I've got an archaos 10, running Android, 10 inch screen. Cost £300. I'm 
quite happy with it, though I do prefer proper keyboards to those screen 
things. When I was looking at tablets around Xmas, I tried the Samsung 
Galaxy in a couple of shops, and really didn't like it. Expensive, 
misconfigured (that could have been the shops, but I did try it in two 
different places), and the screen (7") was on the small side.

Cons of archaos: it's own limited app market, tho' you can install 
google's version (slightly tricky). The pdf viewers aren't brilliant.

But it very much depends on what you want to use it for.
