iPods (+PSP) price check

Postby lesukendar » Sat, 20 Dec 2008 9:25 am

price checked iPod nano 16G at Sim Lim Square, S$295 including tax. How's this price compare to other places that you know of? How much is iPod classic 120G? and is it true that these product are cheaper in Hong Kong?

is there any place to sell used UMDs for PSP? and can we buy unused old UMDs beside through trading with other people?


thanks

apple prices are pretty much fixed, so check http://store.apple.com/hk for hk prices.

Just compared the prizes for Ipod touch in singapore and hk, and the difference is about 50$, furthermore i saw that apple is officially selling the iphone in HK without any contract or locking. Why that? And Why only in HK??

Angry board can be useful, too, sometimes.

Here is a reference from there.

I bought an officially unlocked 3G 16GB iphone yesterday, from Changi Airport. No contact - nothing.
The airport is allowed to sell officially unlocked phones. I live in Indonesia and was on my way to India. I put in my Indonesia SIM Card in Singapore, roamed onto the Singtel network, went onto my iTunes account at the Silver Kris lounge, upgraded the phone to firmware 2.2, flew on to India, downloaded some programs from the iTunes store. Everything works - its fantastic. Downside - USD 1,000. You can get OFFICIALLY unlocked iphones from the HK Apple store, but they will only ship to HK addresses. USD 800 for 16GB. Hope this helps.

Well, I find the poster a bit suspect though. He put in Indonesian SIM Card and upgrade in Singapore. Then buy some more apps in India. He must be a rich guy, or he just real dimwit. Roaming charges per kB is about US$ 20-50. He must be spending thousands for those activities.

Got what I mean by suspicious? :P

i wont advise getting it from sim ling square.
pay abit more for ipod nano and you get a peace of mind. Coz to my knowledge many places are selling export set, i.e. warranty is not by apple.

Anyway, anyone has any idea where to get iphone.
