As to why there won't be lower-priced processors for 2011 for the time being, Ivy Bridge will succeed Sandy Bridge next year and will once again bring higher end XE series processors to 2011 and high performance, mainstream and entry level products to 1155.
Ah, that's too bad. I was really hoping for that :P
