Well yes, if you buy 1000.  If you buy one it costs 2.5 times that.
Their volume discounts work out to quite a bit.  Their business is
supplying other companies for use in their own devices.  Not ensirely
sure what the intend of this little box is.  This is unfortunately true
for most embedded style boards.  It is never cheap if you only need 1.

We use the iGLX processor module in a router where I work.  At the
volumes we use, we still find them quite expensive.
