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 agree with you. If I was into Android & smaller tablets, the Nexus 7 would be one of the top contenders, but in the end the small amount of storage would play against it.

My iPad 3 has the max storage (64 Gig) and I'm always borderline full. Having to deal with only 16 Gig would give me too much headache. To be honest, maybe I'm just an edge case and most people would be just fine with it.

Also if I was into Android/smaller tablets, I would probably wait and see what Amazon is planning for the next Kindle Fire, as I personally like more controlled eco-systems for my tablets/phones.
