[maemo-users] Getting a N810 abroad

From: Michael Flaig mflaig at pro-linux.de

remember, european prices contain taxes (16% in germany), us prices
don't (afaik)

why don't you just drive over to germany and get the n810 here?
there should be a nokia shop in karlsruhe somewhere ...

official price is 459EUR in germany. amazon germany has it for 401,95
I would suggest getting into a shop in karlsruhe, maybe call the shop in
advance, to make sure they have it and maybe bargain to get it at the
amazon price. 

I don't really know about swiss custom and if there is a customs duty -
well swiss taxes are higher I suppose - so ...

just my 2 cents,


btw. 459EUR ~ US$679
