Guys, I'm from Argentina, this government idea really affect us. The same rules are for computers for example, HP and Dell only sells one model on the country.
This is not a temporary policy, the major part of the imports has been stopped by the government.
LG, Samsung and others already assembles their devices here, but the prices are the same if the product is imported from another country.
Here it's an example: Samsung Galaxy S II: price around AR$2400 = USD 550 with an expensive plan from the carriers.
Blackberry already sign and agreement and continue selling their phones here. Btw Apple cannot sell the iPhone.
Thanks for the note, sorry for my bad english :)
AnonD-977, 29 Dec 2011So what about all the people involved in warehousing, transporting, selling, taxing and servic... morethey gona sell now nokia and samsung. unless rim and apple get on track and build some factories on argentina
Over here we are currently "celebrating" an april fools kind of day, so Im kinda confused if this is an actual news or a joke.
So what about all the people involved in warehousing, transporting, selling, taxing and servicing these phones?
Should they just be sacked because there are no jobs for them any more?
Stupid, short sighted move from Argentina.
iguano, 28 Dec 2011this is not about usa or canada, its about brasil vs argentina,
apple and rim have factorie... moreI am glad you liked my city. However you are not watching the whole scenario about this move.
Phones are being just ensambeled in the south of patagonia. Most factories are located in Rio Grande city.
I think is a good idea, and all countries should do the same, not only in technologie,but all kind of stuff.
In that way you'll be assuring jobs for most of the people
Nice move from Argentinian Government. Phonemakers should be able to boost local economy than only selling their stuff. I do agree what the Argentinians did.
iguano, 28 Dec 2011this is not about usa or canada, its about brasil vs argentina, apple and rim have factorie... moreLOL, argentina fighting for supremacy in the south american economy?? They can barely sustain their own economy... BTW, i guess you have never been to sao paulo.
Now that's how a government creates jobs, supports her economy & forces businesses to cater to the people instead of the other way around
this is not about usa or canada, its about brasil vs argentina,
apple and rim have factories in brasil, and sell the phones on argentina, they are the economic powers of sudamerica fighting for the supremacy
my last vacation i visited buenos aires, i was shocked, its a wonderfull biggest city, its like sudamerican newyork
i can see a global trade embergo coming. populist govt now has ruined argentine economy
regs, 28 Dec 2011why so? why comparing to north korea and not to china? look what's happened to china - 9-10% e... moreArtificial growth, devaluation of currency, foreign corporations can't resist, Western countries can't compete and suffer as a result.
Once the West falls, China will no longer be able to play the devaluation game, revolution becomes inevitable(stuff becomes expensive).
Hi, 28 Dec 2011Wow this is really bad for their country look what happens to north Korea
At night times... morewhy so? why comparing to north korea and not to china? look what's happened to china - 9-10% economy growth for 20 years.
it's actually a very good move, except one thing - i'm not sure it's allowed in WTO, so they will have to lift the ban very soon.
[deleted post]Depends whether you follow the concept of people owning land vs the state.
Those that follow the idea of freedom, prefer the former.
