Disappointing sales means they were priced too high. But then, why should Sony care? They always overprice.

Screen ratio is totally wrong for a tablet.
I know many people who refused to buy it because of that.

It is too expensive for all but "early adopters", agreed. But then, we don't know how much does it cost to manufacture, especially considering relatively small volume.
I'd understand some refuse to buy it because it is not quite like an ipad.
I was choosing between Sony S1 and Samsung Galaxy Tab. Sony had very intersting feature of serving as a remote control, SD card slot and more ergonomic shape, but cheaper plastic feel and 3G version is too expensive, so in the end I've decided for Samsung, rumoured to have best tablet screen ever released so far and ended never actually using 3G, thanks to tethering.
