We in Germany have only 252 "Media Märkte" (Popular Store like BestBuy/ Magnolia in US) with a much higher population rate to km² than US with our 82 Million people. So I guess for a Country with 50 Million, 1400 stores is an huge number.
Sure, but the question had to do with how many units LG was able to make, no matter *where* they are sold. Production is the most discussed downside in the news on these things. The 1400 stores, even if they were shipped and sold to each and every one (which they're not claiming), isn't that big of a number to be impressed by. But, as I said, all it likely means *anyway* is that there are 1400 stores able to place an order. They could just as easily have listed every store, fish stand, and noodle cart there was in Korea, and it would be just as indicative of not much
. Wish it meant more, but I don't think that number means a whole lot.
They did what I would have done in their place. Listed out the possible shipping points, so that the world knows that it isn't only available in special insider store next to headquarters, and say no more than that.Edited by tgm1024 - 1/2/13 at 2:22pm
