Remember Acer's quad-core tablet that managed to beat out ASUS' Transformer Prime by a pretty wide price difference? It's available from Amazon for an easier-on-the-wallet $450 right now. If you're holding out for the silver version, you can still place a pre-order with Amazon here. In case you need a refresher, here are the specs:

  • 10.1-inch 1,280x800 display
  • Quad-Core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 32GB built-in storage with microSD Card slot
  • 5MP Rear shooter, 1MP front-facing camera
  • 9,800mAh battery for 12 hours of continuous video playback
  • Android 4.0 with Acer Ring

The Olympics-branded tablet is an attractive choice for those who are looking for a budget tablet that doesn't strip away features that the bigger players share.

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Which Keyboard Do You Use On Your Android Device?

Let's be honest: Android tablets didn't really get off to a great (or timely) start. After the iPad was introduced, Samsung rushed the original Galaxy Tab 7 out the door as a response, and while it wasn't bad on its own merit, it came nowhere close to the iPad.

Archos may not make the most headlines for its series of mid-range tablets, but occasionally, one of them deserves a mention. The Archos 101 G9 is a strong contender for your money if you're on a tight budget. The savants among you may want to hold off for a Galaxy Note 10.1, or whatever Google is cooking up for its tablet line. Still, with prices starting at $270 for the 8" 8GB version to $330 for the 10" 8GB version, it's difficult to ignore.

About a month ago, we saw Lenovo's previously unknown IdeaTab S2109 hit the FCC, providing a glimpse of little more than the company's new 4:3 tablet. At the time, Engadget's tipster claimed it sported a 9.7", 4:3 IPS display, TI OMAP chip, four speakers, and microSD. Turns out they were on point with all of that (though not about the March launch date, obviously), and today, the company has released an official reveal video for the tablet.

Adding a tempting new device to the current pool of affordable 7" tablets, ZTE and Sprint introduced the 3G-connected Optik in February, bringing to market a great 7" display, Android 3.2 Honeycomb, and an ample 1.2GHz dual-core snapdragon processor, all for $99 on a new contract. In a nutshell, the Optik is a decent 7" tablet for those on a budget. While it isn't the best tablet around, it's powerful enough for most tasks, feels great in the hand, and isn't too bad to look at.

Android, as a platform, has an advantage in that apps designed for phones scale to tablets dynamically, so many are functional without a proper tablet interface. The disadvantage? Some developers take their sweet time making said tablet interfaces. Twitter, for example, is still a giant, stretched-out version of the phone app. Enter Plume, an app that sticks much more closely to the ICS design style guide.

While adhering to the style guide may not always be enough to make an app great, Plume provides a highly-customizable UI that makes use of the best parts of Android's new design elements.
