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."

tablet per unit manufacturing cost:$50

Can you provide a bill of materials to back up your number?
Like iSupply does.
The average cost of components of different tablets is around $300 by their estimate.
