The long wait is over. The new iPad is finally in the Philippines, and Tattoo is out to prove its broadband supremacy by being the one to bring the hottest tablet to town and bundling it with a bunch of cool stuff: exclusive freebies, more-value-for-money plans, and an unbeatable browsing experience. Held at the Exchange Plaza in Ayala Triangle last May 29, the launch of the Tattoo-new iPad bundle gathered excited techies, Apple fans, and top celebs, who all wanted to see and try the tablet before everyone else.

“Tattoo is very pleased to bring to our subscribers the hottest tablet and the must-have device right now, which is the new iPad,” says Dong Ronquillo, Head for Tattoo Nomadic Broadband Business. “The strength of Tattoo as the number one broadband in the Philippines combined with the amazing features of the new iPad is a perfect match. Tattoo provides the best service and experience to our subscribers and so much more with unbeatable offers, freebies and discounts so that they live without limits. The new iPad, with Tattoo, brings to users a totally new, leveled-up experience! ”

By now, a lot of people already know why the new iPad is a must-have: it has a monster resolution (thanks to its 3.1 million pixels Retina Display) that will definitely keep you glued; uninterrupted surfing, video-watching, and music-listening for up to 10 hours is possible; and its Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound feature will just blow you away. And with Tattoo’s offerings, subscribers are in for the ultimate browsing experience. The Tattoo-powered new iPad is available at Plans 499 and 999, and comes with your choice of Wi-Fi + Cellular at 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB. You will be able to accomplish a lot at speeds of up to 7.2 mbps, but if you need more speed, you can get the Plan 999 and avail of speed boosts of up to 12 mbps, up to 15 mbps, and 21 mbps for only P100, P150, and P200, respectively. Plan 999 subscribers also have unlimited data browsing time while those under Plan 499 have the standard 50 hours, which can actually be stretched to 292 hours if you avail of their Supersurf promos.

The jam-packed event also revealed the new ambassadors for the Tattoo-new iPad bundle—tech blogger Mark Macanas, ChicoSci vocalist Miggy Chavez, fashion designer Charina Sarte, photographer BJ Pascual, blogger Cecile van Straten, eventologist Tim Yap, and the stunning Georgina Wilson—who all partied the night away with help from DJ Funk Avy and the very hot DJ Callum.
