It’s a really good news for Asia-based Google gadget fans. Google launced their super hyped phone, the Nexus One, today. The “super phone” is initially available in four countries: the US, UK, Singapore and Hong Kong. [Vodafone will begin selling Nexus One for Europe this spring].Anyway, here’s the official pricing of international shipping for those outside the U.S:
- Nexus One Phone $529.99
- AC Adaptor $19.99
- Shipping (DHL International) $29.65
Duties and taxes will be payable to the courier on receipt of order:
- Hong Kong: no VAT or GST!
- Singapore: 7% Goods and Services Tax on the Cost, Insurance & Freight
- United Kingdom: 17.5% VAT on the total cost of order including all shipping costs and insurance.
In total, for Hong Kong users, at least around US$580 or HK$4500 needed to get this device delivered to their home.[via Gajeto, Nexus-One]
