Down here in corrupt Serbia all 300$ 400$ phones cost at least 900$.With the Iphone being 1500$..I understand that China is far away...but COME ON.
Even they might ask for somemore ...
India govt sucks
In Latvia MS office 2010 home and business costs about 240$, and iphone 5 about 900$ or even more.
Microsoft & Apple could be Jailed if they don't appear in court.
Bill Gates & Tim Cook, please bribe the Police to allow you both to carry your Nokia Lumia 920 & Apple Iphone 5 respectively.
Tim can atleast kill time by playing Tempple Run 2 and it's FREE.
Bill Gates can listen to Radio.
On the other hand, in useless countries like India, corrupt government officials would take the money and agree with Apple/Microsoft.
You people are "complaining with full belly"! $40 only on price difference?!
Here in my country all these products costs almost three times the price in USD...
The government has no right to demand them to appear, they are a business, they should be able to charge what they want.
koni, 11 Feb 2013did large markets have any role in pricing?,then iphone 5 should only cost $100 in india.....f... moreno, this way i5 should be even higher than $1000 cuz the actual market for apple in india is much less than that, say usa(owing to india's economy, fewer people buy apple products)
koni, 11 Feb 2013did large markets have any role in pricing?,then iphone 5 should only cost $100 in india.....f... moreExactly.. size of market is the biggest crock of shit ever.. Either you make at a profit or you don't.. at the end of the day its made in China.. which is very close to Australia.. so it cant be that hard.. and it aint like 5th Avenue Apple store in NYC, USA is cheap to run!! PFFT!!
I wonder what will Microsoft and Adobe say to the judge.
Apple excuse would be the import cost but china isnt really far from aus
The same thing is happening all over Europe. The American's seem to think that their dollar has the same strength as the Euro and Pound so number is nearly the same and when you convert it, it actually turns-out to be more than in the USA.
Apple, it's time to clearly justify your high priced products, despite lack of features compared to other known smartphone brands.
right question. i agree.these companies sells not special products for high price specially apple
its way to expensive here in st lucia its 1300Usd thats 3500ec excluding vat
in USA cheapest iphone costs 650$, in Poland - 906$
(almost 1.5x more)!!!
Greedy Apple should be punished globally in all markets. +1 for Australian Government
apple fans are always saying, "we never care how much is one iphone costs. we are rich"
is australian parliament, with higher economy than US, slum?
oh come on fanboys. the australian government has seen how greedy apple is. open your eyes too. they want their people not be fooled and thats good job.
