LG issues Official Statement & Special Offer
We sent word to both LG Electronics and Nokia Philippines earlier today if they want to issue an official statement regarding the incident last Saturday during the sale. LG was very quick to reply and sent us this statement.
In quotes below is the exact release they gave me.
LG Electronics Philippines wishes to thank the overwhelming number of customers who responded to our special ONE HOUR SALE for the LG OPTIMUS One Android 2.2 smart phone at LG Concept Stores at SM North EDSA Annex, SM MegaMall, SM Cebu City, and Gaisano Davao last Saturday.
Given that the announced sale was limited only to one hour (by DTI permit # 5911 series of 2010) and that only a limited number of customers were served, we regret the inconvenience this may have caused those who traveled long distances and lined up for hours (despite clarificatory announcements made by LG personnel) for the opportunity to purchase an Android 2.2-powered LG OPTIMUS One at half rate.
We will be contacting all customers who came to the LG OPTIMUS One Sale and left their contact details with the LG Team last Saturday with a special offer starting today, November 15, 2010.
Thank you for your continued support.
P.S. I’m still waiting for Nokia Philippines if they will also issue their own official statement. Will post them if and when they do.
