Except for Manzano, the rest of the local team of Sony-Ericsson has joined Sony Mobile. Patrick Larraga, Manzano?s long-time deputy at the dissolved subsidiary, is now heading Sony Mobile in the Philippines. Larraga said Manzano, who was also a former top executive of Nokia Philippines, has not joined any company yet and ?still exploring his options?. At the Sony Mobile?s official launch at the Mind Museum in Taguig City on Wednesday, Larraga proudly proclaimed that the company is now ?100 percent part of Sony.? Led by Larraga and Sony Philippines president Takao Kuroda, Sony Mobile debuted its first Sony Xperia smartphones in the country, which will now form part of its ?four-screen strategy? which includes television, tablet, and laptops. The company?s flagship unit is the new Xperia S, a Playstation-certified smartphone with 4.3-inch display with mobile Bravia engine. The Xperia S, along with Xperia P and Xperia U, carry a feature called ?transparent element? which emphasizes the large display and also works to hide the phone?s antenna components.]]>
