Smart Communications will finally launch the iPhone 5 tomorrow, December 13, 2012. The event, dubbed as Smart Christmas Rush, will happen at Resorts World Manila from 9:00pm until 4:00am.


During the event, the 6th iPhone iteration – the iPhone 5 – will finally be launched at exactly 12:01 am. So, if you’re one of the many Filipinos who ordered the iPhone 5 with Smart, then you better be there to own and experience it in full glory.

In our assessment, though Globe Telecom included several free addons to their iPhone 5 plans, we find Smart Communications’ offer more enticing – especially its No-Cash out policy on a 32gb iPhone 5 at Plan 2,499.
