Canon Pro-1000 vs Pro-500

Hello!

Do anyone know the difference between the canon pro-1000 and pro-500.

I live in Hong Kong, where the pro-500 is sold. I think this is also the model in Singapore, Thailand, Philippines and Malaysia.

From all i can see its the only difference is where the printer is sold. if so, do not understand why they add complexity with 2 models. Price seems very similar, both on printer and ink (HK prices vs BH photo prices).

I seem ink prices for PRO-1000 being quite a bit cheaper in Japan than elsewhere. Like 4500 JPY or 40 USD. Maybe its the fear that other asian people go to japan to buy ink that made canon do this segmentation?

Ideas, fact or pure speculation much welcome!
