jamesyb0i: I read somewhere that the cost of making a Nexus One is only like $170 odd USD... not including marketing, packaging etc.. eeeh... But I'm sure the ones retail in NZ will be a lot more expensive. If so I can use my shipping routes to buy and resell another 4 for cheaper price.
That might be true but don't forget the large R&D that went into making the phone and the profit Google needs to make. Plus parallel importers and others only have one way to get the phone - the same way we are since it's unlikely Google are going to sell the phone through retail channels.
