Here in India Q5 costs 25,000($411) Maybe that's why this ain't selling like hotcakes.

Funny how it's only being launched in its home market of Canada, mid-August, but been available in emerging ones for some time now. Apart from Asian markets, also here, since 27/06/13: http://mybroadband.co.za/news/...m-in-sa.html
