$499 seems to be the standard starting price of tablets – PlayBook, iPad, TouchPad, & More

I guess $499 is the catchy price for tablets nowadays.  Apple kicked it off first with the iPad starting it off at $499, both last year for the first generation, and this year in the second.  Next we have the BlackBerry PlayBook, which RIM hasn’t even came out the closet yet on pricing, but based off of leaked documents we saw a starting price of $499 as well.

Then there’s the HP TouchPad (which has a UI lookin’ just like the PlayBook) which also starts at $499.  All three with that starting price get 16GB of internal memory, and then you’ve got all other specs that vary in your favor.  In a non-biased perspective, which tablet has all of what you want?
