Just to remind you, I have  stated low-cost iPhone, would do well in India. I never mentioned what price should be or specs.

Btw: average personal ibel case takes 10 years to complete in India , so make my day!

 

Oh, I've no intention of pursuing legal action against you; merely asserting the existence of the occurrence itself and defining the ramifications.

Indeed. This is the part where you refuse to answer the question despite being perfectly willing to do so if it were about Samsung and how "superior" they are in your market, somehow.

 

I'll ask again. Were Apple to release an unlocked, off-contract iPhone for $399, what do you believe the anecdotal reaction in your market would be?

Sincerely,

 

Samsung¡

 

Seriously, Samsung is spending millions and millions on advertising. Every satellite channel I surf is covered from head to toe with Samsung ads. The ads are everywhere... television, radio, print, web, you name it. You can't go five minutes without seeing a Samsung Galaxy S4 ad somewhere. I was getting real nervous about this blitzkrieg let loose by Samsung. Apparently my nervousness was misplaced.

 

 

When Samsung released the actual product, was there lines around the block with customers waiting to buy them?  Not that I'm aware of.

 

Apple has traditionally had long lines waiting for the first day, and then shorter lines for several weeks until they got most of the early adopters taken care of.

 

I guess not many people are lining up to buy the S4, so they have to advertise the thing to death.

 

One thing Samsung as is they sell in more countries through far more cellular carriers.  So they have anywhere from all of the major players down to the little whole in the wall carriers in more countries, which is why they have decent Global sales, but not much in the US.

For real fun watch Siri trying to understand a Scotsman talking his version of English.

If you need any example of legally suable libel you just have to look at most of Tallest Skill's comments, which are mostly full of it, e.g. in this thread:

So the articles about just such events were… lying, I suppose? Or maybe you have proof they didn't do that.

Thanks Geek, he does go off on tangent and forgets what the actual discussion was about. He gets on his high mule (not horse..lol) and starts throwing comments, when no one especially me has made that statement. 

As for your answer to $399 question, it depend ons the iPhone being released, If it is 3s or 4 version, then forget it too old a spec and people will not feel there up to the times. If it is 4s or even 5 (after 7th generation iPhone has been launched), then I can see massive push in terms of revenue/profit in India. 

 

STOP using the word 'off-contract' there are no contract schemes in India, it is all unlocked phones as stated numerous times before. There maybe monthly EMIs, but you can still go to another mobile company and just pay off the phone, no actual call contract is available.

 

Does that answer your question and please read carefully, before blowing a nut or too.1smile.gif

Absolutely hilarious. I tip my hat to you. 1oyvey.gif

Then it shouldn't matter at all, should it. How nice.


Does that answer your question…


Oh, it tells me all I need to know about your position.

    Does matter since you trying to push your opinion, but you do not know the area you actually discussing.

I really wish you hadn't picked up all these buzzwords. They give you an excuse for ignoring the argument at hand where you didn't before.


You've changed your argument since we first had this conversation. You weren't fine with the iPhone 4S then. You are now.

 

I rest my case; you agree with me.
