Although the success story of apple is sung by many the firm still couldn’t understand the Asian market and its customers. If rumors are to be believed the latest apple product, the iPhone 5 did poor business in major Asian markets of China, India, and Korea. While there are many speculations about the exact reason behind this conundrum, we bring to you some simple facts that will justify the situation better. First and foremost price plays an important role in Asian markets. It’s practically impossible for a majority of Asian population to spend a whopping sums of money on phones and gadgets where much cheaper versions are available.
