400+ with 2 year agreement plus data charge ... to expensive. I don't think this will sell. You can get a ipad for 500bucks and use your current phone for tethering.

like others said, it's still a bit pricey w/ a 2 yr contract, hard sell against other options.. i'll wait.

I'm sure there are still plenty of tech enthusiasts (doesnt necessarily mean they are knowledgable or smart techies though) that have the cash to dump in this, and will because they must have the biggest, best, newest device in their hands.

I too agree this is too expensive for a free-OS device with only a 7" display. The specs are good and i'd love to have one, but I just don't see it being worth that level of cash.

Guys wait and watch for Micromax Android phones in the market by this year end. It will provide phones selling under 100bucks

Hmm... Same with the guys above, I don't think this would take off very well. At that price point its way too expensive.
