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.

Nice review, thanks! Now I've read an article today ( http://www.theverge.com/2012/8/10/3226295/news-flash-surface-pro-ha... ) about all this PPI "cold war" thing and I'd consider that N7 217PPI should be more than enough to be "equal" to iPad3 264PPI. Nevertheless it would be interesting to see both devices side by side to compare them live.
