The pricing (for the S model) seems rather high given the (poor) specs ....

Not sure of any hardware info, but I know they don't make anything anymore. They just rebrand stuff, they have never made any flash products.

Holy Crap! S-Class would leave a hole in ya pocket.
Maybe these arnt rebranded. . .
Surely they wouldnt be going for such profit margins with the S-Class given the current level of global awareness. Maybe they feel like they have bait. Maybe they are producing them which makes more sence to me. Going to have to look that up.
