exceptionally-powerful Samsung Galaxy S III. Like Samsung’s latest smartphone innovation, the science museum is designed for humans to learn from the past, explore the present, and discover the future.

Thanks to Globe, the number 1 in postpaid, hundreds of tech-savvy and gadget freaks got first dibs and experienced the most human phone yet during a grand launch held one Friday night. Globe executives Head of Postpaid Martha Sazon and Head for Digital Media Glenn Estrella, together with Samsung representative Coco Domingo led the press briefing and awarded five (5) media guests one Samsung Galaxy S III each after revealing why the Samsung Galaxy S III is best paired with a postpaid plan from Globe with its portfolio of fully-customizable unlimited data plans.

Supermodel Sarah Meier emceed the event and introduced mentalist Erik Mana as the night’s opening act. Showcasing what he does best, he wowed the crowd with his brand of magic and mayhem, drawing tremendous applause from everybody closely following his every move. Already pumped up, the audience was then treated to a rousing and upbeat dance number courtesy of the Philippine All-Stars, one of the country’s prime sources of pride.

After having everybody get on their feet, the exciting features of the Samsung Galaxy S III and how each can be best maximized with Globe My Super Plan with the different freebies and bundled services were unveiled. Globe has the best and most unbeatable offer for the Samsung Galaxy S III in the market today, where subscribers can get the device for as low as P1699 a month under Unli Surf Plan 999 with P700 monthly cashout complete with unlimited data and 1 freebie, or P1999 monthly under Unli Surf Plan 1799 with P200 monthly cashout for an extra P800 monthly consumable amount for calls and texts and 3 freebies. Over 50 Globe subscribers headed straight to the event not only to enjoy the show, but also to claim their very own Samsung Galaxy S III.

Giving the event an added flair was the reveal of the Globe Samsung Galaxy S III Brand Ambassadors such as TV host David Celdran, fashion and style icon Apples Aberin, topnotch fashion blogger Ingrid Chua-Go, celebrity chef Sau Del Rosario and sports enthusiast and TV personality Rovilson Fernandez. They were the perfect embodiment of intelligence and greatness, which is what the device and the Globe postpaid plan both stand for.
Taking the excitement a notch higher, Sarah raffled off thirty (30) more Samsung Galaxy phones, giving the lucky ones a big smile on their faces.

Capping off the night was international music icon Moony, who was flown by Globe straight from Italy. The hottest vocal sensation in the Venetian club rendered some of her most famous hits, along with some signature dance hits that made the crowd go wild amidst a rainy backdrop. One of Manila’s top DJs Funk Avy also spinned as the crowd danced the night away, complemented by unlimited hord d’oeuvres and cocktails served until the very end.
