I'd snatch it right up, but I already have a Nook Color running CynaogenMOD 7 and love it.

I hear ya. I heard about this this morning when it was still a rumor and thought, "Hmm, I've always wanted to see what all the Android fuss was about, but don't want to give up my iPhone or iPad." Now, if I'm really curious, I can check it out for $200 and see for myself. Then dump it on eBay or Craigslist if I don't like it.

Google will probably add downloadable maps to their iPhone/iPad map apps as well. It is not any competition to Apple.

As underpowered as it may be, the Nook Color has also been successful, even though B&N doesn't have nearly the same content ecosystem that Amazon has on the music and video side... but it does have Netflix, Hulu, and Pandora, which is a pretty good start... and it's only $169, which compares favorably to the Kindle Touch's ad-free version at $139.
I think there's definitely a market for cheap tablets - it remains to be seen if and when Apple will produce a device which is less than $200 but maintains the high quality of the iPad.
