Exactly. To those who refute the comments about the cost of manufacturing: Google has more than enough money for R&D, software, manufacturing, etc...even that $36 mil figure is a drop in the bucket to El Goog.
Using regular consumers to beta test your product already reduces those costs by a ton. As I've said before, charging someone to beta test something, is not a true beta test. If you wanted a true beta test, then Google should have handed out a few hundred/thousand units to REALISTIC testers and get the feedback that way.
I still hold hope for a consumer version that is not outrageously priced and also hold hope that Google will take care of their current Explorers in the program. After all, those people shelled out good money to test their product, they should be rewarded at the end of the program.
