That is a bargain for $300 IMO. Can't wait for reviews after unveiling.

Yeah, that seems like a very smart price point although the accessories are a little too high. Controller should be $30 and cover/stand should be $20, tops. Its also going to suffer from the same handicap as gaming laptops: you'll need to have it plugged in to AC to get full use of it. Then there's the inevitable wave of cheaper alternatives that will be here shortly. There are probably direct-from-China equivalents already floating around.

That is true. The battery will probably only last a few hours, especially if streaming a game to the device. The stand pricing is exactly the same as Apple's Smart Cover. They probably used that as a reference.
