Its expensive i think... $350 - $400 would have cut it.

Way too expensive for those specs I think. Max price for that should be $370

It's usually the case for a new company with a new product. They have to try and recoup the money they spent on fabbing and R&D somewhere. If it sells enough there's a good chance the price will go down. I would like to see how the new OS fares as it would make for an interesting mobile consumer landscape.

That design, while not cheap to the eye, just looks aesthetically unappealing. I guess it's hard when you try to do new things to stand out. That's just my opinion. Also, it's not a good thing to use a product header that's telling consumers that there's definitely going to be another one that's better.
