Hopefully the GameStop tablet is like the Grid 10
tablet that has its own interface and apps, but can also run all Android Marketplace apps.
The Nook Color is also selling well and has its own apps store for apps that work well on the device. I am guessing they are just Android apps, but they have tested the popular ones to make sure they work before releasing them on the device. I don't think you can use normal Android apps on the Nook Color without hacking it, but I can't confirm that. The Nook Color is also only $250 at B&N and $179 refurbished on eBay
from B&N. This makes it more appealing than most of the $500 tablets.
Amazon.com is also working on a rumored tablet that is supposed to be around $250. Will it play Android apps, since they have a Android Marketplace already on Amazon.com or will they make it have its own store?
I could see the GameStop tablet selling well around the holidays when parents and others are going into the store to buy something. They will promote it as a new gaming system that can do more and people will think it may be the best gaming tablet because it is sold by a video game store.
I don't think I will be buying any of these, since I already have a 1st generation iPad I bought on eBay used around last Christmas. Speaking of that, a 1st generation iPad 3G + Wi-Fi is going for $399 on Apple.com
. This is still $150 more than a Nook Color and maybe Amazon's and GameStop's tablets, but it has a ton more apps for it.
