Cheap Android Tablet

At $300 or less, I find the Acer Iconia A500 tablet to be one of
the most affordable REAL tablets. It has the Nvidia Tegra dual core,
32gb ram, mini and regular usb slots, gps, micro sd slot, tactile feel
and more. I've actually seen it go on sale for $275, and that is so
cheap for a tablet of this quality level as to be surprising. 

Gtablet may be found cheaper, but the return ratio is massive because of
a broken OS and stupid design. I rooted mine and installed several OS's
on it, eventually keeping Cyanogen. 

The Acer has been a zillion times
better and lower in cost.
