    Well, i was just wondering why is it that the ipod touch cost like $50 less in US than in Mexico, here it costs 3100 pesos which, according to google, its 246 dollars! and thats for the 8gb model

    the 32 gb is $373 dlls, and in us its only 300!

    why???

    From what I can tell, Apple squeeze their foreign markets much harder than the US. If I remember correctly, the $699 iPad is rumoured to cost £699 here in the UK, and last time I checked, $1 does not equal £1...

    Did you even read what he said? The 32GB costs 373 where he lives, and it costs 300 here. He said that.

    Yeah, but it is the result of their near-monopoly of the industry.

    Either way, they probably bank on selling more devices in the U.S. than anywhere else (I suppose; I really don't have numbers by regions to back that up), so the price can be lower, since they make it up by selling more.

    If I'm wrong, don't judge me; I'm sick and just took 2 Nyquil. Ugh.

    Well in India, a laptop that costs 500 in the US costs like 1000 (converting from rupees to dollars) and an iPhone 3G costs 800. But then again, u can get like a month's worth of food for like 10 dollars, so it makes up for the higher electronics prices.

    because they don't bring too many products to mexico. It's called economics.
