Sure it's smooth! Since it's so old n functionality... With every new launch they invent new things that were introduced on other platforms for years (eg android). Stick to iDevices, they don't require too much brain energy to be operated for basic things...

Is Google Nexus 7 GSM enabled? Can we use the device as a mobile phone even?

I don't think that any of the major platforms are without problems.

The thing that is certain is the more fanboys we have the less progress we get. Fanboys always think they are supporting an industry but they generally just stifle progress.

Sad to see so many Android fanboys here. There are some huge flaws on Android. It gets even worse when you evaluate Android as a tablet OS.

Which means that home screen scrolling and stuff like that feels laggy on the iPad 3.
