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.

p.s. - I'm posting this from my Libretto 110CT with 32MB ram, Windows 98 and K-Meleon browser.


DROOL!!! I kick myself to this day for ever selling mine. I ditched it when I got my first smartphone, a Palm Treo 650 back in 2006. By the time I realized the smartphone is not a portable computer replacement (and still isn't today, for me at least) it was too late.

I have to say too, the Libretto was a better computer by far than the Atom-based HP netbook I had for a couple of years. Speed isn't everything...
