Well, Sony, Maybe you haven't noticed but outside of the iPad, there ISN'T a demand for higher priced tablets yet. People still use tablets for fun stuff more than work, so they use disposable income for tablets as opposed to smart phones which are viewed as a need.

That is why I am a little worried for the first wave of W8 tablets. There just isn't a premium market yet, and both Sony and W8 tablets may kill themselves if priced like there is.

Sony is always 1 year behind of its competitors.

I like Sony, but that's true. Hopefully Sony will do better, it's so far very encouraging.

It's very simple, if Sony enters a price war, Samsung wins. The biggest company always wins in price wars, and the biggest company is Samsung.

Right, but SS has the most to lose if price war starts.
