The development incentives aren't promising even for US companies:
Apple reserves the right to force developers into super long prototyping cycles, which easily deplete small project budgets. It's no wonder the Solo carries a $580 pricetag. If Apple can accomplish the same task at $29, it's a shame the barriers of entry are so high for eager developers.
