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.

Very happy with my Nexus 7 but disagree about the front facing camera.

The second camera would be useful in video calls and for taking pictures of receipts with an app like Lemon (which is not yet compatible with the N7 perhaps because of the missing front camera issue).

I'd pay another $35 for the second camera. But subtract $40 if the manufacturer pre-loads a non-default UI.
