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.

How about just installing a different browser? I personally quite like opera mobile, and firefox has gotten quite decent as well.

That's fine as far as it goes, but that only takes care of half the problem. If the built-in Webkit rendering engine has issues like this in addition to the Chrome browser, then it's not just the web that's affected. It also affects any HTML widgets in any app and, on Android, that accounts for a good portion of many applications.
