for the most part it comes down to hardware costs. smart phones are getting to the point where they're almost as powerful as normal computers in some ways.

Personally, no. I can afford it which in my mind means it isn't over priced. Would I like it if the cost dropped? Yes. I nearly bought a Kindle Fire the other day just because of how cheap it was, and I'd be more inclined to do the same thing with a phone if the price was lower. Instead I carefully try and decide on the phone that will last me the longest time.
Are Cell Phones Over Priced?

read my post again, I said they're getting CLOSE in SOME ways (sure I used the word almost, but you're completely missing my point by debating the power part of my post)
How about no.
The fastest ARM soc is nearly catching up with Intel's slowest Atom (Which on the other hand already says everything, Atom's suck out of the box)

If you're referring to a gaming console, they sell for so little cuz the companies make up for it selling the games.
So they cost less to build than a console, and yet sell for a bit more than twice as much, in some cases.
And people want to say they're not overpriced?
