According to Engadget Windows 7 pre-order copies have been sold out in Japan. 30,000 copies were claimed from 17 vendors after just one and a half day.
In Japan you would pay 7,777 Yen ($81.1499) for Home Premium and 14,777 ($154.1921) Yen for the Professional edition.
In Canada people pay $64,99 for Home Premium and $124,99 for the Professional edition.
You can still claim your Windows 7 pre-order copy until July 11th, but some sources say that it will be sold out soon (in the US).
It would be interesting to know the amount of discounted copies Microsoft is giving out to US vendors, do you reckon it is more than 300,000?
