    No offense, but you guys need to hire an editor or something. This, and October 10th-16th is SEVEN days. Don't believe me? Count how many numbers there are: 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16. 7*10 = 70 Galaxy S2s. Also, "not negligible" implies that the number IS material. I got what you were trying to say, but the language is off.

    Either way, this was a good find. Samsung is loldumb if they think 70 units at a 99% subsidized price will help drive their business in any meaningful way. Definitely gave me a good laugh.

    Wow... Seriously, you guys believes a multinational corporation capability is opening up just 1 store? The capital available for Samsung they can open multiple stores next to Apple, not just 1 store. Hell they can do this to all Apple Store because there is not that many around the world.
    This is just a reseller that got the rights to use Samsung name.

    I would just like to point out to you Phillip that here in Australia we don't have upfront costs for phones! The $2 selling price is for an outright unlocked no contract phone meaning, what about $800 off the retail price? Our phones are either free on contract or a small monthly handset repayment is added to the contract fee if needed.Still though it's a no deal because right opposite that Apple store (Australia's biggest and leading Apple store) Is the head office and main store for Telstra which is Australia leading network and together they are holding a street parade for the release of the 4S that store will be go completely unnoticed.

    Of course, new Apple devices sell out immediately in Australia as well.

    Also, my scientific study of iPhone sales in Australia (by watching what people are using on the train when I go to work :-) seems to indicate that the iPhone 4 has grabbed a 90% share of the handheld computer and mobile phone market in the last year. So if Samsung want to tackle their (lack of) market-share challenge head-on, Australia seems like a good place to start.

    I wasn't referring to Apple I was referring to the Samsung store as I did post that 2 major outlets for the iPhone right opposite each other having a parade and everything.

    oh I was at this store, when I went on vacation...and holy sh** that was a huge a** store. That Samsung store looks pretty ridiculous next to that Apple store...but I have to say that a $2 phone there is a good buy cause everything there is expensive

    if it were a re-seller, i don't think they would be giving up phones for free. This smells like a marketing stunt gone wrong. If sammy really wanted to change people's mind then they should have made the galaxy 2 with better materials. Yes the gal 2 is good but it looks cheap. Iphone 4s is not a big improvement over the Iphone 4 but it still has the same good looks.
