PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless 2011 will go down in the history books as a great year for tablets mostly for Apple's iPad however, not all tablet vendors fared as well as Apple. It's not for lack of products that prevented Android tablets from taking any market share away from Apple this year. By our calculation, over 100 tablets were introduced since the iPad however, we defy even the most tech-savvy of you to name more than a few of them. What was so wrong with the competition that it failed to make any inroads in the tablet market, at least until the Amazon Kindle Fire and Barnes & Noble Nook came along?

Still waiting...

I'm still waiting for the perfect 7in. android tablet. I want something with 1280x800 resolution, microsd slot, at least 16gb storage, dual core 1ghz minimum, 1gb ram, microusb port, and bluetooth. The ideal price for me is $299.

I've considered a galaxy tab 7 plus, but the lack of microusb is a deal breaker for me. I've also considered a kindle fire, but no microsd is a no go.

I'm strongly considering getting a 7in. toshiba thrive, although its a little more expensive than I would like. The nook tablet would be ideal if only the bootloader were unlocked...

Those are the things that are personally keeping me from buying an android tablet. I recently came across this link http://www.spemall.com/Tablet-PC_c.html they seem to have a bunch of generic android tablets for cheap.
