It is nearly always not quite what one thought. Yes $199 US dollars, but in Australia that is on Google Play pre order for $249 AUS dollars for 8G model (read in web review), and I suspect additional shipping of $20 AD to a Aus address. Exchange rate say 1.30 so that will be $350 NZD.
Does not look quite so good a price and that is without onward shipping costs to NZ.
The $249 AUD price is just what I read on the web can anyone confirm cost for 8g model and shipping cost to aus address?
