Wordpress's invisible pricing information

Was looking at blogging solutions: wordpress.com seems to be fairly widely recommended (Travell over at http://travellperkins.com/ called it "amazing that you can pay $10 for a scalable site that won't go down").

They have some premium features that really make it look nice: custom domains, no ads, videopress. Wonder how much it costs? And then the adventure begins.

Pricing appears to be impossible to obtain: look at the front page for pricing information, its nowhere to be found.

The premium features page (http://en.wordpress.com/products/)? Got all the lovely info, but no prices. References to the Upgrades tab AFTER you've signed up.

I think this captures my sentiments on this: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/please-be-more-up-front-about-upgrade-pricing.

Shouldn't be this hard to figure out how much it'll cost. I'm told its a standard B school technique, allows for "favorable" deals. That's helpful. So much for price transparency.

Hidden prices. Not just for enterprise software vendors. Hopefully, they'll fix this soon.

P.S. If you're looking to use your Android phone as a Bluetooth GPS device, checkout SolidSync Network/Bluetooth GPS in the Google Play Store or on the web at http://solidsync.com/networkbluetooth-gps.
