    When you say the carrier subsidizes the price, is the price you referring to the actual sale price versus the MSRP?

    The prices listed are with contract, subsidized. This phone is extremely expensive because it’s expected to be a low-volume seller.

    The only people who really want this phone are either:

    1) Those who love Windows Mobile 6.5 but hate Windows Phone 7 (no native code, etc).
    2) Don’t find Android/webOS to be acceptable other options, or
    3) Need Windows Mobile due to their employment.

    Those three factors make for a very small niche, and thus, a high with-contract price.
