try to lay down on a bed (easy, we do that 7-8 hours a day), then on your back, try to hold the nexus 7 and type on it with other hand, after 10 minutes, you will feel your pain with the ipad, not with nexus 7.
try to put an ipad in your jacket?
try to put an ipad in a woman purse?
nexus7 is the one to go tablet. the ipad is not a pc, and is too big...just a toy to keep at home.but too expensive and not very comfortable unless you read it on your legs...
From looking at the specs and comparing it to the iPad 2 (WiFi only) it surpasses it in EVERY way including pixel density, RAM and of course price! For €200 more, your only advantage in getting the iPad is for iOS and that's only if you prefer it to Android.
Android is now better than ever, the only thing that leans me towards iOS is the quality of it's apps... Android doesn't tend to have as high quality apps, is that true?
Finally, can I just ask - would it be better to get the Nexus 7 or the iPod Touch 4G? Does anyone have both, I'm stuck between them both!
syed, 27 Jul 2012IPad weighs a ton. Priced at 500$. And is a 10inch form factor compare an apple to an apple I am just speculating as to the battery life not weight. Oh, and the iPad does not weigh a ton. Even 100s of them don't.

This is a really good tablet but the only problem is that its only 16GB my phone Xperia play is 32GB and it's full and I even bought another 8GB
The Nexus has a great screen, very sharp, video playback looks ace.
The ability to stack apps into a folder on the home screen is very cool, leaves it uncluttered. (although thats more the new Android version than the tablet itself)
The one I'm using is the 16GB version (not that it makes a difference)
Tabbing, manipulation and gestures are all quick and painless, the quad core makes one hell of a difference. The Tegra 3 chip really provides some nice graphics for the games and doesn't stutter at all.
The touchscreen is accurate, something I find can be a problem with a lot of other tablets.
NFC built in is cool, this is a technology that has been around for some time but is only now really coming into the market in a big way.
The price of this is what makes it a really good buy. £200 for the 16GB version is great.
At this price, it beats the 16GB iPad 3 hands down.
The 7" screen may not be for everyone but it means it's at the more portable end of the Tablet scale.
Asus and Google have definately gone the right way making an affordable, yet good spec, tablet.
The camera is only front facing, which is a the only major thing I don't like. And is only 1.2 MP, yet it still takes half decent pictures. Upgraded photo software processing? Answers on a postcard.
If you're after a tablet with a decent camera, there are better ones out there.
But if you want a Good 7" tablet, I think this one is the best around by a long way.
Oh and did I mention it's only £200. I did? oh, sorry. :)
¿What bluetooth version does the Nexus 7 have? ¿Does support music streaming and file transfer? Thanks

This must be a joke by google make their first Android missing many functions. Why would of buy this device when there is a IPAD or Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 with all the functions.
only 16GB?? and no card slot?? sucks big time!! whats the use of these powerful processors, when you dont have enough memory to install high size HD games.. no way i am going for this. Happy with my 64GB iPad.
it has FM radio?? I doubt
gsmarena, when will you review it?
where the best shop to buy it in the USA??? will be downtown in chicago the 9th august, do you think I can get one???
Anonymous, 24 Jul 2012The new iPad has a huge battery with the same run-time as Nexus 7. Funny, isn't it?The iPad has a huge resolution, larger screen and a powerful GPU, so battery consumption is also higher.
