If it's $199 only with carrier subsidy? No thanks.

$200 with optional data plan with NO contract, and I'll consider it.
Biggest problem with high end Android tablets has been two-fold: 1) they are too expensive 2) they require data contracts.
The iPad comes with no such contract, and that definitely helps.

thats not true in the least.
you can get any tablet with our without a contract.. including the ipad. walk into a verizon store and u will find ipads on contract.

most tablets (outside of the US) dont come with plans (unless you want a plan)

As long as its wifi I'm interested. I do like my Kindle Fire, but the lack of the Android Market has really become a pain.

Kindle is e-reader and half tablet it is not a full tablet like iPad and Galaxy Tab so Amazon will used their own Markplace not Android Market. Sorry for Kindle buyers for cheap and useless devices.

I agree with kstagg. Why would I want to buy a tablet with a data plan? I can hotspot with my phone and not worry about it. Although, I am getting super excited about the padfone. A phone turning into a tablet which hopefully can have a laptop dock as well. The "same" device, 3 different forms/functions. My stake is on that for the future.

Um, where was a data plan or carrier subisidy mentioned folks?
At $200, I doubt it has a 3g/4g radio.

if its a 200 tablet without contract that would be awesome. the kindle fire will still smash it with sales as it is a much heavier advertized and specialized product. of course, the geek crowd will fawn for the nexus tablet.
