The wait is over. Globe held a countdown event in the eve of the official launch of the iPhone 4s having President Benigno “NoyNoy” Aquino III as the first recipient of the iPhone 4s in the country. PNoy is said to be a long-time subscriber of Globe and the iPhone 4s was given to him under Globe’s loyalty program.

Hailed as the most amazing iPhone yet, iPhone 4s boasts a Dual-Core A5 chip, an all-new 8-megapixel camera and optics, iOS 5, iCloud, and Siri. All that you can ask for a Smartphone you want to own.

Samsung Electronics Philippines Corporation (SEPCO), a leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, today announced the launch of its premium Series 7 CHRONOS notebook PC during its press conference at Time Bar in Makati City.
