If you’re a Disney fan (and who isn’t, really!), then get ready for some really cool awesomeness!
During Globe’s “ONE DIGITAL NATION” event at the Marriott Grand Ballroom which I attend just a couple of days ago, The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia and the Philippines’ number one mobile brand Globe Telecom announced the launch of Southeast Asia’s first Disney Mobile smartphone. Yes! You read that right… DISNEY MOBILE!
Globe Telecom will be the first telco in Southeast Asia to offer Disney Mobile smartphones through its new myStarter postpaid plans for as low as P750 per month. It’s perfect for kids and adults alike!
These Disney Mobile smartphones are created especially for the trendsetting Disney fan and are beautifully themed around popular Disney franchises. These smartphones carry the signature aesthetic of the Disney brand from its lively colors to matching themed accessories.
The first Disney Mobile range for the Philippines comes in 3 themes:
- Mickey Mouse
- Disney Princess
Disney Mobile – A magical device for the child in all of us
If you think these Disney Mobile smartphones are just aesthetically attractive, think again. Apart from its adorable hardware design, each Disney Mobile device is packed with custom content that is sure to bring the fun and magic of Disney right in the palm of one’s hand. The smartphones’ interfaces show tailored app icons, Disney-themed live and static wallpapers, widgets and exclusive re-recordings of famous Disney songs as ringtones, such as It’s A Small World, Do You Want to Build a Snowman, Part of Your World, and the like. Premium Disney apps are also included in each device and in line with the smartphone theme. These range from Princess Story Theater, Frozen Storybook Deluxe, to Castle of Illusion, among others.
Disney Mobile is an LTE device that gives users access to a whole range of other Disney content such as games, apps, books and the Disney Philippines website.
According to Globe Senior Advisor for Consumer Business, Dan Horan, the arrival of Disney Mobile in the Philippines is one of the milestones of their multi-year comprehensive partnership with The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia. He adds that they are thrilled to offer these phones exclusively through their budget-friendly myStarter postpaid plans. Not only do Globe customers have access to Disney’s interactive content, movie premieres and retail promotions, but also to a device designed after one of the most iconic brands in the world.
James Gray, General Manager for Disney Interactive, The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia says, “Disney continues to actively pursue innovative digital media opportunities and provide fans with the best entertainment experience on whatever platform they want. Smartphones have immensely changed the way Filipinos consume entertainment and Disney Mobile allows us to bring our content closer to more fans in a fun and personal way.”
Alongside Globe and Disney, Cellprime CEO Eric Yu also shared that they are proud to be working with Disney and Globe Telecom to bring Disney Mobile to the Philippines. Cellprime aims to provide Globe Telecom’s millions of customers with devices that bring them the magic of Disney, every day, through their phones. Cellprime is the manufacturer of Disney Mobile handsets in the Philippines.
