Why is the GF1 in stock in Europe and out of Stock in USA?

Amazon US has the Panasonic GF1 is in Stock via third party resellers only and highly overpriced.
In this months we noticed how european stores do have Panasonic stuff always in Stock and US stores are often out of stock. Maybe because of the strong Euro Panasonic preferrs to fill the european market first? We also noticed that US stores do only list the black GF1. In european stores you can find the black-white-red-silver GF1!
Amazon Germany (you only miss the red GF1), Amazon UK, Amazon France do have almost all Panasonic GF1 in Stock!

It is a bit frustrating for US buyers!
