HTC Jetstream review: Again, why is this so expensive?

Does the overly expensive HTC Jetstream tablet earn its high price?

Price matters to everyone to some extent. If you're a prospective vendor planning to sell a tablet that, at its cheapest, is $700, you had better offer something uniquely compelling.

Too many tablets are out there vying for consumer attention and, with limited funds, we need a compelling reason to bite. A tablet that simply does the same things other tablets do in a different package just ain't gonna cut it.

It needs a feature or a quality to stand out, like the Sony Tablet S's ability to play Playstation games or the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1's implementation of its TouchWiz , complete with its music and media hubs.

Check out the full review to see if the HTC Jetstream is worth your cash.
