They probably do it to gauge tech forum intersts. By looking at this board. a marketer would say ~$500 looks good.
But to help gauge or set a price on something like this,….I don’t know about that. Even if they did employ such tactics I doubt if they would let it dictate price with any hard numbers initially. They must have had cost assessments for manufacture, known what segment of the market they wanted to sell in (MSRP) and how much profit they expected before the product was even given a go.
