Well, what tablets are available in your area, or are you ordering online? Also, do you have a price range?
I have tested an Archos 7 Home tablet, and it worked ok, but the device wasn't responding yesterday, and I'm not sure why, so take that as you will.
From what I have read, the tablets don't yet have access to the whole Android Market because of the fact they are not always phones, and Google won't give them support. However, that may be changing soon. http://www.androidpit.com/en/android/blog/392577/Google-To-Allow-Tablets-Access-To-Android-Market

I would most likely order online due to the fact that most stores don't carry Android Tablets as of yet. As for price range; I don't want to spend more the $350 (but could if the was a good reason to). Also can't decide between 7" of 10" screen.

Q: Can I use Android Market on this device?
A: In order to qualify for Android Market, the device must have a camera and an accelerometer.
SmartQ devices currently does not have these.
However, you can still download thousands of Apps from 3rd party sites such as www.slideme.org, andappstore.com, and androidfreeware.org. plus many more.
A couple of them works just like the Android Market and lets you download straight to your device.
Slideme.org is a really good one.

Here's another good place to get apps for tablets: http://www.appslib.com/ From the makers of the Archos.

I choose the SmartQ V7 mainly because of the triple-boot setup.. figured it would be fun to mess with until they come out with a Gingerbread 3.0 Android tablet.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab should be revealed on Thursday (and we will be there with a hands-on), so if you are willing to wait that long for an announcement, you may have a winner on your hands with that one. No word yet on the price of it, though.

By the way, the tablet you posted above has some really good specs (especially the battery.) The RAM is definitely lacking in my opinion, which may make things a bit slower. It also appears that 3G connectivity is an option somehow, but doesn't go into detail. Is the ability to access the 3G network and make phone calls a requirement?

No, access to 3G networks and the ability to make phone calls is not a requirement? I did over look the low amount of RAM, thanks for pointing that out.
