The 8J is not anywhere near sale so the pricing is not even known yet.
even if the chipset is used across brands the formware on it is still proprietry and each company will do its own development and testing before releasing it in a sale item.
Larer companies tend to make decisions via committee whereas FrSKY being a smaller company they can make decision faster and respond faster. That is the advantage of being small; speed and agility.
