Why does the Nexus Q cost $100 more than the Nexus 7?
I am I missing something here?
Can anyone explain to me why a 16GB Nexus 7 costs $199 and a 16GB Nexus Q cost $299?
Below are the specs for both devices. Someone tell me where the extra $100 were sent on the Q's hardware.

I guess Google are just paying their American factory workers more than Asus are pay their Korean counterparts. But that's seems like such a high premium for a device when compared to a Google TV set top box that cost the same with much more functionality and no requirement of an Andriod device to control it.
Nexus Q seems like a joke gone too far and at $299 it's already dead in the water.
