    I love the look of the silver passport, but the BlackBerry Store Australia is selling it for $999 un bundled. They are in stock for over night delivery, but the price must be killing sales

    Why is everything so expensive in Australia? Just like the Madonna tickets?

    Us poor Aussies get bent over all the time. That price is just rediculous, but BlackBerry Store is expensive.

    It is expensive and at present I believe it is the only place for us to buy it in Australia. Cannot see sales being overly strong here for that price

    You got to admire just how extensive taxes can be where even Netflix in Australia has it's own tax imposed there, when I thought no one would beat Scandinavia, minus the bushfire and the exponentially lethal fauna

    Nothing ever or will ever get sold to AUS and NZ due to the amazingly intricate sales/shipping taxes. Surprised why tax evasion isn't a thing there (yet).

    Consider waiting a few months to purchase the Silver Passport. The price will drop a few hundred dollars, perhaps to $699 even.

    Very frustrating that things are so expensive here.

    In saying that, is there a large price difference at the moment with the black Passport?

    No, there is a store in Sydney called BlackBerry Store but not associated with BlackBerry itself.

    The worst of it is when they passed the bill to block piracy, they blocked the amendment to enquire why foreign goods cost so much more here. It's the worst of both world's for us.
