Apple has announced the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S will go on sale in Thailand on October 25, 2013. The prices, of course, are ridiculously expensive – the iPhone 5S in gold, silver or grey will sell for 23,900 baht for the 16GB model, 27,900 baht for the 32GB model and 31,900 baht for the 64GB model — or $770, $900 and $1,030 for a cheap plastic phone made in China. The iPhone 5Cs aren’t that much cheaper.
All I can say about the Apple iPhone 5C and 5S on sale in Thailand is, seriously, who cares? Unless you have more money than sense, buying a telephone made in China for less than 6,000 baht ($199) and then being sold with a huge markup makes you nothing more than “a fool easily parted with his money”.
Me? I still love my $20 Samsung, and I’ll be sticking with that.
