Cyangogenmod? http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Devices
Or Replicant? http://replicant.us/about/

Not full GNU/Linux, but less infected.

I didn't read somewhere that some of the cheap Chinese tablets will run
GNU/Linux, but don't have details just now I'm afraid.

Certainly doable on high-end units.

Good? Easy? There's the Vivaldi and the PengPod, both in various states
of "may or may not work" or "not released yet".
Which is a shame as the latest PengPod seemed decent, bar the GPU
("Power VR" is apparently major butt-hurt)..

And you have the added complication of importing from the USA.

There's also this:
