Hey look at that. I posted a thread where it belongs.
They don't have to cut anything. For what I read, the Tegra 3 chip will drop in price after Q2 and that will allow them to meet their target price.
Google would have had trouble hitting a $249 price point if the device was released in May, as costs of internal components such as Nvidia’s Tegra 3 SoC and DDR2 memory are expected to drop by mid-year.
