If there’s one thing capitalism has taught us, it’s that competition is usually good for prices. Newegg have just joined Dynamism in offering the Viliv X70 UMPC, the 7-inch Korean touchscreen tablet, which you’d expect to mean prices were pushed down. Unfortunately Newegg don’t seem to have got that memo; their prices are actually a little more expensive than the existing offers.
Newegg have three X70 models to choose from, starting at $599.99 for the 1.20GHz Atom Z515 “Express P”, then the $729.99 “Premium P”, and finally the $879.99 “Premium 3GP”. Unfortunately Dynamism’s prices are all a couple of bucks cheaper, plus they’re offering free accessories and even a CPU upgrade on the entry-level model. Nice try, Newegg; how about a quick price slash to show you love us?
