A few days back I lost the data cable of my mobile (Nokia n70). On the Internet, I found the number of the nearest nokia service center to see if i can get a new data cable. First it took me ages to get a human on the other end of the phone line, but i was not so angry till the time he told me that a new data cable would cost me Rs. 1700/- (around 43US$). One thusand seven hundred rupees, that’s about 15% of the cost at which I brougt the phone along with data cable.
By no means, anyone can justify that steep price for just another USB connector cable.
I really feel sad for Nokia, as they have lost yet another loyal customer.
