Bec. there’s no wifi in my home, I received an email and tweet from our PR contacts that the press con was moved 2 hours later, too bad that I didn’t read it earlier due to no wifi access at home.

John Royo, distributor of Lenovo Mobile in the Philippines, answered - why it is called “Walang Iwanan” for Lenovo Mobile’s slogan, meaning “never left behind”… he said that the phone is a brand that you can rely on, it’s a smartphone that you can count on and be your reliable device in everyday business, social media, transactions and communications.

J.D. Howard, VP of Lenovo Mobile
shared to us that Lenovo is a 34$ B global personal tech company with 27k people and customers in 160+ countries. It is the #3 maker of smart connected devices in the world.

He also informed us that Lenovo Mobile is a PC+ devices. I think it’s a fusion of a laptop and a mobile phone running on fast processor.

“With the entry of our smartphones in the country, we want to make our presence strongly felt through none other than our brand ambassador Kobe Bryant. Kobe exemplifies the qualities of Lenovo Mobile’s lineup of smartphones. His dedication, his passion and his outstanding performance on the court epitomizes the power and elegance of our products,” said Lenovo’s Vice-President for Mobile Internet and Digital Home (MIDH) Business Operations and Worldwide Business Development, JD Howard.
