Another Paris based Apple Store

This Friday, Apple will be opening up its 11th Apple Store in France and its third in Paris, the country's capital. Usually, when Apple opens a retail unit in a European capital, it chooses an historical location for the store. One current store in Paris is locared near the Louvre This time, the new Paris Apple Store will be located in an upscale mall at 15 Parvis de la Défense, near the north extension of the world famous Champs Elysées. The shopping center has 5 floors with the new Apple Store to be located on the first floor adjacent to a Gap.

Based on the diagram of the store from a mall-directory, Apple has picked up one of the largest retail spaces in the mall. The store will open this Friday at 9am local time and normal business hours ate 9am-8pm Monday through Saturday, and 11am-7pm on Sunday. If you are taking a trip to Paris and for some reason the urge hits you to purchase an Apple iPhone or Apple iPad, you now know exactly where to go.

I love how apple tries to be high-end, but if you go to your local Wal-Mart (which mine is definitely not high-end) you'll see tons of people walking around talking on their iPhones.

I mean...you could say the same thing about name brand clothes. Normal folks tend to save for nicer things that they want. And have you seen Apple's prices? I think we can all agree their products are premium products as far as price goes despite what you may think of the product itself. I love Apple...but if you put it in terms of clothing...Jeans are jeans whether you buy them from target for $20 or from Buckle for $90...they both do the same job...

The SGTab 10.1 costs $499, and it's just as fast as the iPad 2, witch costs $399, so Apple isn't THAT expensive, but they could indeed make some products a little bit cheaper to compete with the rest :p

Mr. Taco, who do you call Jeff? JeffdaBeat? Because he owns an iPhone as you can obviously see in his Phonearena Profile Pic.

And you're the poor guy that shops at Walmart and has never owned anything nice.

There's a reason some products cost more. Theyre usually better.

"it is the only "smartphone" that runs ios."

Your style answer:

Nokia N95 8GB is the only one device which has title "N95 8GB"...

Does that make it unique?

Using that logic the DROID RAZR MAXX is better. When it came out it cost $300 and the iPhone costs $200.

I don't think a phone built after the year 2011 that can't even get 4G should be considered premium. It definitely can't be considered better.

Premium materials costing Apple a total with labor about $40, yea premium alright...

"what about the materials used???"

Parts which are used in iPhone are not more premium than parts in other high-end smartphones. But for some reasons iPhones price is much higher than other smartphones.

Talking about other Apple devices, situation is the same.

Here is example for you, Apple's iPhone charger cost around $30 and here is list of parts:

0402 SMD resistor = $0.002
0805 SMD capacitor = $0.007
SMD transistor = $0.02
fusible resistor = $0.03
1A 600V (1J) diode = $0.06
thermistor = $0.07
Y capacitor = $0.08
3.3uF 400V electrolytic capacitor = $0.10
TL431 = $0.10
1.5uH inductor = $0.12
SCD 34 diode = $0.13
2801 optocoupler = $0.16
1HNK60 transistor = $0.22
USB jack = $0.33
100uF tantalum capacitor = $0.34
L6565 IC = $0.55
330uF tantalum polymer capacitor (Sanyo POSCAP) = $0.98
flyback transformer = $1.36

Does it look like ~ $30.00 ?

Exactly the same situation is with iPhone part list...

"the customer care??"

What about customer care? Maybe you want to say that other soesnt provide any customer care?

Typical logics of Apple, who cares about new technologies - better open fancy schmancy stores in fancy schmancy places and in this way promote our brand which is main reason for our customers when they are choosing products.
