三泰虎博客9月13日译文,印度时报文章《廉价iPhone 5C在世界最大市场看似价格昂贵》。文章称,世界上最大的上市公司和世界上市场最大的国家在一部手机的定价上产生冲突。苹果新塑料壳的iPhone 5C在中国售价4488元(730美元),几乎比美国零售价549美元多了200美元,仅比高配的5S便宜800元(130美元)。这一原本预计廉价的机型针对的是中国和印度等成长型市场,它的定价不仅难住了投资者,也令中国的苹果粉丝却步。中国有14亿人口,是世界上最大的智能机市场。

BEIJING/SINGAPORE: The world’s biggest public company and the world’s biggest country are at loggerheads over the price of a phone.

Apple’s new plastic-backed iPhone 5C will sell for 4,488 yuan ($730) China, almost $200 more than the United States retail price of $549 and only 800 yuan ($130) less than its top-of-the-line sibling, the 5S.

The pricing of what was expected to be a cheap model aimed at growth markets such as China and India has not only stumped investors, but also Apple aficionados in China, a country of 1.4 billion people and the world’s largest smartphone market.

世界上最大的上市公司和世界上市场最大的国家在一部手机的定价上产生冲突。

苹果新塑料壳的iPhone 5C在中国售价4488元(730美元),几乎比美国零售价549美元多了200美元,仅比高配的5S便宜800元(130美元)。

这一原本预计廉价的机型针对的是中国和印度等成长型市场,它的定价不仅难住了投资者,也令中国的苹果粉丝却步。中国有14亿人口,是世界上最大的智能机市场。

“My original estimate of the 5S price was around 3,000 yuan, but more than 4,000 – I think for a budget version the price may be a little expensive. I don’t think I can buy one,” said Liu Donghai, a 25-year-old chemical engineer.

“If the 5S is around 5,000, then it’s similar to the already-released 5 and 4S. I would accept this,” he added.

Apple, whose market capitalization of $449 billion makes it the world’s most valuable publicly traded company, unveiled the two new handsets at an event at the company’s headquarters in Cupertino, California, on Tuesday.

For the first time, it held a launch event in Beijing hours later on Wednesday, a move seen as underscoring the importance of the Chinese market.

“我原本预计5C的定价是大约3000元,但是超过了4000元,我认为对廉价版本的机型来说有点贵了。我想我不会买的。”一位叫刘东海的25岁化学工程师说道。

“如果5S的价格大约是5000元,那么价格就和已经发布的iPhone 5 和 4S差不多。我会接受的。”他又说道。

市值4490亿美元的苹果是世界上最有价值的上市公司。周二,公司在加利福尼亚库比蒂诺的公司总部发布了两款新手机。

一天后的周三,公司首次在北京举行新品发布会,此举被视为其对中国市场的重视。

Lack of buzz

New Apple product releases tend to generate a great deal of buzz, but the 5C’s reception in China, where fans have been known to queue for days for new products, was lukewarm at best.

“The iPhone 5C is so expensive. Originally I absolutely planned to buy it, now the price makes me uncomfortable. Isn’t it just an iPhone 5 with a plastic back?” said Sina Weibo user Shangzhiruixin.

The phrase “iPhone 5S” was the most popular search term on Sina Weibo, China’s most widely used microblogging service, on Wednesday, while “iPhone 5C” did not appear on the top searches list.

苹果新产品发布通常能带来很大一阵骚动。然而,在以粉丝排长队购买新产品著称的中国,iPhone 5C收获的反应充其量也就是不冷不热。

“iPhone 5C 太贵了。我原本打算买的,这个价格让我难以接受。不就是套上塑料壳的iPhone 5吗?”一位新浪微博用户说道。

周三,“iPhone 5S”成为了中国最广为人使用的新浪微博上的最热门搜索词,而“iPhone 5C”并未出现在搜索词榜单中。

Other users questioned why anyone willing to fork out well over 4,000 yuan for a smartphone would not just pay a bit more for the premium 5S model.

But others believe that the 5C makes sense in an increasingly competitive smartphone market, where the cheaper the handsets the more bitter the fight for dominance.

Apple’s share of the China smartphone market slipped to 5 percent in the second quarter, according to research firm Canalys, trailing not just Samsung but also the likes of Lenovo Group Ltd, ZTE Corp, Huawei Technologies and Xiaomi Technology.

其他微博用户质问道,为什么有人会愿意支付4000多元购买一部5C智能机,而不多花一些钱购买高级版的5S。

然而,其他微博用户认为5C的定价在竞争日益激烈的智能机市场上是合理的。价位越低,竞争就越激烈。

易观国际(Canalys)的一份调查显示,苹果在中国智能机市场的第二季度份额下滑至5%,不仅落后三星,而且落后联想、中兴、华为和小米等公司。

“Even though Apple has a lower end iPhone now, its price is still considered mid-end in China and not low-end,” said Sandy Shen, a Shanghai-based analyst for Gartner.

Around half of China’s smartphone shipments are in the 700-1,500 yuan range, said Shen, but competing on those prices isn’t an attractive prospect for Apple.

“Considering Apple’s old rival Samsung and domestic players such as Huawei, Lenovo and Coolpad all have phones in that category, Apple will still lose out in market share in these key segments,” she said.

($1 = 6.1200 Chinese yuan)

“虽然苹果现在有了中低端的iPhone,但是其价格仍在中国被视为中高端,而不是中低端。”高德纳上海分公司的一位分析师说道。

中国智能机出货量的一半介于700至1500元价格区间,但角逐这一价格区间对苹果没有吸引力。

她说道,考虑到苹果的老对手三星和中国本土竞争者,比如华为、联想和酷派,都在该价格区间有产品布局,苹果仍会在这一关键领域输掉市场份额。

Apple iPhone 5C or 5S or any other smartphone – Basically these are depreciating assets. You buy them for 40K today and tomorrow you will not get a buyer to buy it for 35K. Waste of money. These products are more of a status symbol and style statement that any other thing.

基本上说来,苹果iPhone 5C、5S或其他智能机,都是些买来就贬值的资产。你今天花4万卢比买来,明天你很难找到愿意出3.5万卢比购买你这部手机的买家。纯粹就是浪费钱。这些产品更像是一种地位象征和时尚宣言。

  1. 5C存在的意义在于让大家觉得加上小一千块钱买5S是比较划算的,说到底还是坑那些人傻钱又多的某群体的。

    • 中国人有钱怕毛,手机和气车一样,外国佬就是喜欢吸中国人的血,可以不吃不喝,就是喜欢摆,买吧反正不老子的钱,懒得喷 😈

  2. 现在还买苹果的纯属脑残,华为、中兴、联想哪一个不完爆苹果,就连湾湾的HTC都比苹果强的多。

  3. 各位,跟三泰虎進行討價還價的夜間會議後,關於轉貼綠營文章,我們對此做出下面聲明。
    先感謝部分網民有興趣了解綠營,但是這種嘗試似乎違反站方的經營方針。雖然三泰虎把權利轉交給本人,但是在考慮眾多因素,我們決定避免發表綠營的文章。並且基於下面理由:
    1.散布台獨思想,並且不符中華人民共和國的法令。
    2.由於轉貼此類言論,有鼓勵分離主義的嫌疑,而且站長曾因某些理由,強行刪除本人10多篇翻譯(有色情字眼),為了避免更加敏感的政治讓網站被警告。
    3.避免網站被當局加黑。
    如果有人還想看,可發郵件連絡,我們會提供文章網址。做出如此艱難的決定,我們深感抱歉與遺憾,但是必須遵守中華人民共和國的法律。

  4. 印度又尼玛不要脸的拿自己跟中国掺一起了、苹果在中国都成街机了好吗?而且人家已经用到不想用了,诺基亚早期旧款的民族就是尼玛的奇葩啊

  5. 劳资我不用苹果照样能活 小米 华为 中兴 酷派 那个比不上苹果? 4000元我可以干什么? 小米3 1999元比起苹果好用多了 ! 垃圾 用的都不想用了 ! 苹果三星还是滚出中国市场

    • 说得太对了!小米的红米手机,不到800元,CPU速度挺快,做工也挺好,来自苹果同一家代工厂商富士康;小米3手机更是发烧级的品种,只要2000元!

      民族品牌只要给一点阳光,他们就会灿烂无比,越做越强——家电行业就是很好的例子,华为更是新近出现的典范。当然民族品牌也得争气,不断提高品质,汽车行业是个不争气的例子,长城、比亚迪最近刚有点起色。

      苹果把价格定得如此之高,不可理喻。而竟然还有国人花那么多的冤枉钱去买苹果手机,更是匪夷所思。

  6. 哎,不仅是手机还有汽车,国外的品牌在中国卖的价格都比在国内和其他国家卖的价格高多了。人们竟然还追着买。国产品牌的质量和创新真该加油加油再加油啊。
