My guess is that the only difference between the phase 1 and 2 pricing
is the inclusion of the distributor's share in the phase 2 pricing.
Distributors in these parts seem to get electronics around ~66% of
list price. This is exactly the $300/$450 split one sees in the
phase1/phase2 pricing. I don't think this is a coincidence.
If FIC does manage to get Ingram Micro or some other large distributor
to carry the Neo, I would expect to start to seeing a street price
much closer $300.
