One thing I will note is the screen quality's better than the Acer Iconia A100, which seems overpriced for the screen size and the battery life it offers. If it was closer to $199, I might've considered it.
Maybe the Kal-El based tablets will be better overall, but the Kobo Vox is a decent tablet for the price. Plus, I've yet to see an actual sale where they dropped the price that low. The lowest they've ever gotten, that I've seen, is $249 for anything reputable - and there aren't many good 7" tablets out there, ATM. Samsung's overpriced its regular Galaxy Tab 7+, ditto the Galaxy Tab 8.9, and we've yet to see the 7" Thrive that Toshiba announced. Plus, being blunt, full Honeycomb's kinda awful as a tablet interface.
Even HP did better than that, and the TouchPad's SLOW without fixing the logging issues it has.
