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 bought an Astro+ 7" tablet for less than £80; don't understand why I should pay more than double for Google's offering.
I don't need the bigger resolution, nor the better GPU. This is a tablet, not a gaming station; nor a multimedia centre: this is for crap like facebook, emails and the like.

Hum, you do know you're not the center of the universe, right? That other peoples exists other than yourself, and that they have different needs?
