Nokia C6 Promo Sale: 60% off on November 13




Not to be out-done, Nokia Philippines also has their own 60% off one-day promo for the new Nokia C6. Guess when? It’s November 13, 2010 at 1 to 3PM. See poster below.

On November 13, 2010 at 1pm to 3pm, participating stores will sell the Nokia C6 at 60% off. That’s from an SRP of Php15,100 down to just Php6,490.

Stores include Nokia Stores in SM Megamall, SM North EDSA, SM Cebu and Gaisano Davo City.

This is obviously a targeted response to the LG Optimus One 50% Promo Sale.

Update: The 60% discount of Php15,100 is actually Php6,040, not the Php6,490 that’s shown on the poster (it’s 57.02% discount). I clarified this with Nokia PR and they said that DTI was the one who approved it and it’s possible that a 12% VAT was applied after the 60% discount. If that’s the case though, it should have been Php6,040 + 12% VAT which is Php6,764.80.

My guess is that Nokia wanted to match the sale price of LG Optimus One at Php6,490. The applied discount on the C6 was actually 57.02% but it would not look good from a marketing perspective so they just rounded it off to 60%.

  1. So not exactly competing with the LG Optimus One sale right?

    … yep.

  2. Culinarian_mom says:

    Waaaaaahhhhh! How about SM Pampanga or Clark????? Please include these malls…..huhuhu! :(

  3. Manix says:

    Dang! with longer sale hours

  4. Mark says:

    These are for those who can’t get the optimus one (limited units) and still has 6,500 in their pocket… Kind of a smart move… hahaha

  5. Arvee says:

    Slower processor + Symbian + lagging issues = I’d still prefer going at LG’s sale event.

  6. Arvee says:

    @Mark AGREED!

  7. darzki says:

    holy cow bibili ako neto!

  8. Jan says:

    so that’s it mr. abe? baka naman we have to purchase something first before we can buy the C6 for 6.5k?

  9. @Arvee – I agree with you.

  10. Fleeb says:

    @Jan, if that would be true, then it will be a major backlash.

  11. JepX says:

    just called nokia mall of asia… d nila alam
    about the C6, ang promo lang daw nila for Nov.13
    is for the model C3.

  12. JepX says:

    I also called Nokia Megamall. Even they don’t know
    (yet) about the promo.. nakasulat pa naman branch nila sa participating stores… maybe ni-rush nila
    tong promo just to compete with LG…

  13. Chester Talato says:

    Meron kaya stock..pila nanaman ito sa mall.

    Let’s get it on, you know!

  15. Manuel says:

    I’ll get this over the LG Optimus if it’s the C6-01. Sadly, based on the pictures, it’s C6-00 :( Panira yung resistive touch screen.

  16. boplaksnakelot says:

    so which is better then? the LG running on android or Nokia running on symbian .. i’d like to hear your thoughts =D

  17. chino says:

    Nokia. maganda camera

  18. Shut up! says:

    Ndi kau tlga mkuntento,.ndi naman ata kau bibili..buti nga nagsale p e…pag ayaw nyu tumahimik nlng kau…

  19. elysse says:

    second choice ko to. :)

  20. JKisaragi says:

    I think I’ll get one instead of the Optimus One as my secondary unit. Android na rin kasi Primary ko (SGS).

    And besides, I don’t think the resistive screen is a dealbreaker here as it does have a full qwerty keyboard and a d-pad. So one has the option of not using the screen at all. Hehe.

  21. x says:

    sana promo din ang samsung…

  22. x says:

    sana mag promo din ang samsung…

  23. Jan says:

  25. G-man says:

    i have an important question:

    is the c6 that they’re selling the original c6 or the c6-01?

  26. G-man says:

    @x

    yeah sana nga meron din!

  27. JKisaragi says:

    Samsung AND/OR Sony Ericsson with their Aino or Vivaz.

    That would be a fun day indeed. :)

  28. Ram says:

    a good move to reduce the congestion on both parties(nokia/LG)… hahaha.

  29. elle says:

    ehh, sounds good, but i really wanted the LG ONE!! :'((((

  30. G-man says:

    oops sorry about my question earlier

    I looked again at the add and saw the 5mp cam.
    i was hoping it was c6-01 which has better specs than the original

  31. ila says:

    gusto ko rin malaman yung about sa c3, lol

  32. harv3y says:

    60% of P15,100.00 is P6,040.00 not P6,490 :(

    I’ll be going to megamall on saturday. hopefully I get a chance on LG Optimus One.

  33. dongv says:

    so no wasting of time going to Megamall on Saturday

  34. mr. bogus says:

    sayang… but ill drop by to megamall!!!!!

  35. JepX says:

    Jan – nagkaroon daw sila ng promo before na less 500pesos (only) yung c3. I like the optimus better kaso ang lalayo ng mga LG stores sa amin.

  36. Bakit wla dito sa SM BAGUIO,KAKAINIS NAMAN!

  37. mcast says:

    Hopefully this promo makes it a bit easier to line up for the LG promo. :D

  38. Amao says:

  41. xiahmihime says:

  42. mrkwuzhir says:

    kung mabagal ang c6..ok lng.. kaya may updates ang nokia.. panalo sa support eto… and imagine, from 15k to 6k.. bilhin ko n yan kung mlapet samen yan. imo

  43. Sabana says:

    Since I have no real intention of using the LG as a primary device, considering it’s lack of Flash among other things, I’d rather get this for its resaleability.

  44. gUrLaLiEn says:

    una LG… tapos nokia… sana HTC naman :D. pag nag 50% sale ang HTC, tapos na ang dilemma ko! :D

  53. xiahmihime says:

  54. simplynice93 says:

  60. Marck says:

    Napadaan ako sa SM north edsa knina, nagulat ako wala clang ad di ka2lad nung LG meron nang poster at sa harap pa ng concert so malamang dadagsain un 2morrow. Ngtanong ako sa saleslady ng pabulong kung 22o ung promo bukas and she said confidently; “Yes sir, 22o po ung promo bukas”

  61. xiahmihime says:

    it’s legit. i just called nokia hotline. spoke with a rep. :)

  62. jets says:

    pwede ba swipe or credit card transactions dito?!? hahahaha =P

  63. TrueStory says:

    GUYS,

    PLESE DON’T EFFIN USE CREDIT CARD!!! KUNG PEDE MAN, SUPER TAGAL NG TRANSACTION NIYAN SAYANG SA ORAS!!! OK?

  64. Emilia says:

    Halatang minadali ni Nokia at hindi pinag-isipan para lang matapatan ang sale ah. Kung 60% off, eh di P6,040 dapat, not P6,490. Tsk. Pano nakalusot sa DTI ‘to?

    Papasa ‘to na false advertisement. Calling the attention of Ad Board!

    At ganun na ba ka desperado Nokia na kelangan tapatan LG, eh kung iisipin, ang liit lng ng LG kumpara sa kanila. Di ba number 1 naman Nokia? Don’t tell me takot na sila sa LG, ang layo naman ata ng ranking nila. Kung si Samsung pa siguro nag sale at hindi si LG, maiintindihan ko pa.

  65. dyames says:

    wag lang nila sasayangin oras ko … pucha … ipagkakalat ko na wala ng maniniwala sa mga ganito

  66. crap says:

    to those who are planning to buy this crap phone, spare urselves…i’ve undergone a lot of headaches becoz of this phone. no wonder they are selling it for 6k only. I bought one a month ago for 15k nd until now it’s still in nokia care center and to think its my 3rd replacement phone(all defective!). Now it has been fourth because they have replaced the inside of my phone like totally different phone but before I can even sign the release paper, it turned off again! pls read the forum first before buying this. I have scanned all the job orders filed for my c6. yes its cheap but it’s not effin worth the headache!!!
    read this. anajan yung saakin, iniscan ko yung docs ko, hindi pa kasali yung today na JO nanaman! for the 4th effin time.
    here is the link for the scanned JO filed for my nokia c6

  67. Gar says:

    Cool. a re-badged N97 mini. :D

  68. Anthony says:

    Is this confirmed? I called Nokia Store SM North and they told me that they are yet to receive a memo from the corporate office regarding the sale. :-|

  69. rhiz says:

    wee . i am going to purchased this phone in sm north edsa :]]

  71. kize21 says:

  72. omg says:

    nokia only has 50 units for sale, hence line is getting shorter.

  73. Pipo says:

    LG: Come and try Android!

    Nokia: Shut up! F*ck Android. Symbian forever!

    Hahaha.

  74. pogiako says:

    Ang haba ng pila dito sa Cyberzone…SM North EDSA!

    I talked doon sa sales clerk ….ang dami ng nagrereklamo dahil sa dami ng tao.

    Nice experience for me to see first hand the people QQ for nokia C6.

    Sa December na lang ako bibili!

  75. Mark Tesch says:

    30 units were for sale in SM Cebu. All sold out in 26 minutes. Many disappointed people:p Fail.

  76. superboink says:

    C6-00 po yan, not the C6-01… not yet available yung C6-01

  77. Fact: ONLY 60 C6 units for SM North EDSA; they should’ve declared it earlier, hindi na sana ko pumila. Pakyu Nokia @ SM North!

  78. gadget_freak says:

    I am one of those 60 people who got the Nokia C6! Thanks Nokia Store SM North EDSA. Yey! :)

  79. mr. bogus says:

    SA MGA PUMIPILA SA MEGAMALL AT NORTH EDSA:
    BUMIBILI BA KAYO NG NFA RICE??? SHORTAGE BA?? HEHEHEHE

  80. pattynessy says:

    @gadget_freak…. i got one in sm north edsa i think it is so sad that the phone store in 5th floor really cut the line, from 1–>person to 7 person my god! …

  81. Bryan says:

    This promo of theirs is plain bullshit!!! they shouldn’t be posting 1-3pm… they are deceiving the public by saying that there is a time frame for you to buy. but reality is, they have limited stocks…. Cleary, they have violated DTI rules, they should have announced First 100 on the line from 1-3 and not plainly 1-3.

    Wouldn’t be using NOKIA on this lifetime or the next….

  86. Ronnel says:
