    Just wondering.

    $189 in USA.
    £189 in UK.

    Doesn't add up. Even when you take into account sales tax (aka VAT).

    Always the same. With every phone releases. Probably cheaper to import from US

    Because manufacturers price for the market they're selling in.

    There is something of a paradox there, though, with the States being the richest nation on Earth yet generally offering the lowest prices among western economies.

    Because UK taxes are a joke! They charge a LOT for electronic goods, for just about anything as a matter off fact
