Actually, there's an interesting fact that the swedes might like to
know.. Norway isn't part of the EU and the total import taxes+vat for
electronics froma Asia to Norway are slightly lower than into EU. If I
remember correctly this is because there is a special electronics
import tax in the EU zone. Unfortunately I can't guarantee this. But
maybe if a Norwegian commercial firm decides to import freerunners
directly from Asia the cost for swedes to pick up a freerunner "post
restante" i Norway might be slightly lower than to order it from inside
the EU.
Of course, this depends entirely on wheter a Norwegian firm decides to
import and their pricing.. 

Sincerly, Heikki Soerum.
