Acer Philippines Inc. pulled all the stops in announcing its new celebrity brand ambassador, multi-talented actress Toni Gonzaga, in a two-part event on August 27 at the Metrotent Convention Center in Metrowalk and the Marco Polo Hotel Ortigas.
According to Manuel Wong, the brand’s general manger, the host, actress and singer personifies Acer’s principles of innovation, excellence, and passion.
“Toni’s the right choice, and she’s our first choice,” said the executive. “She can sing, she writes songs, she dances, she is a very good professional TV host, and more importantly, a very religious person who is also family-oriented.”
Returning the compliment, Toni shared how using her Acer smartphone helps her keep up with her demanding schedule.
“One thing I’m really thankful for with this new partnership I have with Acer is that their products made my life more convenient with multitasking features,” the celebrity responded. “Especially with the kind of lifestyle that I have—na busy talaga—I needed a phone that can keep up with me.”
Gifted with the ability to clearly discuss a variety of topics—be it showbiz news or in this case, technology—she took to task introducing the company’s latest line of Liquid smartphones
“This line offers seamless performance on everything—social media, photos, videos and documents,” Toni explained. “At the forefront of the units is the Acer Liquid Jade, a 7.55mm ultra-thin smartphone equipped with a 13MP camera, and the latest Android 4.4 KitKat operating system.”
She added that the smartphones feature Acer’s famous Float User Interface, which allows users to open and use four app windows all at the same time.
“When I was first given the phone, I was able to operate it without reading the manual. The Float is so convenient. When you’re texting or using another app, it separates everything. It’s a very good multitasking feature,” she enthused.
Talking more about her partnership with Acer, Toni recalled how she had long known about the brand while growing up.
“When I first heard that Acer was inquiring about getting me as an endorser, sabi ko sana mag-push through because not only do I know it has an established name, but my first laptop was Acer. So it’s good to be back with my first love,” she revealed.
Delighting the company’s executives and guests all the more, Toni took to the stage to sing her latest single “This Love is Like” from her album Celestine.
Following the intermission Acer announced it will sponsor the singer’s October 3 concert at the Mall of Asia Arena, which will mark her 15th year in show business.
