Brazil continues to be the country where iPods are more expensive than everywhere else. According to the Australian Commonwealth Bank, a 2 Gb iPod nano costs US$ 360 in Brazil and US$ 240 in India. The country where the iPod is sold at the lowest price worldwide is Japan with a price of US$ 147 passing Canada (US$ 154) which used to have the cheapest price.*
Once again the proof of how goods are overtaxed in Brazil, resulting in super high prices that keep people from buying things they need/like and making them pay their bills through installment plans with skyrocketing interest rates.
