or do you think a 10" 500USD tablet can compete with a 200USD 7" tablet?


Yes it can. In fact the 500 USD tablet would probably cost 200 USD if it weren't for the very high profit margin.

Kindle Fire and B&N Nook Tablet cost much less because the profit margin is very small, because the manufacturers are making money by selling content, not the actual hardware.

To see if some hardware can compete with another hardware, don't look to the price or what some fanboi are saying. Just go look to some benchmarks: go look at Quadrant, Neocore, GLbenchmark etc. figures and judge for yourself.

More expensive is not always better. It should be, but it's not.
