’s item of the day is a ViewSonic gTablet 10.1″ Multi-touch Tablet for the sweet price of only $269.99.  That is a deal that is hard to pass up.  With a price like this you can buy more than one.  You know, for those special occasions like when you are reading iWoz (Steve Wozniaks biography) and trying to beat your girlfriends high score in fruit ninja.  The gTablet isn’t a native Honeycomb device.  But we know as soon as the source is released it will be running CyanogenMod or some other custom ROM goodness.  I know pershoot has one of these, so we know the kernel is getting lots of attention.  The specs are posted below:

What else do you need to be told?  An Android tablet running Nvidia’s Tegra 2 processors, that will be running Honeycomb as soon as the community gets the source for the OS from Google. Which actually might be the code for Android OS Ice Cream Sandwich depending on how they decide to release it.
