RISC OS 4 deal for .nz usersBy Chris Williams. Published: 31st May 2004, 23:26:21 | Permalink | Printable
Curse those exchange ratesRISC OS users in New Zealand have been offered a special, exclusive "just for .nz" offer on RISC OS 4, according to local dealer Robert Greenfield of Webmonster. Provided that Robert can get enough orders together, qualifying users can pick up RISC OS 4.02 for NZ$250 and 4.39 (aka Adjust) for NZ$300.
Robert, who is a music teacher by day, explained: "I emailed Paul Middleton at RISCOS Ltd. about the latest Authorised Installer prices for RO4.02 and RO4.39. He emailed back with the special offer. It was nice that he realised I'm in New Zealand and the UKP-NZD exchange rate gives RISC OS products a right kicking over (PC) stuff from Asia, which offers 'better value for money'. Ahem."
The unfavourable exchange rates from pound sterling to currencies in the southern hemisphere are often cited as purchasing stumbling blocks for users down under. Initiatives such as this and the Iyonix Chuditch are therefore attempting to tackle this issue.
Contact Robert for more details and so forth.
