Exactly, well summed up CFB
The touchpad is worth 350$ or more itself, for the hardware _ functionality and the OS too - I agree it's no Galaxy tab, but hey that Galaxy tab comes for 700$ not cheap ! And this is for 350$ for almost the same hardware.
Besides, inclding customs and shipping the seller is earn around 30$ a shipment which is not bad !
250$ is the average cost in US today, so 350$ by no means is bad for India that too including customs !
149$ was a throwaway price, but seriously one need to get over it, it's long gone - and those lucky people who saved a 100$ good for them !
Again, I shared a deal - but nobody is compeling you to buy, you can keep looking maybe one day you find one for 50$ or maybe not
