PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Last week, HP killed its webOS devices unit. Over the weekend, the company slashed the prices on the TouchPad. The result? The TouchPad sold out completely in a matter of hours. This confirms what I've been hearing from friends and family: "I'd love a tablet, but I'm not paying laptop money for one."

Apple's iPad2 costs look to be the same as iPad's in 2010. And Apple is the biggest consumer, so they benefit the most. iPad1's component costs are about $200 at the moment, but those are Apple's costs...

PS: Did you try to insult me? Or maybe you know the actual costs of components to manufacturers? How many contacts at Foxconn do you have?
