Well at what price and what battery life?

Ah missed that too...
7) Battery life 8+ hrs (enough for a work day)
Price I would say about <$500 - $400 is the sweet spot in my opinion for most people to consider such a device. It is meant as an media consumption device - a luxury but yet built on "commodity" parts. Costing more than $400 to $500 for such devices is like saying it isn't meant for mainstream public but rather for those who can/will splurge money without care.
Regardless I feel that the way things are going on in the mobile/tablet world, a lot of companies are going to burn the same way they did during the netbook era - far too many options and far too many quick changes - that after reporting massive revenue jumps they still didn't make any decent profit due to huge competition.

What's the point, from Asus' perspective here? Only 3.4 million Android Tablets have been sold so far. By comparison, 34.8 million iPads have now been sold, so what kind of ROI is that?
