True. I have one and it's pretty great but I agree, it was overpriced before the firesale.
Installed CyanogenMod 9 and Ice Cream Sandwich on mine and it runs very very well. You can pick up 32gb Touchpads new or refurb for as low as 200 bucks from time to time and vendor to vendor. Not as cool as the 100 firesale but still worth it for the screensize,performance,and storage imo.
nice! isnt CM 10 out? or not yet? I cant remember, i stopped following the CM forums since i dumped my Evo. I have no need to root my Galaxy right now, which is why i just stopped following CM's updates
