Agreed I'd rather have a higher resolution, but 1024x600 is still good, its the resolution of my nook Color and I'm quite happy with it.

These specs could very well be the same ones Google/Asus bring to the table in the $149-$199 range. And $249 could see a quad-core tablet with higher resolution.
A couple things, one you're basing your facts on a rumor that has not been confirmed--while the Samsung product has hit the market, two ASUS constantly slips their Android products and seems to always struggle in their production, three Samsung just makes better hardware.

Also the rumor for the Asus tablet is it is a Google Nexus and it will not provide SD card slots, it will be a minimal device. Personally I would love to see the ASUS T3 they announced but I don't have a lot of confidence in ASUS

Yes it seems the areas the stripped down aren't that important compared to the savings they offer. The major changes seem to be the chip (1.2GHZ->1.0GHZ) and the memory 16GB -> 8GB.
