Speed, customer loyalty, marketing logic, sales strategy, frustration ?

I am an iphone fan. Love it.
I must admit Samsung had tempted me many times over, but i am still loyal and having my iphone 5.

I was looking forward to getting the iphone 6 or maybe even 6+. Unfortunately, these are not available in Indonesia yet. Helloooooo !!!!! How  can this be when the potential of mobile gadget here in Indonesia is so huge ??

Has Apple considered Indonesia a low priority country ??
This has happenned before too on their past launches on iphone 4, 5,5s and 5c as well as mini ipads. Indonesia has always been behind time in receiving these new launches.

The samsung galaxy note 4 (in my opinion) is Samsung’s answer to iphone 6+. It will be launch in Jakarta 24 Oct. They have worked with Citibank and Indosat offering attractive discounts to customers.

Now if I had a chance to get an iphone 6 today, I would.

However, as I could not….. I have now signed up a pre-order for Galaxy Note 4 and i will now be an Android user instead. Will be then getting my Galaxy Note 4 end of this month.

But hey I am just one customer. Perhaps other loyal iphone customers have the patience to wait or they could take a plane and shop in Singapore or even get the iphone 6 via the black market by paying 30-50 % more ?

Apple is a brilliant company and i am sure they have smart people running the company.
And i am sure they have thought it over carefully why the sales of their new product in Indonesia is purposely scheduled 2-3 months later than our neighboring Asean country.

What are the reasons ? Better profits ? Marketing sensation ? Long term higher volume sales projection via launch phases ? Stocks distribution challenge ? production capacity / capability ?

I too wish to learn of their strategy if given a a chance to have a better understanding.
Perhaps I too can also be a smarter strategist then.

Well …. anyways …. for now …….. as I am only human …. driven by psychological inherent behaviors … I want my new toy now … and I want it today.
Hence …. I have to be unfaithful.

So ….. Hello¬† SEXY S Pen.
Looking forward to my relationship with you.
