Translation and explanation: German “für einen Apfel/Appel und ein Ei”, literally “for an apple and an egg”, “Ei” pronounced like “i”, means “for peanuts”, “for little money.”

No, with these prices, that’s certainly not an apt name for that “cult cell phone” or whatchamacallit what Apple wants to sell via T-Mobile in Germany from now on to its longingly waiting disciples… ;)
