“about a tenth of the average urban income of $7,600″
Maybe 2600$ annual average income per family ,your number is outrageous even if you meant annual and per family.
As for Apple’s pricing,it’s a lot more ridiculous if you compare it to the competition.

“Average annual income for a family in 2012 was 13,000 renminbi, or about $2,100. When broken down by geography, the survey results showed that the average amount in Shanghai, a huge coastal city, was just over 29,000 renminbi, or $4,700, while the average in Gansu Province, far from the coast in northwest China, was 11,400 renminbi, or just under $2,000. Average family income in urban areas was about $2,600, while it was $1,600 in rural areas. ”
