This should make for a cool Wii U like controller as well with some remote desktop software.

What Android games are there that are worth playing on a device like this?

Hmmm interesting! I wonder how this compares to the PSP Vita. I may get my son one for Xmas....

Interesting. I had already nudged the wife towards buying me a Nexus 7 for Xmas, but this might be a better option. Have to see how the final specs look.

Well, not a bad idea... android is open, so there's very few limits to what it could eventually be made to do, the hardware is middle of the road, not so advanced as to need a lot of custom drivers and coding, but not so lazy as to not be able to handle most complex droid games. Though I don't see mention of a camera for enhanced reality or ER gaming, which seem to be hot things right now, nor GPS chips for game partner finding or social gaming or such. I suppose more specs will be available closer to launch though.
