Legal Two different graphs. Both happen to be published at Ars Technica, with one of them coming from a different source. Seemingly completely unrelated, but when you ponder the waterfall of recent lawsuit-related news, these two graphs suddenly tell all there is to tell. These two innocent little graphs illustrate why Apple is attacking Android so ferociously.

Maybe such customers don't care how much they pay anyway..? Just looking at Amazon, I found the same model for $560.

I don't know whether to laugh to cry - that is in US DOLLARS AND ONLY AVAILABLE IN THE UNITD STATES. Jesus Toe Tapping Christ! Telecom NZ has less purchasing power thus their phones cost more than phones being sold, even at full price, by the big carriers and retailers in the US. New Zealand has 4.2million people and maybe out of that a few million customers using mobile phones which is minuscule when compared to the gigantic number of customers there are in the US.

Weird. The Netherlands is minute compared to the US, and we still have the sane prices compared to the US - heck, they are much lower, even.

I think it's more a case of NZ telcoms ripping you guys off.

Are you sure it's only available in the US? I thought Amazon shipped to many countries, and there were also some other sellers listed on Amazon that ship worldwide. But I sympathize with you not being able to get the same deals as people in the US.
