You can get Grand 2, xperia zr and the lenovo k900 and Nokia 920 for almost the same price. Those who buy this will undoubtedly be isheep. Heck most of them won't buy. One must be real desperate to own an apple product to buy this phone. posted on 05 Feb 2014, 01:27 0 13. anirudhshirsat97 (Posts: 408; Member since: 24 May 2011) Although for 12-15k it's a good phone though. But no way apple will sell it at those prices. posted on 05 Feb 2014, 03:56 0 16. Finalflash (Posts: 3712; Member since: 23 Jul 2013) They're poor people pretending to be rich.

If Apple plays its cards right this year, it has the opportunity to grab a large number of new iPhone customers in developing markets, where traditionally it has been weak. According to a new survey released by Upstream and Ovum, of 4504 consumers in Brazil, China, India, Nigeria and Vietnam, Apple is the most desired brand of mobile devices in those countries. 32% of those surveyed want an Apple branded mobile device, followed by the 29% that covet a smartphone or tablet produced by Samsung. 13% are holding out for a Nokia model. In China, where the Apple iPhone is now available from the world's largest carrier in China Mobile, 42% want an Apple iPhone or iPad compared to the 32% wishing for a Samsung device.Last year, Samsung topped this list with Nokia second and Apple in third. Despite the survey results, Android devices activated in those countries add up to 296,493, trouncing the 90,184 iOS units activated in the same locations. Functionality was the top reason given by nearly … [Read more...] about Survey reveals that Apple is the most desired mobile brand in emerging markets

Duan Yongping, the founder of a couple of China-based smartphone manufacturers (Oppo and Vivo) said during an interview with Bloomberg that the iPhone is losing steam in China because Apple won't change its pricing to suit the China market. Mr. Duan points out that the non-installment price of the Apple iPhone 7 in China is equivalent to $780 USD, which is one month's paycheck for some. Even the lower priced Apple iPhone SE can cost as much as the equivalent of $476 USD in China.Apple had a rough 2016 in China as it is no longer one of the top three smartphone manufacturers in the country. Huawei was on top followed by Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi. Apple dropped to fifth place. Duan says that Apple's iPhone business in China suffers from Apple's continued stubbornness. According to the smartphone veteran, Apple continues to seek high profit margins even if that costs them business in countries such as China and India. Apple has already set its sites on India, although the average Indian earns … [Read more...] about Apple too stubborn with iPhone pricing in emerging markets says the founder of Oppo and Vivo
In a bid to expand the use of apps in emerging markets, Opera has come up with App Pass. With the latter, carriers can offer special deals to its subscribers that will allow them to access certain apps for free or for a reduced cost. App Pass works with Opera Max, a browser that uses video and data compression in order to save users as much as 50% of the data normally needed to open and run an app.Opera says that phone manufacturers like Samsung and Micromax have agreed to pre-load App Pass on upcoming models. Once a phone's user opens any app, he sees special deals presented by the carrier. App Pass will benefit those in emerging markets who wouldn't normally be able to download certain apps because of the data required to run them. It benefits Opera as its browsers get more use in emerging markets. And it also provides an opportunity for carriers to sell advertising.Mobile operator Telenor, which operates in Vietnam and in other Asian countries in the region, will be the first … [Read more...] about Opera’s App Pass lets smartphone users in emerging markets use apps with free or discounted data
