  First thing you do on Android device (or should do) is set your browser to Desktop mode - it makes the nonsense of mobile browsing a bit more tolerable - those devices will not count.
so iOS has 65% and Android 20% of 6.37 total mobile share   Real news here is that most people are not dumb enough to use a mickey mouse OS for their main web browsing use. Most use a PC/laptop running a real OS. 
finally!... we had chrome beta and now full on our test Android tablets at work - and it is amazing... Finally dropping Safari will be great (how it does not have a unified search window is mind bending) Chrome left Safari in the dust on Desktops will be interesting to see what it does on iPad. The not being able to be set as default is just another idiotic artificial limitation of iOS
As a shareholder your only concern is that the company makes money - not all business models are the same. There is always something that you sell at a cost or give away to provide a greater good in the business model - if the cost are non material and benefits the higher margin service you do it - To just go and think value is based on a margin in business is false in my opinion.   As a consumer outside that world taking advantage of those options is one of the few...
Google as a company makes a profit regardless on the margin on the android devices and the Nexus line is not going anywhere - if anything it is being expanded. Also this is not a one company race - the "investment" in the android ecosystem you carry with you to any manufacture so nothing is lost.   This argument is as idiotic as thinking that MAC OSX is garbage because Apple sells it at 20 dollars with very little to no profit - OSX is not the business model. Just like...
Because the viability of the company is not dependent on the sale of the item or its margin - it is being sold at cost due to that reality, it is a means to an end - That is to your benefit. The Nexus line can not be seen in a vacuum, it is only part of a larger business model... as the consumer, the margin on a Nexus 7 is irrelevant - just as it is irrelevant to Google.    You can also see reflected on the partner Google picked - ASUS is a top tier PC component maker -...
take a little time and focus on the name on the device and realize why it is not.
guess you did not read about "Invincea" or the 787 Dreamliner?
why do you care as a consumer what their margin is
once consumers only wanted an iPhone, look at us now... times change - one of the many great things about the tech world.   I for one just use my iPad at the office for testing at this point - my Galaxy Tab 7 from Verizon is a much nicer size for my subway ride, this could be a nice update (have not use much of my data service so do not thing I'll renew my plan)
