Article: Sony Xperia M lands in the US, priced at $249.99
why are the devices so cheap in the us ? $250 is about R2500. in RSA we would pay about R6000-R7000 ($600-$700) for it. to give you an idea a brand new GS2 sells for R5999 ($600)
This is because in the U.S. we can hardly afford anything but we must have the latest and greatest in technology. It all depends on the cost of living and we basically cannot afford anything here.
Not sure how you figure we can't afford anything???
