  Great value, though some gaps,  2013-02-01
By BenC

This is a great value compared to iPad and even Galaxy, Nook and Kindle 7" tablets similarly configured. I needed a smaller tablet with mobile data capability and others were far pricier for similar specs.

That said, the Android OS is not nearly as slick or complete as the iPad OS. For example, with iPad I can insert (into a pricey adapter) an SD card with photos and video and the built in app will fire up and download (if I want) the files. On Nexus one needs to also buy a special adapter but then buy a third party app as well. Even then the process is not as seamless as on my the iPad.

Moving around and deleting some of the unwanted apps that the come installed on the Nexus and clutter the home screen is also more cumbersome.

Nor is there an iTunes equivalent. Google Play is not there yet.

The display is as sharp as one would need. The back, while not as elegant as the iPad, is practical, comfortable and attractive enough. Overall it's design is a step up from the Kindle.

Though I have focused on some weaknesses compared to a similarly configured iPad mini, the iPad would be $260 more--about 87%. For many scenarios of use I highly recommend the Nexus 7 for serious consideration against the competition.
