PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Cheap Android tablets are all over the place, and generally not any good. They often have resistive touch screens instead of capacitive ones, are slow, or have no access to the Android Market. For Ice Cream Sandwich, MIPS Technologies is trotting out its existing Honeycomb tablet - which, you guessed it, uses a MIPS processor - licensed to Ainovo. For some reason, that makes this $99 tablet with capacitive screen kind of interesting.

Though I disagree with Uncle Fester's original point, I do agree with this. There's still plenty of untapped market for tablets, particularly for kids. However, my kids have iPod touches, and they're actually a little bit more practical for a lot of the things mentioned here (entertainment) precisely because they're smaller and more portable.

But of course the ipod touch costs $200. I think that cheap tablets will probably spur Apple to do two things: an intermediate tablet between the touch and the ipad, and pushing the price down until the touch is $99 and they have a 7" tablet for $199.
