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.

16gb builtin is definitely not enough. That's the reason I bought an archos g9 for my dad. 80gb builtin storage, gives plenty of room to manage his picture collection when on holiday (he can shoot 16gb in a couple of days).
While I do travel with a laptop and sometimes external hdd, he does not. And not having to take a laptop along was the main selling point for buying the thing.
Only complaint: the device should have come with a builtin sd card reader, or plain-size usb adapter. Transferring data over is still a bit too complex for the luddite-user, non-wirelss scenario
