It was only when I sat down inside it for a once-in-a-blue-moon opportunity to actually sit inside these thingamajigs that run into cool millions that I saw the model. Yes -- a Lamborghini! I beat my car-loving son to the punch!
What we were introduced to that day were the two Tattoo LTE devices of Globe: 1) an LTE mobile WiFi device that doubles as a power bank with a 3,000 mAh capacity and 2) an LTE USB stick. I like the idea of combining a power bank feature into a wifi device!

Both LTE devices were designed by no other than Kenneth Cobonpue who's known as a Filipino design maven worldwide. Although the design of the LTE devices look a bit different from the mostly Filipino materials that are Cobonpue's trademark, he made sure they looked sleek and edgy - just like a powerful Lamborghini.
Globe said that their LTE coverage focuses on large contiguous areas instead of pocket activations and hotspots so you can be mobile without losing the continuous LTE experience. Their LTE sites are now active in select areas of Makati City, Pasig City, Quezon City, Taguig City, Manila, Muntinlupa, Mandaluyong, San Juan and Las Pinas. Outside NCR, their LTE sites can be found in key areas in Metro Cebu and Metro Davao as well as provinces of Bohol, Batangas, Negros Occidental, La Union, Rizal, Aklan, Laguna, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Nueva Vizcaya, Cavite, Cagayan, Pangasinan, Isabela, Ilocos, Quirino, Tarlac and Boracay, Aklan.
Globe is also offering a surfing deal called MAXSURF which basically gives subscribers bulk megabytes of surfing. You only use up the kilobytes needed to load each webpage regardless of how long you stay on a page. Hmmm, actually sounds like they are bringing back the option of charging by KB rather than by TIME.
