Interesting thread started here I just wanted to touch on a few things that may or may not be important. Most company's know what each other sell items at whether it be from reading, surfing, or what have you so some try to offer more than just a unit itself. My feeling is if you are going to offer a unit that is not supported in the US then you need to be able to support it not only for yourself but for the customer. When I say support im not always talking about help with functions etc. I am talking about offering the customer a product that comes with what you need (manuals, the correct adapters, localisation, testing). I believe you need to sell a product fully not sell one where the customer has to do all the work to make the product usable.
When looking at prices many of us could sell these units at the same pricing everyone else does if we wanted to give you nothing with it. I think you have a great list of retailers of products going here but no listings of the "extras". Many of the retailers you name above have excellent products but all offer something different that sets them apart. I guess what I am saying is price is one thing and functionality with dependable support is another. This is not meant as advertising but as a retailers perspective because I personally believe "many" of the above are great, respected retailers we just all offer a different product.
Finally, also lets take into consideration the cost of importing and warranty claim. Warranty claim can be expensive if the unit cannot be repaired in house it has to be returned to Sharp Japan which the retailer pays freight for. Also looking into whether the units are CE/FCC tested. This costs a retailer around $2000 for testing plus or minus depending on the tweaking involved to get a unit to pass this testing. In Europe and the US this testing is needed in order to sell the units legally.
This is just a little food for thought from the retailers end of things I hope this helps shed some light on the differences in pricing and that "most" of the time there is more involved the just a simple raising and lowering of the price.
