    I think we should boycot tigerdirect here's why....

    I've seen a post on how tiger direct is offering pre-orders on the blackberry bold... That's great... problem being that their 800$ for an unlocked one... ok, I can handle little price gouge (spelling),.. bigger problem being, since I live in Canada.. they're telling me to go to their Canadian site... ok, fair enough... but the exact same phone, from the exact same distributor cost 175$ MORE then their US suppliers....

    Does that make any sort of sense to anyone? Last I checked, on xe.com with the exchange rate brought the 800$ item up to 850$, that is still a 125$ markup! And on top of all that... RIM is Canadian... I don't know if they really think were going to be fools and buying into this... but I most definitely will not...

    I've already sent them an email showing my displeasure... I would suggest if anyone else feels the same way to do the same... Something needs to get done...

    power comes in numbers... UNITE THE CLAN!!

    ...ok that was over the edge

    We always get dinged more for the exact same thing. Check Maclean's front page. It has this problem outline pretty good.

    i agree with you on that point. its getting out of hand where they just want to price gouge, and we as citizens dont make corporate/goverment money. so we need to unite instead struglling because they dont care.

    Yeah I agree they chould not gouge the 125$, maybe it costs a little bit more for shipping, so it should be the same or just maybe 20$ more not 125$!
