ASUS Philippines recently launched with fashion their latest Eee PC Seashell Karim Rashid Collection Netbooks. Co-conceived by one of the world’s leading designers, the Eee PC™ Seashell Karim Rashid is the realization of Karim’s vision of computing-one that is more sensual, more human, more hip. Completely contemporary and anathema to nostalgia, these netbooks are more daring, more intersecting, and are designed to appeal to young, mobile trendsetters while remaining an accessible luxury to everyone.

The Eee PC™ Seashell Karim Rashid manifests ASUS’ commitment to designing products that appeal to the five human senses, with an emphasis on vision and touch. To achieve this, ASUS’ industrial designers have had to pioneer a plethora of material, production, and textural innovations, such as the combination of rubber paint, in mold roller (IMR), and metallic materials to create thoroughly unique finishes.

Microsoft Philippines showcased the latest version of their office productivity suite – Microsoft Office 2010 which is now available for free Beta download.

Each area includes a product offering that is based on Avaya technology and utilizes complementary Nortel technology, either in part or in whole.

At the heart of the Avaya-Nortel combined vision is unified communications, in particular the Avaya Aura platform. Aura, launched almost a year ago, is a fully SIP [Session Initiation Protocol] based platform for unified communications. It will also include the former Nortel (now Avaya) Agile Communications Environment (ACE). Contact center, meanwhile, will utilize Aura as its base and incorporate technology from Nortel that include agent desktop, work assignment, experience management and analytics, shifting the contact center model to one that is more collaborative.
