The T-Mobile Pulse Mini running Android 2.1 is currently advertised in the UK at £80 (€95) with a £30 (€35) retail gift voucher *and* 'unlimited' free internet for 6 months worth £20 (€24).
Not bad for £30!

Actually there is already an Android phone close to the €100-price tag with top specs: The ZTE Blade, sold for £99 as "San Francisco" by Orange in the UK, running Android 2.1 (Android 2.2 to come soon), featuring a WVGA OLED display (800*480 pixel), sporting Qualcomm's MSM7227 CPU with 600 MHz (the same the HTC Legend has) and 512MB of RAM. Its build quality is said to be outstanding given the aggressive price.
The phone is also sold in other countries, however mostly with less RAM and LCD- instead of OLED-displays but with a 5MP- instead of a 3MP-camera:
Sapo A5 (Portugal)
Tactile Internet 2 (France)
Libero SoftBank 003Z (Japan)
Base Lutea (Germany)
Dell XCD35 (India)

The popular platform in the US is the Android tablet with wifi only for under $200.00 (thus, no phone contract). This is approaching the price at which you will let your 2 year old child play with it. How much longer before "smart" becomes normal?
