Relevance: 100%      Posted on: March 4, 2013

Last week, local distributor BanBros Commercial announced that they will be releasing the GalaPad in local stores. The GalaPad is a 7-inch IPS tablet that's powered by a Tegra 3 processor running Jellybean. I called up some stores in Metro Manila over the week-end but none of them knew about the GalaPad. After contacting the distributor, they indicated that Asianic and Accent Micro will be getting stocks later this week.

Did Apple offer the iPhone 4 to Smart for 6B?

Relevance: 96%      Posted on: September 29, 2010

Heard about it once before and the rumor surfaced again this week that Smart Communications was trying to bid to carry the iPhone 4 in the Philippines. It never materialized so we'll have to put this entry in the speculative bin. The iPhone 4 is the 3rd smartphone from Apple to be released exclusively thru Globe Telecom in the Philippines. Globe is partly owned by SingTel (which also got the exclusive deal in Singapore) so it probably was a package deal for them 2 years ago. However, in some countries or regions, there are multiple carriers that distribute the iPhone.…

Why international gadgets don’t have local warranty

Relevance: 89%      Posted on: August 27, 2012

I often get these types of questions from readers -- why are gadgets bought in other countries (HK, SG, US) not supported for warranty repairs and replacement in the Philippines? Well, it turns out this is all about the economics of the distribution system. There's a supply chain that is normally followed when a product is introduced in the country. Normally, brands would not bring their products in the a region if they do not have a local distributor. Distributors play a huge role as they are basically the ones that somewhat bank-roll the introduction of the products to the…

Nokia probably shipped 30 units of Lumia 920 to the PH

Relevance: 87%      Posted on: March 4, 2013

News spread fast a couple of days ago that the much-awaited Nokia Lumia 920 had been released in the Philippines with a suggested retail price of Php26,990. This, after several months of being delayed (as far back as December). However, a quick survey from all the Nokia Stores that are selling the handset resulted in shortage of stocks so we asked from some sources that revealed a very low supply of the Lumia 920. Apparently, one of the two biggest importers/distributors of Nokia phones in the Philippines only shipped 15 units. We're assuming the other distributor might have shipped the…

How your gadgets are priced in the Philippines

Relevance: 80%      Posted on: October 19, 2010

I've always wondered how gadgets (or electronic appliances) are priced when they land in the Philippines. Been asking around and doing some research and here's what I got from various sources. There's the basic computation and there's the more complex computation but basically it all boils down to taxes, profit margins, taxes and more taxes. Here's the basic formula: { Landed Cost + (3% to 50%) Import Tax } * 12% Value Added Tax = Net Landed Cost The net landed cost is between 15% to 62% on top of the basic cost. This is just the cost to the…

Lessons we can learn from the DataBlitz vs. XPlay fiasco

Relevance: 80%      Posted on: November 8, 2012

The recent round of news stemming from the NBI raid of DataBlitz stores around the metro has given us quite an insight on how the machinations of distributorship comes into play. A couple of months ago, we touched a little bit on the way distributorship works in the Philippines in our story 'Why international gadgets don’t have local warranty'. X-Play has been aggressively mobilizing their PR machinery to get their side of the story and explain why they had to resort to going to the courts and had all of the branches of DataBlitz raided. Whether the allegations that pirated…
