“I called up the factory and asked them to produce 20 phones for the Aquino family. My mom (Elena Lim) knows Cory very well. We had no plans of launching it, just a keepsake for the Aquino family,”
Solid Group (the Pinoy company that produces MyPhone) President, David Lim, told The Star (source) last December.

A Bit of History
It was seeing Kris Aquino give a speech on TV following her mother's death saying that she would continue her devotion to the rosary and support Noynoy's plans that gave Mr. Lim the idea of giving the Aquino family 20 yellow MyPhone Q21 Duo phones.
However, the idea of mass producing the phone came to Mr. Lim when he met the cousin of Rapa Lopa, Cory's nephew, abroad:
“She said that everybody should remember Cory. That led to our meeting with the Benigno Aquino Foundation.” [via]
