I am planning to travel to BKK next week, and lookind to see wether the S4 is available in MBK yet?
Any help greatly appreciated.
I'm not a techie, but, MBK is where I would look first. Often, stuff shows up there, Fortunetown, or Pantip, before it's readily available at bigger outlets.
Dont buy Samsung in MBK. It may not be what it says on the packet. Go to the samsung shop in Siam Paragon, Or Emporium, or Central World, Central Dept. store.
No, the S4 has not been released yet, and therefore is not available in Bangkok or anywhere else in the world. You are about a 3-4 weeks too early.
In other words, anyone who is sellng you one now is pulling a fast one.
I'm in Bangkok at the moment, I was looking for a Samsung S4 but the price here from a reputable place would at the most be $50 cheaper than Australia, being an ex IT Tech I was interested in a lot of computer items and spent hours in MBK Centre and Pantip Plaza, nothing worth touching for price, even portable Hard Drives were the same as Australia, the only thing that is cheaper here is clothes and food, anything else don't bother... I even fancied another RC Helicopter but no gain there either, in a word this place is OVERATED.
Did you figure in the 7% VAT refund?
No, but when you factor in the chance of a dodgy one not working properly and no warranty to follow up on in Oz the saving isn't that great, I was offered one for a third of the price in Pantip and the seller was honest enough to say straight out it was a copy, I went through the differences with him and he said functions were the same but some diferences in display, At least he was up front, but googling the aussie sites last night I could get on in Oz for $552 which is cheaper than the 18,900 baht here ($633.39).
