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.

Why is there any pissing around about how much storage space "is enough" for a user? Each person can decide for themselves what their needs are and it's not something they need to validate or justify with others.

Some people will get a Nexus 7 hard-on, thinking it's the best thing since sliced bread, some will think it's crippled junk, and others will think it's somewhere in between those two. All of that is true, it just matters what "you" think for "your own" use.

Well, if it had a card slot then each person ~could~ decide for themselves. As the basic Nexus stands now, you get <6GB, take it or leave it.

For my needs, no way, not even close. For my toddler that's probably fine though.

Each person can decide for themselves but buying it or not.
