never seen this brand of phone before. When I found it, I thought it
was a very expensive model, so I did not find it out of the ordinary
when the shop quoted me that much for the Blackberry’s accessories. I
thought a more expensive phone would mean accessories that cost more.
"I was also in a hurry then, so I did not haggle over the price."
Micro SD cards at "seasonal price"
a Lianhe Wanbao reporter contacted the Lucky Plaza store about the
prices for BlackBerry accessories, the shop staff were unable to give
specific prices of the products in question.
The shop staff would only say that a Micro SD card was sold at a "seasonal price" when asked how much would one be selling for.
the reporter continued to press for answers, the salesperson at the
other end of the line appeared to sound agitated. He then said that he
does not know anything, and asked the reporter to visit the store for
more information on prices.
