G1 for developers, warning for shipping costs

Google has release developer friendly G1 which is completely unlocked with only 399 USD thats like 2.50 EUR these days… but there is a catch… They charge loads with shipping costs outside of US. Quite weird if they have US shipping for free but to:
to Canada $264
to Spain: $268
to India: $224
to France $183

Whoo… I almost subscribed to Android developers but I guess I will go to E71 after all, it seems E71 is the best phone for my needs.
