Also, I've usually seen that $199 as the claimed volume OEM price. Meaning that would be the price that Uruguay (or whomever) would pay buying many thousands of them - and the units wouldn't be in retail packaging. And even then for the bottom-most stripped version. And if Uruguay wanted to resell them, they'd probably want more than that to sell you or I one.

Yep, that $199 pricing was for large volume OEM sales and for the rock bottom version. I speculated when the news broke that retail of the 4GB model would be $399.
