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 was in a UK retailer today. I played with both a Nexus 7 16GB (£199) and. Playbook 16GB (£129) and with in five minutes, it became apparent the Nexus was the way to go. Issue now is that getting one s impossible t the moment. The store I was in had just the display unit, and no idea when more stock was going to be coming. I'm just have to buy online.
