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 highly recommend the mobile Firefox browser. If you used a previous version (as I did), you probably cringe when you think of Firefox on Android. Well, the latest version is totally redone, and it's lightening fast! It still uses a lot of memory, but it is worth it. I've switch from Opera mobile to Firefox - give it a shot.

p.s. - I'm posting this from my Libretto 110CT with 32MB ram, Windows 98 and K-Meleon browser. It seems ironic to post about the latest high-end mobile device from the REAL first netbook!
