Google Nobody needs a tablet, but many people still want a tablet. This is still the core differentiator between a 'real' computer and a tablet. At least in The Netherlands, you can't function in society without a desktop or laptop connected to the internet, so people need a computer. A tablet, though? Hence, the most common thing people have told me when they played with my iPad 2 is this: I'd love to have a tablet, but not for hundreds of euros. Enter Google's Nexus 7, the first 'cheap' tablet that doesn't just validate Android as a tablet platform, but also gives the iPad a run for its money.

I bought an Astro+ 7" tablet for less than £80; don't understand why I should pay more than double for Google's offering.
I don't need the bigger resolution, nor the better GPU. This is a tablet, not a gaming station; nor a multimedia centre: this is for crap like facebook, emails and the like.
