Not as high as that but quite high compared to desktop LCDs.

to the cost of the hardware parts, add the cost of development, hw/sw 
engineers, marketing, overhead
by distributors/shops and it's easy to get to high prices while the 
original manufacturer earns only a
fraction of the price paid by the user.

Anyway it could be that Lionstracs will sell parts too, eg the keyboard 
case, various boards etc,
that way you could do a do-it-yourself keyboard much more cheaper.
(eg you put in your own mainboard and stuff, no internal analog mixer 
you could use an external desktop LCD instead of the expensive internal 
one etc).
Perhaps if the parts are sold in bigger numbers the price will come down.

We will see, ill keep you posted what these crazy italians cook in their 
kitchen :-)
