The one device considered to be the true Android bargain (at this time) is the Viewsonic Gtablet. Just like the Xoom, when it was released last fall it had several issues (mainly software, but a couple hardware as well). But the Gtablet on the market now has been improved to the point that at $300, it might be the best Android tablet for the money.
There are a lot of analysis that don't consider this a failure, but a success. Given that it's a high end device that requires a data plan and exclusive to Verizon now add it to the fact that it has only been out for a month and it sold over 100K that is a success, of course those numbers don't even come close to Apple but I don't think Moto had that kind of expectation.
