Were you one of those who liked what the Eken M001 had to offer for just $108? You’re going to love what VIA’s expecting you to see by the end of 2010. Bloomberg’s reporting that VIA’s Richard Brown – vice president of marketing –  is expecting around 5 different Android-based tablets to contain their chipset and to clock in at $100-$150.

While the performance-to-price ratio for these devices remain yet to be determined, we can’t help but think that any Android tablet would garner some interest at these price points. In comparison, the cheapest model of Apple’s iPad runs for $499, while we’ve yet to see an Android tablet reach the $300 mark (the most expensive one released to date – the Archos Home 7 tablet – retails for $199.99).
