Why is Surface RT so overpriced?

Basically, there is no good reason to purchase a product running Windows RT, when there are many products that can do the same tasks that cost less.

The Google Nexus 10 costs $399 and seems comparable. It has higher screen resolution, but no keyboard.

Lowest price on Amazon for the Surface RT is $520. WTF?

I read in Forbes online comments that a "multi-touch sensor" (whatever that is) costs over $100 per unit. This came after an interesting but very negative article by Adam Hartung.
