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.

Ahh, my bad, I had forgotten about the proprietary connector. All I remembered was speed and that it was EDO.

EDIT: And I see what you mean about the price. It's about half what you would pay for a beat-up, used to death Libretto on eBay. I did put in a quote request at one wholesaler just for kicks, we'll see what happens. ;)
