$100 for a tablet device? Even the tiny iTouch is $200. So I'm wondering how they're gonna pull this off - unless they're planning to not make any profits on the hardware - that could be possible.

There are some really cheap ARM netbooks you can buy for around $100-$150. Swap out the keyboard, trackpad, and some extra plastic for a touch screen and the costs shouldn't be too different.

And I'm assuming we're looking at 7" tablets in this price range. Maybe we'll see a 9" or 10" for $150-$200.

don't forget apple marks up their products, so that itouch could actually be $100. just like how their computers are like ~$2000 when u can build the same one for ~$1000.
