We first saw Toshiba's mysterious 10-inch tablet at CES running Froyo, then at MWC it was already announced with Android Honeycomb, but at both events we were left wondering about the name …

Yes it's nice but the prices are too high. The Asus Eee Transformer to me is so far the best tablet pound for pound! I just don't see why I would pay $500.00 for the 16 GB Toshiba ANT when I can pay $400.00 for the Asus Eee Transformer tablet & $150.00 for the keyboard dock. It's a no brainer. I really was waiting for the prices for the Toshiba ANT to be cheaper but no such luck. For me Asus Eee Transformer still can't be touched!

Do tell, where are you finding this Asus tablet for $400? I am looking around all the usual suspected places like Amazon and Newegg, and they all have Windows Asus tablets, but no Android. A quick google search turns up the Asus TF101 as an Android tablet, but one website appears to have a price tag over $800 and another is $545, and neither of them are websites I've ever heard of, nor do they even have pictures. If I can find one for $400, I'd be glad to pick one up, otherwise the Toshiba doesn't seem bad, especially when you can always get more SD cards.

This website said the price is going to be $399.99 for the 16 GB, also so did androidandme.com. It's going on sale as per these two websites at the end of this month. I just don't see any other tablet with these sweet specs for the price that Asus is going to charge. Like I said pound for pound it can't be touched! I am sold, my wife wants a smaller tablet. Once there is a 7 inch Honeycomb tablet that is available I will be picking it up for her. 10.1 inch just too big to put in her purse.
