Their statement reads:

 Thank you so much for the overwhelming support for the ZTE Mobile Sales Promo.

We appreciate the efforts made by the thousands who went to our kiosks and concept store yesterday. We did not expect such an overflow of interested buyers, hence the shortage. We are very sorry for the inconvenience. Truly, we made a mistake in underestimating the response and we appeal for your understanding and compassion. As a responsible organization, we are finding ways to address the concerns of those who painstakingly queued to enjoy the offer yet went home disappointed.

As we are humbled by the reception the public has given our campaign, together with MSI-ECS, our distributor, we are committing ourselves to coming up with better initiatives, more aggressive promotions and up to date mobile devices that will benefit more Filipinos in the coming days.

Again, our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience and disappointment we have caused.

{ZTE Philippines, MSI-ECS}

    Naniwala naman kasi kayo sa post ni yuga eh paid post din naman yung article nila about the sale. Walang fine print na nakalagay na limited stocks sila.

      Buti pinayagan kang mag-comment ganun, no?

    Again, sorry for the inconvenience we have caused blah, blah,blah. The person who wrote the ad was on crack and have forgotten about the ‘limited quantity intended for sale’.
    If you truly believed that we will sell all of our stock for that model for P10K discount, then you are all on crack !! (Nobody gives away something for nothing or less. Remember that)
    We made a mistake, you’ll got screwed.
    But the past is the past. We can not change the past, and can only apologize……

    Yours truly,

      Pumunta na lang sila sa last day ng Xiaomi ngayon sa Megamall. Kahit 5k+ yung unit garantisado naman ang quality. Or kung magtitiyaga sila, ipon sila konti para sa Asus or Alcatel models.

    Who wrote the press release? Looks like a rookie in the marketing team wrote this.

    They underestimated the turn out? I say, fire the whole marketing team.

    ZTE didn’t resolve the issue at all and had no plan to make good its statement based on its press release!

    They cared less and preferred losing would-be customers who were not able to buy during the promo.
