Or £237/$393 without the tax.

Always consider the tax.

As Richard points out, this is £15 less than the Play Store price in the UK. You can't always just convert pounds to dollars and assume it's a "bad deal." There are always price discrepancies between the two countries when comparing products. The only way to determine how good of a "deal" it is is to compare to current pricing in the UK or other products in the UK.

Yeah...WE GET SCREWED ON EVERYTHING. 

And because we're simple and have a flat rate of tax for the whole nation, ours is included in the shelf price. The N5 hasn't been anywhere here for this price since launch.

That f##kin sucks, man. So, there's a flat-rate tax on EVERYTHING?

fuzzylumpkin says:

Well, not quite. The tax mentioned is our 20% VAT, what Americans call "sales tax". Obviously there's grocery items which are exempt or lower, alcohol tobacco and fuel are higher. But in general it's 20%, but don't you have the same thing? Like in New York it's a flat 10%(I think)?

MERCDROID says:

Yeah, but 20 percent is kinda high.

Yeah. Even 10 percent is high for the US

Are groupon still doing that "if you recommend this deal to 6 friends, you get yours free"?
Could be a nice little earner...
