Samsung fishes for iPhone 4S customers with $2 Galaxy S II sale in Australia

The Apple iPhone 4S goes on sale in Australia on Friday and Samsung is ready to give it some competition from the get-go. According to The Sydney Herald, the South Korea-based phone maker set up a temporary pop-up shop two doors away from an Apple Store in Sydney, Australia. It then began to offer the Galaxy S II for just $2, which is valid for the first 10 people in line each day. It appears as though Samsung even has representatives trying to lure people away from the line that has been starting to form outside of the Apple Store. “There’s this guy who has come up to us trying to convince us to buy the Samsung Galaxy S II two days in a row now,” one person in Apple’s line said. “And he’s an idiot.” Samsung and Apple are currently fighting out a legal battle in the country, which has temporarily prevented local Samsung subsidiaries from selling or advertising the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet until a final court ruling.
