Smashing iPhones

The new iPhone is out. After much fanfare. Then I read this.

You pay big bucks to smash a new phone. REALLY smart. Some people just have too much money to burn. I know, I know, some people just want to see what's inside. But a delicate operation to open it will suffice, I think. No need to smash the phone.

Where else but in the US do people have the luxury to smash cellphones? I mean honestly. In other places, cellphone prices are so exorbitant, people actually do everything to keep their phones working.


Ok, ok, I know it's all for the sake of knowledge. Sacrifice one iPhone on the altar of knowledge. Fine. But my goodness, how much again does one iPhone cost?
