Dealextreme - 7inch touch screen Android tablet for US$99.90 delivered
Basically similar sort of deal as the $629 iPad, only a fraction of the price. Some drawbacks - probably not as well made, smaller screen, battery only lasts 2 or 3 hours.... ok, it's *NOT* an iPad. Similar, but definitely not the same.
On the other hand, if you think of it as being a cheap wifi enabled photo frame that can be used as an eBook reader, music player, and a few other things.... including probably being able to install any app from the android market (http://www.android.com/market/) well, I'm starting to think it's a bargain.
