- In Jordan, the iPhone is most expensive, translating into $1,091.
NOTE: the prices deviate simply because that taxes in various countries.
As outlined by the Forbes writer Tim Worstall:
The prices used include sales taxes (and for the US, Californian ones are used for the whole country) and those obviously vary in each taxing jurisdiction. Then there are also various places that have import taxes on electronics.
He moves onto say:
No one at all goes out and sells something at $501. This might not be entirely rational but it is the way we humans see things, that $499 is much cheaper than $501. Certainly, we all act as if it’s much more than $2 cheaper. So price points are going to be at $499, perhaps $489, $449, instead of $451.
