I'm one of the people that has bought into
the craze and paid double on ebay. Figure
it's still cheaper than anything else.
I've wanted some sort of web pad to play
with since I've worked on them at SGI
3 1/2 years ago.
Even if it does have a cheap screen and
run CE. Even at double it's cheap.
I have a mobile pro 770 also form my
ex-job. That is roughly the same amount
of hardware and they sold for $800 new.
The larger pad form factor is much more
interesting than the original CE clamshell.
The $200 price is way under epods burdened
cost to produce them. They probably paid
$400 or so each to have them built.
So to coin an old phrase "It's a bargain
at twice the price".
