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.

1) 16 gig is plenty for local storage

Not everyone has the same usage pattern for these devices. Might be plenty enough for you and most people, but not for others.

2) it is meant for cloud based services more than local media

Not everyone wants to deal with cloud. I have almost everything iCloud turned off on my iPad because I often time have to use it without internet connection.

3) if you are in a situation where you need to have local media, 16 gigs is plenty.

Again, not everyone as the same usage pattern. There's no such thing as a "one size fit all". I'm sure Google did it because it's enough for most users. But many other people definitely may need more.

If the intended usage doesn't fit you, then don't buy it.

I never said otherwise. I'm definitely not buying it ;)
