So for the first time in probably 10 years, I'm excited about buying something.
Everything else has been 'Needed' or 'Sort of fun' or I've purchased the one that "Is good enough, but not the best" to save some money.
Now, the TCL KeyOne is about to be released here.
It's a thing of dreams. Every review is positive, every user is happy, and best of all, it's selling out everywhere it's been released, it's THAT popular.
Finally, less ' boring glass slabs'.
It's taking all of my will not to rant, and jump in joy about something actually innovative again.
Anyway; my soul sunk a little when I heard the price point is going to be $899 at JbHiFi (likely the only retailer).
Direct currency conversion should have had it about $720; and everyone was expecting "The Australia Tax" to take that to $799.
But..... $899. I mean, maybe they just know their audience, because I'll be lined up on launch day to buy one even if it was $2k, but it still feels like a slap in the face.
Is it a wholesaler problem?
Who's to blame for this constant over-pricing of devices here?
