OC, a registered trademark exclusively owned by TPV group, currently the world’s largest manufacturer of computer monitors and LCD screens, strengthens its presence in the Philippines with all-new widescreen LCD monitors showing off novel technical features and striking design innovations, and introducing AOC LCD Televisions in the market for the first time.

“AOC is dedicated in providing quality IT and entertainment experiences through its many products,” says Ms. Ula Ladrillo, Brand Manager of AOC Philippines “These include sleek and innovative design wide screen LCD monitors to maintain the no.1 market position in the market and the introduction of AOC LCD TVs”.

The Avio LCD monitor is said to be jack-of-all-trade with complete built-in digital entertainment gadgets. The AOC Avio offers premium picture quality for graphics-intensive applications. It comes with 3000:1(DCR) contrast ratio, which delivers exceptional image clarity, and 160-degree viewing angle to provide increased visibility from side viewpoints. Its response time is 5ms, a key feature that prevents fast moving objects from becoming blurred.

The New Lineup

Not exactly a breaking news but here it is, Globe’s official announcement. Should’ve posted this yesterday but I didn’t have access to a computer at the time.

I was sent to cover a Globe press briefing over at the Renaissance Hotel. Unfortunately the venue was already full when I got there, getting inside the ballroom was impossible, unless of course I squeeze in, which is something I’m totally not up to. Anyway, a majority of the event was devoted to providing the press with the company’s financial particulars for the first two quarters of the year. And then, they just announced the release of the Apple iPhone 3G. Just like that.

So here’s the official press release which I found in the PC World Philippines Web site.


Television has gone stylish and sexy as LG Electronics, a leading player in the global flat panel display market, introduces its new full HD LCD TV, LG Scarlet (model: LG60), the world’s

slimmest LCD TV from LG that flaunts breakthrough looks and advanced features, making it the next “It” TV.

One of the world’s thinnest LCDs at 2.4 inch (45mm) thick, LG Scarlet oozes with style that breaks away from TV design convention. It has a striking red back and uniquely decorated interior that reflect the latest and most outstanding sense of style.
