  • The price was too high having in mind the big failure that phone was. The idea was good but they shouldn’t have put any restrictions.

  • Gee!That sum is far from cheap for me. Do you think there are any chance the price has gone down now?

  • You need to add 17.5% vat to that $580 as DHL will be sure to invoice you, but £435 is still cheaper.
