As mentioned in other thread the color seems to matter a lot to
females. When it is ready to be used by the general population, please
consider introducing a female-friendly color (red?).

How was this computed? From the view of FIC or the view of the consumer?

If I buy from the US I will have to pay shipping (which is at least
double of shipping in EU), VAT (25%), import service fee (USD 30).
If I buy from the EU I will have to pay shipping, no VAT, no import service fee.

If the shipping from US is 80 USD and the phone is USD 400, then I
will be paying around USD 570 to receive the phone from the US.
