Enthusiasm appears to be waning for North Korea’s Samjiyon Android tablet.
Two of the tablets have appeared again on Ebay and were offered by the same vendor who sold one two weeks ago.
This time, it attracted fewer bids and sold for far less than the 6 winning bid of the first Samjiyon to appear on Ebay.
That was sold on November 17 by “[email protected],” who was identified in an Ebay profile as a Canadian user. The tablet was being shipped from Yanji, China, which is close to the North Korean border.
The Ebay profile page for that email address user now redirects to user name “dansumeh.” The second of the Samjiyon tablets was also listed in Yanji, but the third had the city name removed and is identified as just Jilin province.
As noted previously, the model on Ebay appears to be a slightly lower spec version that the original Samjiyon reviewed by North Korea Tech and 38 North.
Here are the three auctions:
What do you think is the reason of price decline?
I hope someone will finally root the Samjiyon.
LMAO @ Gfsd
I noticed that this North Korean website (from the NK Tech website list) sells it for 300 Euros:
