It has been that for a while, though some dealers still seem to be
advertising the original launch price of ~1800GBP. I saw an ad like this
just last month.

1GBP=$1.46USD according to the financial markets...

*but* we usually end up paying much the same price for most consumer goods,
ie if a gizmo costs $299USD it'll usually be 299GBP by the time shipping,
import duty, VAT (tax) and piggies in the food chain have had their cut.
Not for nothing is this called 'Rip Off Britain'.
