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.

I don't need to "try", I actually know.
Sure with the most crappy panel, soft plastic and so on. A capacitive panel is still rather expensive.

Rockchip, Via WonderMedia and Amlogic devices are are cheap, anything with a proper CPU is much more expensive.

You link to an article that says how much Tegra3 costs, without any mention of how much actual devices cost. Next time try contacting an actual Chinese manufacturer for a quote. I use quite a few contacts that I have left from my career in procurement.
