That price is insane...they make the Apple ipad look cheap. Honestly you can get a touchscreen laptop for a lower price in which you can upgrade the components to your liking especially the hard drive capacity. That device isn't state of the art for it to be so expensive.

This thing is priced so strangely. I could either buy this device that isn't quite a productivity device but also not an ultraportable tablet like the iPad for $900 (or over $1000 if I want the touch/type cover!), or I could just buy a real laptop. It seems like this will have a really niche market and won't sell very well.
