Looks like you can pick up one of the Android Galaxy Tabs for $399 with a two year contract. I feared they would lock them into a contract, and that fear came true. Of course you can buy an unlocked one, for what sounds like $650, but meh, not helpful in schools.
So…where does that leave Android tablets in education? At this point, I am uncertain. I really like the Galaxy Tab, but I would not know how to make the contracts work. We already pay for administrator cell phones, and while we may be able to secure eRate funding for the data on these, putting many of them in the hands of students would be a costly, recurring fee. Definitely does possess some advantages over an iPad, with cameras, HDMI out, and some other features, but that contract still looms large over them.
