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.

"Chrome on the desktop is - by a huge margin - my favourite browser. .... and has a superior tabbed browsing implementation."

Say what? Superior to what? Lynx?

I am researching 5 separate topics at the moment and have 50 different tabs open.
My tab bar isn't crowded because they are grouped together in stacks.
I have a history of 100 tabs that I can open - all with full browser history and I can reopen any one at any time.
I can drag the tab bar down to see a preview of all of the tabs at once.
I get page previews of tabs as I roll over them.
I can mix private tabs with normal tabs.
I can tile or cascade my tabs.
I can place my tab bar at the top, bottom, left or right.
I can open my new tabs in the foreground or the background.

Tell me again that Chrome has a superior tabbed browsing implementation, because from here it looks pretty inferior to me......
