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.

Project Butter? Really? Because The Verge says that it STILL isn't as smooth as an iPad.

First: The Verge is not the be-all-and-end-all of tech reporting and even if they pretend not to, they have their fair share of bias and everything they write should be taken with a (very big) grain of salt.

Second: The 16 GB Nexus 7 costs $249, the cheapest 16 GB iPad (2) is $399 while the latest and greatest 16 GB model starts at $499, therefore price should be taken into account when comparing them.

Third: Some people prefer 7", so even even the iPad is "better", that doesn't help them until Apple makes one (and I think it's a matter of when rather than if).

In other words, the Nexus 7 should be considered as a direct competitor to the Kindle Fire, not the iPad.
