One would usually link a heist like this one would happen in the US or Europe. Not here, especially a country whose mobile market was deemed not worthy enough to be included in the first batch of iPhone 5 or even the new iPad 4th gen.
But when your cargo is worth around $1 million, you can’t really say that there will be no interested parties who would want to make some quick illegal bucks. And so it proved. Not long after the Samsung Galaxy Note II was launched here in Malaysia, a shipment of 1400 brand new Galaxy Note II – the latest iteration of the Korean company’s wildly popular Note phablets – was stolen from an airport in Kuala Lumpur.
Not quite as daring as the one that happened in France recently, but nevertheless, to look on the bright side of things (and completely ignoring the $1 million write off – after all, they did make $7.8 billion in profits for Q3 this year alone) the theft could be a testament to the increasing popularity of Samsung’s smart devices.
