Interesting... In the US, it's more like:
N-150 $35 v4/-- G
DIR-615 $44 v4/v6 A/N(5) or B/G/N(2.4)
DIR-815 $79 v4/v6 A/N(5) and B/G/N(2.4)
The jump in price from the 615 to 815 is likely more related
to the dual-radio vs. dual-band single radio.
The jump between the N-150 and DIR-615 could be similarly
attributed to the single-band radio vs. dual-band radio
As such, it doesn't look like a huge jump in price for IPv6 to me.
It looks comparable.

Perhaps that's an accurate exchange rate, but, apparently there is
a bigger difference in pricing than just the exchange point. Prices
above obtained by google search a few minutes ago.
