    Can you please put the price? If there is no announcement of price can you just put the price without the tax and subsidies? Because Calvin do that. I`m sorry to say but Calvin post better articles than this

      Hi, noted. Will keep you updated once we get the price. Thanks for the comment :)

  • Edmund

    Think Joey has just cut and pasted a press release.

    • Joey

      Nope, not copy+paste. 😀 Thanks for your comment anyway.

  • john

    • nhian

  • Doms

    Hi Joey, we feel as if we’re left hanging when you don’t even say the price as TBD when you don’t know it. I think it’s better if you say TBD if you still don’t have any idea about the price. Thanks.

    • Joey

      Hi Doms, Sorry if I missed that. I have already updated the post. Thank you very much for your comment. Cheers!
