Toshiba Thrive

It looks like tablets running Google Android 3.x Honeycomb are following familiar territory. Like netbooks a few years ago, many tablets launched with price tags in the $400 to $500 range, but just a few months after launch the prices are dropping. I suspect it won’t be long before we start to see high quality tablets going for under $300. You can already find plenty of budget models running older versions of Android going for well under $200.

Here’s a roundup of some of today’s best deals on tablets, notebooks, and other mobile computers and accessories:

    1. If I had to guess… I’d say pretty bad. 

      If you were going to bite the bullet, I’d suggest going for an Archos tablet or a refurb Nook Color. They both have pretty active hacker communities, so even if you don’t like the out-of-the-box experience, odds are you’ll be able to apply some custom software solutions to make things run a little better. 

    2. Image from your link looks like the Gemei HD8900, here’s a youtube video of it operating…

      Personally I’d seriously consider Brad’s suggestion.  Nothing worse than having no options/support no matter how cheaply you can find the device.
