It is crazy, but the more crap that floods the market, the better the consumer wins with lower prices. Right now tablets are a rip off, maybe in 6 to 12 months we will have killer laptop spec tablets for well under $500!!! Right now anything over $500 is a rip off, so I just sit patiently waiting for a killer android tablet and I have not seen one yet.

Dont forget it will be 35 tablets by years end! If they can compete with ARM great, and if not, to bad. Either way it should help the consumer as stated above.
