We can’t say this news is much of shock after Apple rejected Samsung’s settlement offer in Australia but since then Samsung have proved they can more than hold their own against Apple and aren’t afraid to play dirty.
Samsung have set-up a temporary store just metres away from the Apple store and are offering customers the Galaxy S II for only $2.
From October 10 to October 14, the first 10 customers will be able to get their hands on the Samsung Galaxy S II for only $2, a phone with a RRP of $849.
Outside the Samsung “pop up” store there was a much longer queue than that seen outside the Apple store. The South Korean company rented the store just two doors down from the Sydney Apple store to promote the Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone and its new online music subscription service, Music Hub.
The iPhone 4S goes on sale at 8am on Friday. Samsung are considered by many to be their strongest competitors due to the success of their Galaxy S II smartphone.
Samsung and Apple have lawsuits filed in many different countries, with Apple being successful in blocking the sales of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab in Germany and Australia. To date Samsung have been unsuccessful in blocking the sales of any Apple products. Most recently Samsung filed lawsuits to block iPhone 4S sales in France and Italy.
