Google So yeah, Google totally just won the conference showdown by easily beating both Apple and Microsoft. Not only did Google announce Android 4.1 with some really cool new features, a cheap but non-crippled tablet, and a new Android device called the Nexus Q, but they also opened up pre-orders for Google Glass. So yeah.

I want to reiterate, I'm not saying the Nexus 7 sucks. It actually looks like a great Tablet.

I'm speaking purely from the perspective of it being some game changing feat of engineering like this opinion piece would have you believe.

I don't think just because they announced a $199 tablet that they stole the show from Apple or MS. They just chose to lose money. Noble, I guess, but not revolutionary.

How do you know they chose to loose money? Time for a fact check?

Actually, a JAlexoid pointed out above they get revenue from Google Play to cover costs. Good on Google.

I've since taken back my criticism of the Nexus 7. Its a shot across the bow for the Kindle Fire.
