The point I was trying to make in the OP is that Samsung charged nearly double the cost to put a SIM socket in their tablet. They then charged a similar re-double to switch from a telephony enabled tablet to a smaller cell phone with similar capabilities.

More like:

1 price for wifi only table
double that price to add cellular radio and SIM card
double that price again to shrink it down to cell phone size

Small, powerful, or cheap. Pick 2. ;)
