This is a bigger deal than people might realize.  If Android actually
exposed more of the Linux underpinnings it might be somewhat useful to
me, but as it stands it is essentially just a toy.  Unless and until I
get a full-power OS (preferably a real BSD Unix) on a tablet, no amount
of peripherals, ubiquitous network connection, and internal power will
make up for the simple fact it's just a damned toy.
