The budget-friendly Excite Pure could be my next tablet. I'll have to see the reviews, once it comes out.

I think part of it will depend upon how much Toshiba mucks with the stock Android distribution. IME, and from everything I've read, more evils than benefits are caused by manufacturers and TelComs messing with Android.

Exactly my thoughts. That's why I'm waiting for the new Nexus 7.

The tablet most likely will be unrootable. Toshiba locks their tablets down, very unlikely any custom recoveries or roms.
