    Can anyone explain the reason why Android Tablet prices seem to fall between $150 and $500 but Android phone (unlocked) prices start at $500+. Is this just because they CAN charge more in the phone market? Or is there a technical reason a phone should cost more?

    Tablets (so far) have a different screen technology that is not as good but makes them a lot cheaper.

    tablets are cheaper to make that's why they are so cheap to buy
