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.

LG’s Optimus One sale last Saturday was mobbed by thousands in malls. The 1-hour sale resulted into a lot of disappointed customers wanting to get their own Android handsets at half the price.

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.

    ano ba yan…one hour sale??? pinapahirapan lang ang mga consumer…..papapilahin una mga tao nila tapos pagdating mo (customer) sa counter tapos na one hour sale nila..\
    manluluko ang mga taga LG,,,,,,e-boycott as SAMSUNG nalang tayo total mas ok naman ito kaysa sa manluluko na LG.

    “I got my phone so how does that make me an idiot?”

    It doesn’t. Because by the way you post even without buying that phone you are already an idiot in the first place. Heck you were born that way by the looks of it :D

    i traveled 2.5hrs (from Cavite)to get to Mega for the LG promo. I wasn’t setting my hopes high on getting the droid, simply by computing the odds of getting a phone (60 phones in 1 hour)i was sure mahirap makakuha. But still i went there for who knows baka makaswerte lang. I was there at 9:30am, when i saw the lines at 10am; I already decided no chance of getting the droid today.

    Mas magaan dalhin if you accept the fact as it is.. let’s not dwell on the “Blame Game”. Cellphone lang yan, the fact that you went there early means you were willing to gamble your time and comfort to get a chance of “winning” a discounted droid.

    We either win or we lose… di naman pwedeng win win na lang tayo lagi. We’re dissing each other over a phone, somebody outside megamall doesn’t even have P50.00 to buy a decent meal for her child.

    Christmas na.. Peace be with all us… Amen.

    read somewhere someone was able to claim her well deserved half-proced optimus one after making close to hundreds phone calls to LG, try demand to talk to their country officials, don’t waste your time talking to the front-liners, try & see if you also deserve and lucky as her,
