    A few events have taken place recently, and I now feel I am ready to buy my first Android Tablet, somewhere in the 100-230 price range. Id like some helpful input from people with experience.

    Not afraid of simple soldering/rooting/rom-ing, ect

    I got a Best Buy gift card for Christmas, so I will most likely purchase there.
    I figure I need to make a list for myself, I may as well post it here.

    Android experience: Own myself a rooted Droid 3, setup a friends nook with CM7 on SD card. (Tried honeycomb, was not impressed with the market)

    I am falling asleep, so I am done for tonight. I would like to purchase from Best Buy due to the gift card, but if a sufficiently better deal showed up else-ware I would consider it.

    Thanks for reading. Happy 2012!
