Well for my wallet, I don't need a $500 tablet with a full "market". I don't really need my tablet to be a fully functioning PC with hundreds of programs running on it. Most people need a tablet to do very simple basic stuff, which is why the Kindle Fire will be such a big hit. Great price plus built in vertical integration with all of Amazon's proven services.
I think you have to ask yourself if the full Android market is worth the $300 price difference between the Kindle Fire and something like the Galaxy Tab. For me that answer is a resounding no.
