Just got this info from Smart. They will be having a one-day promo on January 19, 2012 (today!) at the Powerplant Mall in Rockwell where you will be able to get the Samsung Galaxy Note for FREE on Unlimited Data Plan 2000. That's not really the good news on this promo, did I say that people who will be approved will not have to pay for their first monthly service fee? Yes, if you rush to Rockwell later and signed-up for a contract, you'll get the first month for free, plus, the phone-tablet hybrid device is yours!

Get the Galaxy Note FREE with Smart unli data
[13 January 2012] Wireless leader Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) gives subscribers a great new reason to get on the smartphone bandwagon. The popular Samsung Galaxy Note is now free at Unli Data Plan 2000 for both new and existing Smart subscribers. Smart’s Unli Data plans all come with unlimited mobile Internet, plus free SMS and call minutes.
Dubbed the ‘do-in-one phone’, the Samsung Galaxy Note is set apart by its unique combination of a smartphone’s 24/7 connectivity and portability, and the pleasures offered by the screen real estate of a tablet – its 5.3-inch WXGA (1280 x 800 pixels) HD Super AMOLEDdisplay offers crisp and vivid viewing.
True to its name, the Samsung Galaxy Note also boasts of specs that make input, capture, and creation a sophisticated and free-flowing affair – but with the ease and simplicity of jotting down notes with pen and paper.
With the jury still out on whether it’s a phone or a tablet, what’s clear is the superiority of the technology behind the Samsung Galaxy Note. It is powered by a snappy 1.4GHz Dual Core Processor, it runs on Android™ 2.3 (Gingerbread), and is capable of delivering HSPA+ speeds of up to 21Mbps for data.
The best network
To truly enjoy the extraordinary features of the Samsung Galaxy Note, it is best used on the Smart network, which provides only the best connectivity to the most advanced devices.
Smart has the widest HSPA+ network in the country, ensuring coverage in most places, and is the only telco in the Philippines with a dual band 4G HSPA+ network – which gives mobile devices better signal reception, faster connection speeds, and better battery life.
“We are passionately focused on providing superior customer experience, by offering the best choices of devices, worry-free affordable plans, on top of making available a vastly superior network,” said Gio Bacareza, head of Smart’s Broadband Internet and Data Services team. Together with its parent company PLDT, Smart has embarked on a P67.1-billion network transformation program, geared at ensuring the highest possible quality of service.
With an unlimited data plan from Smart, and a network that assures 24/7 data connectivity, there are no limits to what one can do with a mobile device as powerful as the Samsung Galaxy Note.
On January 19, 2012, more people will be able to grab their very own Samsung Galaxy Note as Smart holds a one-day-only promo at the Powerplant Mall in Rockwell, where approved postpaid applications will get the first Monthly Service Fee (MSF) free.
The best packages
Also available from Smart’s Unli Data Plans are the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc (free at Unli Data Plan 3000), the HTC Sensation™ XE with Beats Audio (free at Unli Data Plan 2000), and the Nokia N9 (free at Unli Data Plan 2000). All three phones come with free SMS and call minutes along with unlimited data service.
For prepaid subscribers, Smart also offers “Always On” volume-based packages for as low as P300 for 250MB (valid for 30 days) and “Unlisurf” time-based packages for as low as P50 for 1 day. For those who prefer bite-sized access to the Web, there is the regular bucket pricing of P10 for every 30 minutes of use.
