Apple don't give a damn for the brazilian market. They launch their iphone and ipads 4-5 months after US. Most brazilian buy their idevices when travelling to USA because the price here is ridiculous, the unlocked iphone 5 costs $1150, on the other hand the galaxy SIII costs $750, also unlocked.
Anonymous, 06 Feb 2013Lol this is nothing to do with stealing or 'steeling' as you call it. It is just about rights ... morei must admit this one's comments is absurd. pls excuse this one for android fans and don't generalize.
mageshkm, 06 Feb 2013Nothing any important with this, just forget the market of Brazil and stop shipping any produ... moreApple would never stop selling in Brazil, as it is one of the most profitable markets on the planet. They will most likely rebrand it, so they don´t have to pay royalties. By the way, stop being so ignorant about things.
To our friend magesh.. apple gets a LOT of money from Brazils market.. did u know its one of the most expensive iphones around the world? Have any idea of how much it costs here? well the cheapest version costs 1000 dollars. Yep. A THOUSAND DOLLARS (i mean the iphone 4s without carrier contract.. the 4S with contract doesnt comes for less than 600 dollars. The top of the line iphone 5 64gb costs the bargain of U$1600,00 (off contract)!!! No u didnt missread it..
and u know whats the best part? It sells more than water in a desert.
[deleted post]I'm assuming that these Fandroids have a firm understanding of copyright law, and how each country enforces it?
Though not. Guffaw.
Anonymous, 06 Feb 2013They steel everything plain and simple. The orientals sold for the IPAD name, but I don't thin... moreLol this is nothing to do with stealing or 'steeling' as you call it. It is just about rights to a name. In Brazil. The other company had the rights before Apple. They are just defending that, and never accused Apple of stealing it lol. Funny Fandroids can't read.
Love reading Fandroid comments. It's like a Mr Ignorant championship, each trying to outdo the other.
Android Man, 06 Feb 2013oh dear the shoes on the other foot. see how like getting sued for copyright theft. like they ... moreYup. Except they actually stole unlike just accusing Samsung because they were doing better.
hahaha...crapple the copycat of mobile industry worldwide...
all they do is to steal other people's idea...that's what they call innovative?....hahahaha...
oh dear the shoes on the other foot. see how like getting sued for copyright theft. like they claimed samsung have done. apple is going the down kermit. ha ha
they didnt got iphone name to begin with they bought it from CISCO
No big deal really, as if people can't tell the difference. Just re-brand it Apple phone in Brazil. In fact, the rarity might make it a collectors item.t
mageshkm, 06 Feb 2013Nothing any important with this, just forget the market of Brazil and stop shipping any produ... moreNo. It's a stolen name. They should be forced to globally change the stolen name. Then they should start inventing their own things instead of worrying about patenting the way the tables line up in their mall look a like stores.
They steel everything plain and simple. The orientals sold for the IPAD name, but I don't think anyone is backing down on the Iphone name. They should take Apple all the way and legally make them change their name. Of course they and the courts will argue they should pay royalties instead...they should've though of that before steeling. Poison that crapple
Nothing any important with this,
just forget the market of Brazil and stop shipping any product of apple to Brasil. They will automatically remove that rights to the other company with emergency concern. Apple does not need to purchase that rights for start sale on their iPhone devise.
This is not any kind of important matter,
