BusinessWeek did a comparison study on the costs of the iPod and iBook in countries around the world. Their findings demonstrated a large price difference in these products worldwide. For instance, in Apple’s 4GB iPod Nano costs $249 here in the US. In other countries it would cost (adjusted into US dollars, for comparison) $592 in Argentina, $286 in London, $248 in Tokyo, $299 in Shanghai and $299 in Moscow.
The iBook is similar, with NYC still coming in cheapest at $999 and Buenos Aires topping the charts for a whopping $1480. Looks like Apple’s products are quite expensive in South America!
