The Android tablet that a bunch of us here in W. WA bought is up on woot.com again today if anyone is interested.
This is a good entry-level tablet and quite hackable firmware-wise. Several of us have flashed "VeganTab" into ours, but there are plenty of other "ROM's" to choose from. I'm waiting for the Honeycomb alpha to become a little less alpha, then will probably flash that into mine.
For WA people: There's a special code you can enter at checkout to get $5 off or so on taxes, if that still works. I think it was "TAXSUCKS" or similar. Do a search and you'll find that. Taxes on mine were $27 or so, shipped from TX. I didn't enter the code.
These things don't have any cell-phone or GPS circuitry in them, but have 802.11 b/g/n. I've heard there's a GPS module you can obtain and put inside. They run U2APRS and APRSdroid.
