Affordable Android-powered iPad-like Tablet Computers Galore: While browsing through dealextreme.com, a popular online shop for electronic products here in Asia, I was really surprised to see several iPad-like tablet computers that are sold for as low as $99 (US). Another surprising thing is that they are all powered by Android.

I'm also amazed that some of these Android tablet computers have key features that are absent on the iPad such as built-in camera, MicroSD slot, and Ethernet port among others. You may think that I'm kidding, so I've gathered some of them here:

Because of their budget-friendly price and their open source, hackable Android OS, I gave in and bought the first one from the list above. Although it may lack the killer features of the Apple iPad, I believe it will give me more value for my money.
