The reason behind the price increase is an obvious one. Dunno if other tablets will follow suit soon!

Remember the US price excludes state tax (even though there are a few states where you don't pay tax) but you can look at adding 4 to 8% of the price when buying it in a store there

meh, the rush then to get an ipad before the increase probably explains why I cannot get to their sales ppl at the moment. left messages but had no response yet.

This is a result with no real competition to the iPad, currently.
Hopefully with Android and Windows 8 tablets evolving it would lead to better prices in this market.
Personally I would wait till next year to see what Win8 tablets are released.

If those figures are a true reflection then good on your FEC knowledge. Seems to be quite effective at the moment.

At least Core is not the sole source for all iStuff anymore - if you're a business you can now buy from Gijima?

importing a kindle to sa you add 500 +- 4 taxes , shipping and handling to the price ...amazon (usa) won't allow you to import it into south africa as it probably a conflicts with apple's own distribution network in sa

at the end of the day you'd only save a R100 or so not worth it for apple ipod touch , nano or ipad

I'm actually VERY impressed with our pricing compared to everywhere else. Very competitive. Yeah we may be slightly more expensive than the US, but hardly.
Not bad, even with the increase.

Interesting I wonder if this will have any effect on the fnb special!
I doubt it. They probably bought a whole container of it @ about R3500-R4000 each.

I read somewhere that over 22000 units have been sold already.
