I caught the articles on engadget right when they leaked. Awesome price for what you're getting. Almost TOO competitive lol. I'm not currently in the market for a tablet but that price is damn tempting. I'm really hoping these will cut a chunk out of the IPad's market share.

Looks killer for the $$. Just ordered one. Needed something small and cheap to bring with me to europe. Seems like the best 7 inch on the market.

That's what I'm thinking. I've got the galaxy note so this is not that useful to me, but the price is so good I still just want one!

Plastic back? Not thanks.

EDIT: Rubberized back. SOLD!

Hopefully it will have proper stylus inputs. Was hoping for a 3G option but I guess we can't have it all. ;)

I would love to see a 32GB model, however 16GB is perfect enough for me. And the price is phenomenal in my opinion
