Unfortunately, the $300 base/$450 advanced pricing scheme was a special
discount for GTA01.  The announced price for GTA02 is $450 for Neo
Base and $600 for Neo Advanced; see Sean's "New Oceans" email:
or the Neo1973 wiki page:

At that pricing, though, it will indeed have a tough time competing
with the iPhone among anyone but the most committed free software
