True SonyEricsson fans live in the Philippines
12 June 2002
What do you do when you like your Ericsson/SonyEricsson phone so much that you visit Esato once a day for the latest news about this brand and want to talk to like-minded. You start your own SonyEricsson user group of course
This is what some of our members from the Philippines have done. You may have noticed the large number of posts in our forum. Pinoy Chit-Chat, Pinoy Chit-chat (Archive) and Pinas EB - (who, when and where) are all on the top of our forum top 20 list.
If you are from the Philippines and want to join the group or post in one of the threads, you should start your "application" by reading the Pinoy Chit-chat (Archive). This thread will inform you about their internal rules for the PPC (Pinoy Chit-Chat) thread.
The user group is also very active in the "real world". In addition to using some of their spare time in the Pinoy Chit-Chat thread they also arrange EB (Eye Ball. Slang for get together occasions) meetings. In the time of writing, they have arranged three EB’s. SonyEricsson Philippines was invited to the second user group EB, and brought with them some accessories which was given away as prizes in a competition.
Because none of the members had met in real life before the first meeting and the meeting was in a public place, it was not easy to find each other. The first arriving members had to go from table to table and ask "Esato?"
An election have been hold and the PSEUG (Philippine Sony Ericsson User's Group) are:
Norbert Aquende (Handsome Puppy) – President
Arnold Cruz (arnlodc) - VP, Technology
Niño Pasamonte (babynino79) - VP, Public Relations
Erwin Olario (GOWin) - VP, Operations
GOWin have taken most of the pictures in this article from the EB meetings. Take a look yourself here: http://pbase.com/gowin/esclub
