..how demeaning, how utterly arrogant of Apple. India,there are better phones out there at half the price..ie, the Lumia 525. Apple phones are over-rated and overpriced, always have been and still are.
Taking the micket,,apple grow up and stop overcharging for products that are old and use same components as any other phone...Aluminium is not expensive your just a rip off company and THATS WHY YOU HAVE SUCH HUGE PROFITS,THATS HOW MUCH YOU HAVE RIPPED YOUR CUSTOMERS OFF.
I agree. They should lower the price of their products in 3rd-world countries like India. Unless they don't want to sell their products well there.
This is big insult to East Indians. Apple thinks East Indians lags behind in technology so an outdated phone suits them best.
What is the whining all about? If Indians doesnt want this device then don't buy it for sure it will make this Apple's strategy a complete failure. Actions speaks louder that words.
Regardless of specs or the fact it is 2 years old it will sell because people have heard of it. They even ask for it when asked if there is anything they would like as a gift.
Apple you have just lost one of your biggest markets by insulting indians and pricing it too high. Typical American bull.
Apple, poor strategy !!!...not going to work in India...and going to loose your market.
Apple has lost it...we dont need outdated phones in our country, we dont mind paying high price for good quality phone with great innovation like wat lumia devices r giving now.... i love my lumia 1020.
Xiaomi's phone : Hongmi is just about $132.(799 RMB)
4.7 inch IPS, 720P, quad-core
really a slap in the face of indian buyers with outdated junk at strip price. Hope no one buys.
Well, according to India's HDI index, it is a third world country.
They should price it way cheaper. When you compare the price of the Motorola G, Ascend devices, The Venice, and many same/cheaper price devices with on par/better hardware and most of them way newer...Even at $230ish or whatever it is it is still way over priced for how old and out of date it is.
they have no more quality control with Steve jobs gone, he made sure the company wasn't doing the same shit everone else does.
in sales, the stupid one is not the one who asks, stupid is the one who gives. i am sure at this stupid price, many bollywood kitsch-stars like salman khan and some escort ladies will fill the pockets of apple,buying blindly any apple crap beautifully wrapped
