Has anyone at PLUG tried the so called low cost tablet devices?

I have these expectations, not sure whether these devices would meet:

- A decent browser - good if flash, Java etc supported.
- A decent pdf reader
- X terminal, optionally external keyboard support
- X server such that the DISPLAY can be exported
- Ability to ssh to/from other device
- mutt, vi etc.
- wifi and optionally 3G connectivity
- form factor good enough for occasional reading activity

Do these sound too much for low cost tablets? Hope not.
