This is exactly why I will never own apple devices. If samsung indeed sim lock it then I will most certainly upgrade with HTC or LG
AnonD-37985, 27 Sep 2013Gelvin I can understand you ..
You saying maybe samsung will be like today nokia in future.... moreI have no believe overall. I was just stating "what-could-happen" and as being a student of Economics, I can clearly see when there is a rise, there is a fall. A company always face recession, recovery and prosperity. It's just the way you are understanding my statement which is in-fact the contrary.
"All I was saying is that wait-and-see and stop assuming what the future is" And those were just examples which I have given and I was also assuming you would have understand it as an example but....
Will the loss of sales to customers out weigh the profits increase from regional price variation? I suspect that people will start to get import region unlocked phones from the cheapest region and profits will fall overall.
This is sort of good news for competitors and also bad news. Regional price variation will lead other manufacturers to lose out in the lower price markets but they will have a better reputation than Samsung...
Bad move overall as there is a development, manufacturing and shipping cost to region locking all to and maximize profits per unit. Just continue to make the best products for each price bracket and the profits will always be healthy

What the f#*k??? It will only limit samsung freaks in some part of the globe from buying their choice samsung phones...its not fair, I think its pointless too

You are the one who said Samsung will "never be wrong" making a "future" prediction so at the end, it's not me but it's you who started assuming the future....

Think about present.
Who knows me or you will die today.?
so... if I have a new Samsing and move from Europe to Canada, that means I will need to buy a new phone in Canada?

Besides, Samsung generates most of it's revenue from Smartphone's manufacturing division.

Nokia is 100% depended on mobile phones.
I would say same for Sony and LG ..they are also not only depended on mobile phones.
Instead of selling my used high end phone for peanuts, I send it back home to a member of my family. But with this new policy, it would be impossible to do that.
It's pretty easy to get to the top, but very difficult to stay there.
As I said, nothing is predictable to the actual extent. You can't even say about anything here right now. You aren't someone from the future. Beside, isn't it a Mobile-tech site in which we are arguing and what does it has to do with Fridges or Televisions?
Samsung can be like Nokia or Motorola but what if they emerge as a Monopolist, next year for the next 10 years? Therefore, instead of assuming, why can't just wait and see? Is that hard to believe?
i'm planning to upgrade my Note II to Note III,
but now it looks like i have to wait until Samsung clear this rumor.
