Android devices with a "google" badge are usually a good bet for development, 
e.g. you can be confident of unlocking the boot loader - they are the devices 
google uses to drive evolution in the platform. 

Currently I'm working with a Google Nexus 7 (i.e. 7 in tablet); there are 
versions with & without GSM. I believe its made by asus. I know that its 
USB-OTG support works (which I need). Larger format would be the Google Nexus 
10, which is completely different hardware, possibly made by Samsung (can't 
remember). But anything reasonably supported by custom firmware (e.g. 
http://www.cyanogenmod.org/ ) is likely to be ok.
