Min-Jin Kym’s $1.9 Million Violin Stolen While She Played On Her iPhone

Posted Dec 8, 2010

Min-Jin Kym is a very popular violin player and she should be using a Windows Phone 7 device instead of an iPhone. While she was playing on her iPhone at the Euston railway station in London, someone stole her $1.9 million Stradivarius violin.

The reason why I say she should be using a Windows Phone 7 device is because Microsoft’s whole ad campaign for these devices is that you can do what you need to do on their phones quickly and move on with your life. Kym was at the Pret A Manger sandwich shop and placed her 300 year old violin on the floor. Thieves grabbed the case and ran off. Hafid Salah, an employee at the Pret A Manger sandwich shop, said that Kym was playing on her iPhone when her violin was stolen.
