Here's one of the Tegra2 powered 7" Tablets shown to be distributed by Verizon including 3G internet access.
They have Windows CE on it for now, but they plan to have Android running on it soon. Check also my previous Menq video review of the Menq EasyPC E790 which is based on the same hardware as this Menq Tablet.
ApusOne provides ARM based SoC for cheap Laptops, Tablets and set-top-boxes. They are demonstrating their platform running Android and Windows CE. The Apus One MAP100 processor decodes 720p at 300mhz and next generation Apus One MAP200 processor can decode 1080p/i at 800mhz. Bill of Material for an Android Laptop with 720p playback is $70, the 4.8" Android Tablet would be $70 and the set-top-box is only $30.
They worked on it since my IFA 2009 video, now the design of this Samsung ARM9 based 4.8" Android tablet is closer to final. It seems responsive, fast, they are showing it with the Google Marketplace integrated (probably a hack for now) and they are basically saying that it is final and ready to be shipped to distributors.
This 7" Tablet will have a $199 MSRP with built-in ATSC and a plan to have the Google Marketplace integrated. They are also saying that they will provide ARM Cortex based Chrome OS netbook.
Marvell is showing a demonstration of Chromium OS running on their Armada 510 processor. There are still a lot of optimizations that need to be done to utilize hardware acceleration to optimize the web browser speed.
Here's another 7" Android tablet, which can also be used as a TV remote control.
It runs Windows CE for now, but they are working on an Android version as well.
It has both a 6" e-ink screen and a 3.5" capacitative touch screen LCD that runs Android. So the Android screen is thus able to do all kinds of advanced things and interact with contents to send over the the e-ink screen.

Hivision which I filmed in my very popular video from IFA 2008 have worked very hard to port Android to their latest ARM9 500mhz 7" mini Laptops. They offer an extremely impressive fast and Android integration, with a surprisingly fast Android web browser over WIFi and Ethernet. The price for the laptop at retail could be $149, more or less, it depends on the distributors.
They borrowed me their 7" Android Laptop for the next few days. I am very impressed with the speed of web browsing on this device. I will do an extensive video review one of these next few days, especially showing you the web browsing speed considering this version of Android is not even yet optimized by Google for Laptop form factors.
