Google IO attendees were given a nice gift in the form of a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. It is running Honeycomb and a is slated to receive a fresh upgrade to the responsive Android Honeycomb 3.1 in a few weeks.   The expected price for a stock WiFi only model is $399.  That is without the special imprint of  the Android mascot adorning the limited edition backing.  This s a very intriguing price point and about where an Android tablet can be expected to sell well.   It looks to be a formidable tablet but the implementation of Touch Wiz is certain to only serve to delay any future upgrades to the device.
