Man buys iPhone 7 online, receives table instead

We’ve all been there. You eagerly place an order for a new iPhone online, then eagerly wait by the door for its arrival, only to have your fun ruined when it turns out that your new iPhone is, in fact, a table.

Okay, so we’ve not all been there. But an unnamed Thai man apparently has, after he bought what he thought was a cheap iPhone 7 which turned out to be a novelty adult-sized desk.

The phone desk in question is the work of a company called 10×10 Korea. It does, to be fair, look like a pretty impressive reproduction — although it’s on a scale that not even the boldest phablet phone would consider. Its SIM card slot is, in this version, a draw for storing your possessions (and, perhaps, the remains of your dignity.)

There aren’t too many details available about the story. However, it seems that the buyer was a bit confused by the cost of shopping the desk-device. Evidently, everything became clear pretty quickly. He said that he failed to properly read about the product before ordering it.

Not the first case of mistaken identity

This isn’t the first time there has been a case of mistaken identity when it comes to buying iPhones. Most of the time, though, this isn’t a genuine product mix-up, but rather a scam on the part of the seller. Back in 2015, I wrote about a man who was approached about buying a new iPhone 6s — only to find that the back supposedly containing the iPhone was full of sugar. (Yes, that actually happened!) In another instance, a business in Detroit bought several iPhones that turned out to be iPhone boxes filled with Play-Doh bricks instead of smartphones.

Say whatever you want to about the table guy, but at least he got a table for his money.
