Just a little update for anybody still looking...

If size doesn't matter.. you have a few options in the 7-8 inch screen size variety...

Vizio Tablet 8" LCD  ~$165.00-180.00
Acer Iconia Tab A100  7" LCD~ $215.00-249.00
HTC EVO View 4G/HTC Flyer 7" LCD ~ $199.99 - 235.00
Blackberry Playbook 7" LCD ~ $199.99 (if you can still find it)

and of course....  Kindle Fire 7" LCD ~ $194.99 - 199.99

Prices will vary depending on where you shop (i.e. Amazon.com, Ebay Resellers, or Google shopping) 

I picked up the Acer A100 from Gamestop on Black Friday for $250 and I use it every day...  I actually have grown to prefer the smaller size over the 9-10 inch variants and it does everything I need it to do.  I got a slightly better deal on the Evo View 4G for my wife's Christmas present  (It came with a Stylus and case) from a Slickdeals Hot Deal.   

Prices may go lower with the arrival of Tegra 3 tablets at the start of next year, and accessories are becoming more available.   Now's definitely a great time to jump into the pool.
