The current Android HoneyComb Tablet generation is starting to sell for less than $300. Earlier today NewEgg offered the Toshiba Thrive for $299.99. This deal is sold out now, but do not worry there are more to come. See this report on the reasons for the dropping Android Tablet prices. The best Black Friday 2011 Tablet deal we know about so far is the $249.99 Asus Eee Pad Transformer advertised in the Best Buy Black Friday 2011 Ad.
The Asus Eee Pad Transformer is one of the most popular Android HoneyComb tablets. It's unique Keyboard dock (sold separately) makes it a full laptop. The regular price of the Asus Transformer is $399.99. It has a 10.1-inch screen, Tegra 2 CPU, 1GB RAM and 16GB of storage.
At $249.99 it is the lowest priced 10.1-inch Android HoneyComb Tablet with 16GB storage I have seen so far. You should be aware that Asus will release a new Tegra 3 Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime still this year, that replaces the Transformer.
Best Buy has several tablet deals advertised for Black Friday, but the Asus Transformer is clearly the best deal. I was actually expecting more stores to offer Android tablet bargain deals on Black Friday, but that did not materialize. I do not count those $100 7-inch Android 2.2 and Android 2.3 tablets, as they are only of limited use. A lot of times the only advertised tablet is the Kindle Fire, which ships since yesterday. We have found all Black Friday 2011 tablet deals and listed them in our Black Friday 2011 Tablet Deals Guide.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
