The iPhone in BrusselsOctober 13, 2007
It was rumored for a certain time in different Belgian newspapers, and here’s the proof; the iPhone is for sale in at least one Brussel’s phone shop. In a corner between tons of different phone models I found this bare beauty. Price to pay : 995 Euros!
Probably they solved a simple problem in arithmetic: A return ticket Brussels / New York City (405€), a hotel stay (100€) and a cosy restaurant dinner in Little Italy, say 95€. Next, a stop down the Apple Store’s glass cube on Fifth Avenue for a magic box of iPhone; 399$. The vendor would have some 100€ of pocket money paid by their boss. But it seems to me to be more likely that they shipped some pretty greyish specimen of the iPhone giving themselves some fine gratuity for this holiday season.I didn’t feel myself quite excited – actually this specimen was stored behind glass in a plain show-case. Crazy people that felt the urge to spend 1000€ buying themselves this pretty gadget; feel free to comment!
