    $171 to the UK :(. Looking at getting one of these for a masters project im doing. Need a camera phone with a compass! The black case is pretty smart though.

    Thats an awesome idea, as soon as the shipping costs get down I'm getting one.

    Apparently it's due to applicable import tax, VAT, actual shipping costs etc. It's not just the cost of sending it from a to b.

    edit: Not that it doesn't seem a bit pricey mind..unless you're in the us. :grr:

    I've just had another look at this, shipping to the UK is a bit cheaper now. ~ $40 shipping + ~ $80 tax. Makes the total cost ~ £340. Not too shabby.
