Default WP7 Marketplace - All Markets are not created equal !

Story on the "rip-off" Surcharge Aussies and many other non-US residents are paying vs US customers in the WP7 marketplace:

App Cost in USA Country – $1.99
Microsoft’s charge – AUD $3
Excess in $ – $0.98
Excess in % – 47%

Ouch! Typical – but ouch!

Must be the higher costs of packaging, freight and inequalities of market scale for warehousing, supply to Aus ! NOT

Thanks MS!
