Customs Officials Arrest Man Smuggling 94 iPhones Wrapped Around His Body
Custom officials in China have arrested a man who tried to smuggle 94 iPhones from Hong Kong into Mainland China today Jan. 13th. The man whose identity was hidden, was bringing in the phones from Hong Kong where it's cheaper to buy to sell in mainland China where tax on the devices have made it very expensive for consumers.
iPhones are definitely a big deal in that part of the world. Who remembers the young tech who proposed to his girlfriend with 99 iPhones? She said no though. Read here.
