Sure seems that the magical price tag for tablets is around $499.99. The iPad2, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, HP TouchPad, Motorola XOOM, LG Optimus Pad and the BlackBerry PlayBook are priced around this mark. Soon you’ll be adding another one to the mix. The recently announced Lenovo Ideapad is coming to Canada. This is now listed on the Future Shop website for $499.99 and will come with Android Honeycomb (Future Shop says it’s running OS 3.0). The 32GB Wi-Fi only Ideapad has a 10.1-inch display, NVIDIA Tegra 2.0 1GHz processor, a 5 megapixel camera in the back along with a 2 megapixel camera in the front for video calling.

No news yet on a release date.

    RIM should drop the 16gb Playbook’s price already. Having at the same pricepoint as the iPad2 is just foolish.

    I was at Future Shop here in Fredericton earlier. I didn’t see a tag for the ideapad, but I DID see a tag for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and snapped a picture of it. They didn’t have appear to have any in stock or have a demo model, but maybe it’s coming out in the next couple of days…
