It’ll cost you $2,000 for a Samsung UMPC….what??

My pal Marc Perton writes over at Engadget that Samsung is going to sell their UMPC for approximately $2,000 in Korean. What!?!? This thing was supposed to be a sub-$500 machine! Ok, so Samsung will include a bunch of accessories for that price, but lets be realistic here. Can you imagine plopping down that kind of cash and not get a full fledged tablet PC?

UPDATE:  Engadget issued an update in which Samsung claims the actual price in the US will be closer to $700.  Also, it looks like Samsung will release this on May 1 at a launch party in the Bay Area.
