  1. Asus Philippines should work on their product launchings here in the Philippines. This phone has been out for almost a year now but I saw it only being sold here recently. It was already too late then, already bought a phone. Another item I’ve been looking for is their Asus Zenpad S 8.0 and I have not seen a store that sells it or has it in stock.
