Baofeng UV-5R: Pricing Updates

The following is from Nate:
"Jun's Electronics A.K.A now sells the Baofeng UV-5R for $55.
They also sell the Kenwood USB programming cable for $12.
Shipping via UPS ground is about $12
Total: $79
So just $22 more is not too bad if you are like me and don't want to risk it or wait for 3-4 weeks (409shop).
If you need a second radio, or have the Kenwood USB programming cable already (or don't care about programming your radio from your computer): - UV-5R: $55
Shipping via UPS ground: $11 (not a typo, Jun's website charges you an extra buck to ship the cable with radio).
Total: $66
Not too bad, only $19 more, than 409Shop.

I've used the following for comparison: 

409Shop - UV-5R : $47.Kenwood USB programming cable: $8.Free postal shipping.
Total: $55
Kight Radio have just recently updated his website: - It looks good, but I think that the website is still in it's beta phase, because it seems like some features don't work.
He has a free shipping promotion with the coupon code: OCT30
You might be able to nab a UV-5R there for $60 if you don't need the programming cable (only $13 more than 409Shop, for a US seller).
(He sells the programming cable for $15)."

I had also noticed that the KightRadio site had been updated. Here is the direct link to his Chinese Radio News/Blog section.
