Cheapest Tablet would be the Advent Vega - around £200 in the UK from PC World/Dixons/Currys - no idea on supply in other countries.

It's a dual-core Tegra CPU running Android 2.2 and it's not Google-sanctioned so out-of-the-box it has no Google Apps (including the Market).

The smart people over at Modaco have created ROMs which re-enable all that stuff - they even have Honeycomb working in a BETA form.

Downsides? Some people think the touchscreen isn't the best (it is capacitive at least) but it's by far the cheapest Tablet IF you don't mind a bit of DIY ROM flashing (and the risk of bricking it ofc.)

After that it's the Galaxy Tab which is smaller, slower and it's a Samsung product so stands little chance of timely upgrades...

After that - it's a lot more money time...
