Thailand gets technology toys that are different from the US, Japan, and Hong Kong – oh, and Kuala Lumpur. One never really knows when the latest electronics technological gadgets will be approved for Thailand – it isn’t that big a market that big companies worry much about it.
For instance, the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, the iPod Touches, the Amazon Kindle – all these things took months to arrive in Thailand – sometimes 6+ months after the US or Japan got them. If you are thinking about buying electronics technology in Thailand you would be advised to go to Kuala Lumpur by plane – it’s cheap and the prices there are a bit cheaper. The selection – much bigger. The flight is only about 5,000 THB round-trip.
