$299 preorder w/ free shipping
Android27, 21 Feb 2015Seriously, had it not been for your comment I'd have given up the last ounce of hope I'd been ... moreI think it's not Asus' fault- it's the reseller's fault for giving such a high price.
Sorry for intruding..i am not from india...but hey...u really believe at those scums of aliexpress.wait till release and check amazon,adorama,other official websites...don't get to those scums.most of the stuff they sell is not half good an object made in as italian says:a cannicati(a lost place)...
i think this is a sabotage,& hope asus will fix this issue or else over million of people will be scammed or cheated of this pre-order
Praveen, 21 Feb 2015can i know when it will launch in India officially and what would be it rate?Late April and expect bout INR 19,000 for the 4gB variant with 32gB ROM
Stop freaking out people!
The $470 tag was by ONE retailer!
If you would kindly take a minute to check on AliExpress now, you'll find that there are a couple more sellers offering the 4GB variant with 32GB of ROM for USD 292 !! And of course, these are reputed sellers.
Its all madness and nothing more !!!!
Fab new phone comes out and the manufacturer hypes it up to the limit and everyone goes crazy . good marketing ASUS . and a nice looking phone for the price !!!!!
But and its a big one its not a top of the range Sony, HTC, Samsung or any of the other premium models . so people need to calm down !
The reason its starting at $199 is because its trying to compete with the big boys and that would be impossible if the price reaches $400 + for the 4gb version as no one will but it - Asus has a fantastic opportunity to steal some of the premium mobile phone sales market this year buy only if the price is right !
Relax, Chill Out and wait the price will be very competitive otherwise they will not sell the amount phones to the mass market that they want to do which is there plan and sales strategy !
Anyone that pre orders at a vastly inflated price wants their head testing :-)
Spanish Fan, 21 Feb 2015????? ASUS Have not increased the price ?????
I cannot see what all the panic is about - it... moreSeriously, had it not been for your comment I'd have given up the last ounce of hope I'd been clinging on to, all this while.
Thank you for pointing out that it was none other than the stupid reseller, AliExpress, which doesn't even represents the accurate retail price.
Note to everybody: This is NOT the official price, instead it's some lame ass reseller quoting a random price.
