How Much Should a Tablet Cost?
How much, or how little, should a Tablet cost?
I remember early 2010 before the iPad turned into something more than a longstanding rumor. A lot of people were interested to see what Apple could do to jumpstart a tablet PC industry that to date had only drawn interest from a handful of tech enthusiasts. Sleek design, intuitive features and mass market appeal went a long way, but what blew away a lot of people was the $499 starting price point –and maximum $849 USD. Even the highest price point existed, on par with the projected sale price of the new Motorola Xoom, if you asked someone how much an iPad costs most would say “$500”.
