I brought a 5 pack of thes a few weeks ago. They are in Texas at the moment 
waiting for my next trip out there. The expensive one (if you call $16 
expensive)  is for the US market. The cheap one is for the Japan market.

It's a different card. Here is the link to the socal dudes, they seem to 
have been hacking this the longest, though just up on that page  is a  link 
to the Russian guy that has done the majority of the hack.
