We got breaking news, again! Prominent Cebuanos are expected to queue for their iPhone 4S as Globe Telecom will also launch the handset in Cebu on Friday, 9AM at Radisson Blu Hotel.
CTB was told that there will be a spot-selling for those who didn’t pre-order the iPhone 4S and spot-selling will be open to public in the afternoon.
Earlier today, we reported about Globe’s official pricing for iPhone 4S postpaid and prepaid plans and that the telco will also accept trade-in for older iPhone models.
