If they can sell all they can make and charge $350 (or whatever it costs) for it, what would be the point of pricing it at $199? Apple's never tried to compete on the grounds of price.
I seem to remember reading that it is a selling strategy to just deliver the amount of units so you sell out. So I do not think the conclusion is valid here.
