Hi everyone, as always I’d like to rant on the following: greediness and insanity of Russian retailers. The latest issue of Svyaznoy’s catalogue is a great example of utterly insane management and completely moronic pricing amongst almost any hardware company here.
I was pleased by 6 tablets announced to be sold by the retailer this month, all 6 from Sammy, Asus and Acer. I was happy to see my beloved low-cost Acer Iconia W510 ($499 in US) (previews (1) and (2))! But here it’s priced as some crazy-ass magnesium-made premium ultra-fucking-machine. And that’s for Clover Trail! No way!
Asus Vivo Tab RT (WinRT)
Hi there, Vivo Tab RT =) Long time to see! Had a pretty good review both at the Verge and Engadget. Got a sweet price for the US as well ($499+). Russian Retail Price, anyone? $1130 And that’s for the RT tab! Are you out of your mind? Really? Ok, moving on.
