Extraordinary Brilliant SMART-HTC Team Up!

Last week I got a chance to witness the teaming up of two of the biggest names in the industry of mobile communications - HTC and SMART. And live at the Opus Lounge and Restobar in Resorts World Manila, big names in technology, fashion and show business attended the event to add more glitz and glam!

Since I believe that these two companies are targeting the younger generation more, when I stepped inside the venue, I was welcomed by a very jive-y appeal that SMART and HTC were known for. Though, I wasn't really expecting a cocktail-ish party, I got to enjoy taking pictures of every guest who really dressed up for the event.

I saw some familiar faces like Pepe Smith, Cogie Domingo, Rhian Ramos, Aubrey Miles, Solenn Heussaff, Troy and KC Montero, Bubbles and Paolo Paraiso and many more. I also got to meet some of the beauty bloggers whom I've met some time a long ago.

With a theme that's focusing on the word "YOU", everyone was treated to a night of extraordinary fun and brilliantly entertaining presentation of the new units of HTC mobile phones and tablet.

The celebration of this team up started with the signing of contracts from the two parties which was immediately followed by some inspiring talk from each company's leaders.

Head, Wireless Consumer Division, SMART

Mr. Lenard Hoornik
President for Southeast Asia, HTC

And then, to heat up the night, they announced the first batch of winners of the raffle. One of them is this middle child's good friend Earth Rullan who took home a brand new HTC ChaCha.

HTC ChaCha is the first mobile phone that incorporates the wonder of the world's most famous social networking site Facebook. It is also the most affordable gadget that they presented that night, so Facebook addicts wowed by that great news.

After that some talk and giveaways, Mr. Darren Sng, Head of Product Marketing - HTC Asia,  demonstrated the amazing features of HTC's new breed of mobile phones. Despite of his shaking hand, Mr. Sng was able to share the amazing features of their mobile phones that made the crowd cry for more free phones. Hehe.

And so, the second batch of winners were called, then Mr. Louie Ang of SMART thanked everyone for coming but didn't put the celebration to an end because right after his speech a small fashion was held with models carrying the latest gadgets from HTC.
