The UK price penalty | 英国敲竹杠

Traditionally the UK price for both hardware and software was the US price with a pound sign stuck in front, meaning an additional 50 per cent stuck on the top of the price. With HP’s Touchpad being sold for as little as 99 USD, Amazon UK’s price for the Touchpad seem excessive even by UK standards.
