Why does this big telecom company here in the Philippines does not want or even the Nokia Philippines does not have any plans to release here in the Philippines?

http://www.inq7.net/inf/2003/oct/13/inf_1-1.htm

I'm so excited of the release... but expected... there's no ads to be found about N-Gage...

just for my own opinion, i guess why they dont have any plans about N-Gage?

because its to CHEAP! comparing from their selling price of N3300!!! its almost $300 USD and N-Gage is only $300 USD

grrrrr... how bout i give you some advise and marketing strategy about your future plans for N-Gage??? :D

for GLOBE Telecom, as for now... you dont even have a plan to compare to Smart's Addict Moile!

this is the time to make your move!

Maka something about your G-Plan specialy suited for N-Gage and make your GPRS consumable like Addict Mobile!

because N-Gage needs GPRS connection to connect to Nokia N-Gage Arena, and its useless if you keep on blocking WAP sites!

for SMART, i just don't like your sevices... :D it's ok with me if you don't have a Nokia N-Gage as your front line products... but if you have on your product line, i guess GLOBE Telecom will make there move...

for SUN Cellular, if you have a piece of it, i'm surely go and switch to your company! but of course... just to be sure that you offer your N-Gage with 1 year warranty because it will be needing a lot of firmware upgrades and i dont want to waste my money for a phone without a 1 year warranty


to ALL TELECOME COMPANIES IN THE PHILIPPINES, make up your minds NOW!!! Before its too LATE!!!

I think he got the N-Gage sim-free,so his plan is irelevant ;)

BTW:They are pricing the N-Gage 380-390 euros which is a lot more then 300dollars.What do you think about that!

I got it for SGD548 without a line before the october 7th launch, i thought it should be pre-ordered so I went to the Nokia Center but they gave me the gamedeck on the same day with a free soccer ball and bag :D

I heard a lot of problems with those gamedecks that were released on October 7th with a 3.42 firmware version, so far I haven't encountered any, my firmware version is 3.30...
