Just talked to a couple of folks who have close relationship with Toshiba that the company will be opening a local office in the Philippines by August this year.
Currently, Tricom is the one that’s representing Toshiba in the Philippines (theyâ€™re the ones that handle local product launches and send out review units). We always have to refer to Toshiba Singapore when it involves corporate communications.
Now that they are opening a local office, we should be seeing more presence of Toshiba products as well as better support from the company.
For one, expect the Toshiba Thrive tablet to land in the Philippines real soon (weâ€™re expecting to get our hands on one very soon).
