Looks like they're pricing it to compete with iPad and not the Nexus, Nook Tablet or Kindle Fire - bad idea IMO for the late entry into the field with a controversial new OS that everyone is complaining about.
They needed to make it entry level at about $200 less to get everyone hooked and upgrading to Window 8 on their desktops and phones and THEN jack up the prices. The Win 8 and MS Office upgrades is where the money is, not some overpriced tablet, but I could be wrong and we'll just have to wait and see.
Hopefully another vendor will step in and hit the $200-$300 price point real soon.
It appears that lots of people want to turn their tablets into underpowered, over-priced, vendor locked-in netbooks.
Hardly underpowered as my Nexus 7 runs circles around my HP-mini netbook and it cost less.
