Google Nexus Tablet
Though I have only seen this tablet on you tube, it has no back facing camera, no HDMI port, it only has 8 gigs of storage (for $199). My playbook is a better device except for the content. I admit that day to day I will not use all the content available on Google but the day I want to watch a certain movie or subscribe to a certain magazine even or newspaper the nexus will provide a better experience to the average non technical user. Don't get me wrong, I love my playbook. I just wish RIM had done better job at partnering with mainstream companies.DROID X

I am actually intrigued. As a well-known tablet skeptic (at least, in my mind), I feel it is priced right and has the right mix of features to actually help me overcome my general specific disdain for Android tablets.
And it is rocking Jelly Bean...

Looking at the device in action, it looks like they have to push up the specs just to get the Jellybean UI functioning smoothly.
Thats not a good sign.
The new iPhad has a similar feel. Speed up the transitions so it looks like the system is smoother and the jitter hopefully becomes small enough to go unnoticeable.
I'll hold out for quality coding ala RIM and QNX, not another patch on the patchwork OS that Android has become.

I've noticed on my ASUS Transformer Pad that the stock ICS launcher bogs the system down so badly that it gets really laggy. I have to use an alternate launcher to make the tablet usable. Currently using Go Launcher for Tablets app. The system becomes buttery smooth and lag free with it.
