iPhone 4 in Norway (Price..)

Can someone tell me how Apple has the audacity to stop selling iPhone 4S in Norway, and instead sells the iPhone 4 8GB for as much as $540, or $1420 (Full cost after 12 months) on a mid-end data contract?

Heck the Note 2 is $700 and the GS3 is $618.

+ The warranty is far better on the Samsung devices because Apple doesn't collaborate as much with our retailer hence they scored the worst in a survey conducted in late 2011 (yeye, we are in 2013 but I very much doubt they have changed)

This may be a pointless thread but I gotta ask myself the question why they are selling it as such a premium?. The fact is that it's even selling relatively good, compared to the likes of Sony and HTC.
