Psst!! Looking for a cheap iPod? Head for Australia! That’s the news today in new research from CommSec, which shows down’ under’s the place to go for the best deal now.
It’s good and bad news for Australians – reason behind the price advantage is the falling price of the Australian dollar in the last few months, says the Age.
We’re noting this because we’re interested to take a look at the research behind the claim.
CommSec will today release details of its “iPod index”, which measures the price of an 8GB iPod nano in 62 countries to compare currencies, which reveals the cheap iPod news.
Over here in rip-off Britain, the research informs it would be about 25 per cent cheaper for a UK tourist to buy their iPod in Australia, rather than at home.
