HP was insane, coming to market with a comparable price to the iPad to begin with. You can't attack the market leader without offering an edge. Why do companies not realize that Apple offers more than rabid fans? There is an ecosystem, with applications and accessories, in addition to hardware that works reasonably well. You could have better hardware but it still wouldn't justify a higher price. Technology for its own sake only sells to geeks (like us). The general public is buying for other reasons.

Are tablets overpriced? Apples sure does sell as many iPads as they can pump out. So the answer is probably no, they're not priced too high. Some others (Motorola Zoom, I'm looking at you)? Oh yes.
