Google So yeah, Google totally just won the conference showdown by easily beating both Apple and Microsoft. Not only did Google announce Android 4.1 with some really cool new features, a cheap but non-crippled tablet, and a new Android device called the Nexus Q, but they also opened up pre-orders for Google Glass. So yeah.

Those price points are impressive, if an OEM can recoup the costs. You're not telling me they're making any kind of profit on those devices. Amazon sells at a loss and their specced lower.

ASUS has no ecosystem to make money off of, unlike Amazon. Unless Google is doing some sort of Marketplace and Ad revenue market sharing. Its unsustainable. They're just hoping to be a loss leader into some market share.

Like I said, Project Butter still isn't working..The Verge said that the smoothness still isn't up to par..4 CPU cores later.
