    The Acer Iconia A500 Android Tablet, aluminum-shell Wi-Fi only model, is now available for $450 bucks at Best Buy. This Tegra 2 and Honeycomb powered tablet is the 16GB Storage version, and is a pretty sleek looking device. That's a decent price, but with the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer coming out tomorrow for $50 dollars less, I think we should see a price-drop on this baby very soon. What do you guys think?

    I'm still holding out for the A100 to see if it is shipping with Honeycomb installed or if the rumor that 1080x720 minimum is the rule for Honeycomb. We've seen rumors pro and con, and I'm hoping to see a 7 inch shipping WITH Honeycomb (ie the Lenovo or Acer putting up with the A100) before I make a decision on getting a tab. I almost went out and got a Nook last night but fought the gadgetaddiction monster and cooled down.
