Default Price Speculation?

We now know Motorola and Verizon are aiming to take on the iPhone with the Droid after the launch of the iDon't campaign but will they be comparable in price?

Originally I was thinking that the Droid would cost $200 after rebate in order to be cost competitive with the iPhone but now that the Motorola Calgary (check the phandroid main page for info) has been outed for Verizon I'm going to assume that the Calgary isn't going to be less than $150 after rebate. In my mind that leaves the Droid costing more than $200, I think. Probably closer to $250 or $300.

My guess is that the Droid will be $200, and the Calgary will be $100, to compete directly with the iPhone 3GS and 3G, respectively.
