Even your final claim is incorrect. Competition CAN hurt consumers - at least in the short run. If Apple is forced to run around in circles and invest money in things that have no real value, that's time and money that could better have been spent on something else. Most of Apple's biggest innovations were not driven by competition, but rather by their relentless internal drive. Do you think the iPhone was based on making a better Blackberry than RIM, for example? Or maybe it's supposed to be a better Motorola Razr? It is often better to stop worrying about the competition and rather start with a clean sheet and figure out what the consumers need.

Fanboys are so pathetic, iphone 5 rumored bigger screen had nothing to do with HTC, Samsung showing there is a large market for phones with larger screens. Didnt apple say 3.5 is perfect and anything over 3.5 is nonsense. Apple notification center that also had nothing to do with android.

 

Android in its current form would not exist without the iphone, but its stupid to say android has not pushed apple to develop their cloud system faster or push their technology. Im sure android having a dual core and quad core chips before the iphone will had nothing to do with apple having a dual core chip and eventually a quad core chip in the iphone. 

 

I mean being a fanboy does not have to equate to stupidity. Without a doubt android phones such as original droid, HTC evo, SGS, SGSII, and SHSIII with google's fast development of android and google themselves have pushed Apple to create better and better iphones. Just like Android would not have existed as we know it today without apple, ios and the iphone as we know it today would be different without Android and its OEMs. 

 

Here is to Apple turning the SGSIII and HTC one X, both amazing products into jokes so the SGS IV could be even better. 

 

Fanboys are so pathetic.

Did android notification system have anything to do with apples new notification center in ios 5?

 

Answer honestly fanboy, steve jobs ghost wont hurt you I promise. 

 

I love apple products im just not blinded. There are other companies out their that have produced and are still producing products that are on par and sometimes even better than apple products. Google is doing an amazing job with android the next few years the back and forth will be amazing, ive gone from iphone to android to iphone and back to android. Microsoft seems to be getting its stuff together still not sure about windows 8, but I will wait before I past judgement. I don't see anyone challenge Apple with laptops, I have never owned anything but mac pros everything else seems not right for me. Key word FOR ME.

They certainly are late, which may also be why they're going for the $200 price point.  Anyone who had $500+ to spend on a tablet most likely bought an iPad.  Apple isn't currently competing at this price point which may make people re-think buying a tablet.  I'm sure there a lot of people who will buy this tablet just because they can now afford one that's worthwhile (unlike the Kindle Fire).  The tablet market is far from saturated and Google is betting that people will want to stay in their ecosystem (read: the Android smartphone users) once it's worthwhile.

Why do you have to go about it a Snobbish way?

People have their opinions, keep your open mindset, don't ridicule other just because they like a certain operating system.

Nut up, or shut up. Fandroids or Fanboi's were all the same.

I like both os's, I own a Nexus 7, you don't see me calling anyone stupid.

I disagree with TS plenty- but he's dead on here.  Android got their idea from Jailbroken iPhones.  Thats like saying Dr. Thunder copied Mr. Pibb, when everyone knows Dr. Pepper was the original.

I didn't know that. Android has always had a notification bar ever since the very first consumer Android phone was introduced in 2008. Had no idea it came from the iPhone hacker community.

$200 price point because Amazon forked Android and did a good job. This is going straight for the Kindle fire. The only shock is that google and Asus were able to produce a product that good for $200. 

 

Producing close to ipad quality for $200 is amazing. I think were getting to a point where everyone will be able to afford a low priced tablet without sacrificing quality. And that is a good thing for all.  Being able to get tablets into the hands of every student without it costing much more than a science textbook, that is magical. And Apple started all of this.

instigating logical thinking seems like a crime here. I know the Apple Kool aid taste good, Ive been drinking it for 7 years and its the best Kool aid around, but google and samsung have really good tasting Kool aid as well. In no way im I dissing Apple, they have their faults like every body else. Im just saying there are others that make good products. Just a mention of Google and the few of you that are fanboys lose it like a dog in heat. Calm down.

The Nexus 7 is getting great reviews and is priced extremely aggressively. There's no reason why it shouldn't do well.

 

He's a fanboy. Thinking is pretty much what he gives up when he gets his Fanboy card. And that goes for Android Fanboys too.

 

I suspect that the Nexus 7 is going to sell quite well. The question now is how will Amazon respond?

 

I really wish Google put a MicroSD into the Nexus 7. I would have ordered one on the spot. This whole "to the cloud" needs to die.

If you had read any of the Nexus 7 reviews you will find that most of them point out, no rear camera, no 3G/4G and no external storage as the "not cool/tired" factors of the Nexus 7. The display at 216 ppi gets very good reviews, it's close enough to retina to not make much difference at that size.

 

It's more of the no external storage that Google is getting flak for. No 3G/4G is minor complaint as is the camera, but the lack of storage on an Android is appalling. Worse yet Google decided that USB OTG for external would not be supported. Granted, it won't be THAT hard to fix that with a root, but they really should have just put the MicroSD in. They have the space as evident from the tear down. They can keep the $25 Google play card and the Transformer move. Just put the MicroSD in and I personally guarantee they'd sell way more.

 

What bothers me is Apple tries to sell this sophisticated, educated aura of its products, but as we see, more than a few idiots are buying its products. They can't even bothered to read about a product they trash. Seriously.

Conclusion main reason to get this tablet is its high quality. Google, and Asus did a great job. Steve Job's ghost wont hunt you down if you admit it. 

 

You really expect a fanboy to actually educate himself on something that could potentially challenge his worldview?

 

Really man. I'm disappointed.

 

I'm waiting for the average user reviews before I commit to buying this for my parents.

It must really bother you that it hits many points on the head and that you people have essentially nothing to counter them except threats of banning. Know what countries lock away people who disagree with the government? Want to go live there?

 

Jesus. Is the moderation here from North Korea?

 

FYI, it's hilarious how you cite that and utterly fail to actually prove anything I say wrong and then put me on moderation. I predict it and then go and prove it.

More like you're just looking for a reason to ban me. It's like ConservaWiki. Just worse (which is pretty bad merely to be compared to them in the first place). At least they let you hash out one argument before they ban you.

 

Fyi, you really are setting the notion that deviation will be dealt a ban hammer. Which essentially proves Android Fanboys are correct in their whole "Apple users are snotty" insult.

 

Thanks for proving that at least some Apple users are in fact [b]worse[/b] than some of the worse Android Fanboys.

Are you really so completely oblivious? It isn't at all about Apple having competition (we actually know about that… we discuss those competitors all the time). Most people posting here aren't protesting or 'spewing hatefully' about competing products at all. Some might have strong opinions, but that isn't remotely "hatred"…  

 

If fact, as I read through this thread, it turns out you're the one doing most of the spewing (back to my question regarding your awareness levels), name calling, arrogance, and confrontation… and most of the strong negatives are directed at you specifically, and this snarky vitriol you've brought to the discussion… most of that has NOTHING to do with the actual discussion surrounding Apple's (or the competition's) products at all.

 

So, I am forced to shoot your question right back at you… do you listen to yourself…? "Dialogue" also does not mean hatred of anyone who criticizes a competing product. 

 

In the opinion of this "Apple-loving, Kool-aid drinking fanboy", you need to grow up a little, or depart the discussion...

All Techstalker did was stand up for a forum member who was initially insulted by a post that, frankly, should have been dealt with by a mod in the first place. Why, in a forum post based on a news article centering around the Google Nexus 7, and somebody says they like the form factor and price point, and declares that they will in fact buy one, should they be accused of not "being able to afford the best" and instead deserve our "pity".

 

That type of post is NOT intended to incite? What was ITS purpose? Did it have anything to do with the discussion? Did the post expand upon a point?

 

No, it was a snarky, mean spirited comment, that provided no baisis in fact, was not relevant to the discussion and obviously did nothing but start a flame war.

 

Many of you on this forum seriously need to get a grip. Repeat to yourselves:

 

"I am not a iPhone, I am not Apple. I am simply an individual who has an interest in Apple products and technology only. An insult to Apple is not an insult to myself, because I am not Apple. People who like other products are not themselves those products. They simnply have an interest in anothers product. BUT we all share an interest in technology. My head will not explode if I hold a Android product."
