    "The UK Sony store offers the 16GB one for $399"

    Isn't that meant to be a pound sign?

    In order for a tablet to be remotely interesting for me they need to be cheaper than netbooks, they're more expensive so I'll never get one. Interesting designs from Sony though, I like the idea of being able to fold a tablet to keep in your pocket.

    Does the US price include tax??

    If you add 20% VAT to the US price it comes to around $599 for the 16GB model which is around £370.

    Isn't that the same prices again as the iPad?
    The same prices HP were hoping to shift the touchpad at until recently?

    Given the price premium people are willing to pay for Apple products, surely they would need to be significantly better to gain any traction if selling at the same prices?

    True, as tablet designs go, this look as nice, if not nicer than the ipad.
