    Seems a bit pricey, I was expecting half that. It's hard enough for a big name to compete in $400+ area, regardless of hardware

    I'm actually quite surprised. Most of the specs are better than the Nexus 10's, except for the resolution. Plus, I think this tablet looks a lot sexier. Only about 20 bucks more than a Nexus 10 16GB.

    You realize they have to make a profit. The prices of most tech is set by the costs to design and produce the product. They aren't free.
