Globe Blackberry MAX's price drops to P599/month! BB users rejoiced!

It's already confirmed that there is a price drop on Globe's Blackberry MAX service from P999 to P599. (Thanks for the heads-up, Nikka). I guess this is a way for Globe to push more subscribers to use Blackberry. 

For those who don't know what Blackberry MAX is, it is also known as Super Surf for Blackberry. With this service, you get unlimited surfing, connect to your social networks, send and receive email (real-time), BBM and other instant messaging service, video streaming and tethering.

The change was implemented last August 6, 2011 and was announced over twitter. See link and screenshot below from @talk2Globe
