I agree. Their WP8 tablets are crazy expensive, and honestly, Windows doesn't have the mobile swag to try to play the pricing game yet. Follow the path of the Nexus: Affordability with semi-premium quality to establish your clique, then set the standards for everyone else to follow. Kudos to Google for playing the price-game RIGHT

Add import duties, taxes, dealer margin etc and this would become $180+ in India. There are already few players in that range in Indian market and i am sure they will up their specs too if this offers competition to them.
