On the last FIC call, I recounted how my wife and I landed in Manila in January 2001, one day after the ouster of President Estrada – he was ousted by text messaging!! Text messaging is known as ‘texting’ or SMS (short message service). Texts are short messages sent by computer or cell phone to another cell phone.
Philippines is ‘Texting” capital of the world:
According to Anthony Ian Cruz, a spokesman for TXTPower (a consumer advocacy group), the Philippines, which has a population of almost 80 million, has 14 million to 16 million mobile phone users generating 150 million to 200 million text messages a day – one of the largest volumes in the world.
You can now send messages to Honda Cars Philippines via SMS text, such as to schedule a service appt. or check on your car’s repair.
