you can not charge more than 399 for a tablet less than 10 inches... the ipad2 is 399 for 16GB!.
pick your poison... One should not get ripped off because you want an android tablet. and at these prices you are getting ripped off. 7 inch should be 299, the 10.1 should be 449, and the 13.3 should be 550. the ipad3 has a 2048x1536 screen at 499!
what has toshiba done with these tablets that makes them special and charge higher than market rate prices ? the only special feature in this group is the 13.3 inch tablet!.

Yes, they can charge more than $399. You get a quad-core CPU, AMOLED display (for 7") and a great GPU, Thin, Supports external storage via MicroSD etc..
The tablets aren't "terrible" pricing, considering the Transformer Prime here is $750 at best.
I might consider the 13" version actually, depending on how I find the experience with it in-store when it's released.
[citation][nom]spookie[/nom]Can someone please explain to me why the 7.7'' costs $499.99 for the 16 GB model, while the 10.1" model costs $449.99 for the 16 GB model?? Why does the small tablet cost more than the bigger one?[/citation]
I fear these are headed in much the same way as netbooks - growing larger but lacking the power to do much more than text and surf the web.
It would be nice if they included integrated 3G & 4G SIM capabilities, but primarily for foreign travel, as the phone and data plans in the US are absurd.
But I am surprised no one has partnered with MetroPCS to bring a decently powered tablet to their network featuring reasonable phone and data capabilities.
