    Hello happy123, you can buy the iPad now. The Nexus is not available until October? It is very hard to compare a real product with something that does not yet exist.

    Too hard to say at this point. As always with these tablets, it will be the apps that make or break it. Apple may not always have the best hardware or specs but it's hard to argue against the number of quality apps for the iPad and apples excellent customer service. The nexus will have to beat them in these areas. It's possible but will be very tough. We'll see by October.

    I don't want to sound like a Android basher here....But no Matter How much Android tries ( I mean looking at so far till now ) all their desperate attempts so far to Match the user friendly UI and the ease of use that iOS has to offer and the quality of APPS the APP Store has...At the moment it is unmatchable, Apple APP Store and he UI friendliness of using a Apple product looks invincible.

    The new Nexus 7 interests me greatly and I may actually pick one up. However, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is still going to suffer from the same flaws as every other Android tablet out there. It is STILL and phone OS operating on a tablet. I have even heard that while using the tablet on the home screen you cannot even rotate it to landscape mode. Android is a fun operating system but it takes tweaks to make it fully enjoyable (for me at least). However, since selling off my higher end android phones I have not been able to use many of the apps I have purchased over the years. It will be nice to have access to those again. I will most likely opt for the 8GB model since it will not be a primary device.

    The nexus 7 is very nice; light, snappy, feels good in your hand. Jelly bean is much better than any other version of android. But it is no iPad 3. I have several important apps that won't work on it. I'm pissed about that. There have been some screen problems and some problems with the touch screen (one has to do with the screen not being attached properly and the other has to do with the touch screen misbehaving once the device gets hot - like when playing a game). The screen is nice, but again, it is no iPad 3.

    If you don't have any android apps already it maybe a good choice for you, but there are lots if things you can't do on the 7 inch screen. Depending on what you intended to use it for, this may not be much of a limitation.

    Im still happy with mine. If I can get those apps working, I can be happy with this thing for my android fix.

    I also wanted something more portable, for walking around with, than my iPad. I got an 8GB iPod Touch, and it's been great. This was before the Nexus came out, but I think I might still go for the Touch. I have to admit, howlever, I might get a Nexus too!
