Little Expansys Rant

Just noticed this http://www.expansys.ie/mobile-phones/brand/nokia/

How weird - is it Expansys or Nokia or both?
The Nokia N9 is cheaper in Magenta than the black N9, while the Nokia Lumia 800 is a whole lot more expensive than the black Lumia 800!!!

What the f*ck? Both models use pretty mach the same hardware materials.
How do these companies make up their prices?

You'll find the same at many online sites. For example: here.

Same hard drive, differing prices depending on the colour. It's because while Amazon/ Expansys etc. may initially set a price, there's a bunch of complicated formulas running in the background nudging the price due to supply, demand, competitor pricing etc. Unchecked, these formulas can lead to some humourous problems.
