Actually, the £319 one is the Wi-Fi-only model. The iPad Mini with Retina and LTE costs no less than £419, which is exactly €508.82 (according to Google).

I am not an apple fan but I would rathr pay 100 euro more for apple.
Huawei is good brand but 100 euro won't convince people to buy huawei regardless of functionality as a phone.

Almost doubling the price for one geographic location because they think people there 'perceive' it differently isn't right. Might make them some extra dollars (or euros in this case) but not right nonetheless. I kind of hope it doesn't sell as well as Huawei wanted it to just so they can eat their words

It should be €295 and €325 in Europe, and $295 and $325 in USA.
What are they thinking?

But what He said, seems Logical.China's Market is Huge and Price sensitive, while in US, there would be more subsidies from Carriers.
