Although, im not against Google or Asus. I wouldn't buy this just for the reason that its 7 inches. Sorry im in the U.S. I would rather a 10 inch tablet. This is the one I told my grandpa to buy (Linky) . I rooted and but a ICS rom on it's great. 300$ is a big price these days and I would not spend it on a 7 inch tablet when my phone is almost 5.


Just get the note :tongue:

This is just a lower end tablet, I'm glad they made this as I'll pick it up even though tablets dont have much use. I either use my Phone or my laptop

i wouldnt even buy the tablet, its really just a giant phone, seriously though what can any android tablet do that your android phone cant?
personally id just get a windows 8 tablet, i am using windows 8 on my acer w500(windows 7 tablet) and i love the OS, everything just works unlike in android, now i dont hate android, in fact i love it on my phone but on a tablet its really pointless, flash doesnt work properly, you cant click on hover menus properly, and it cant properly run java in the browser with windows 8 everything just works even with touch, i can click on hover menus properly, flash works, java works, and im not limited to having to use apps just to access youtube properly, plus i can play full fledged PC games on my tablet(like fallout 3, halo 2, just cause 2, gears of war) and there are some cool features that windows 8 has like xbox live integration, the xbox companion(lets me control my xbox with my tablet or windows phone) and if i switch tablets right now all my apps and data will move across from my old tablet to my new one

tldr
save your money for a windows 8 tablet, it will be a much better buy than any android tab or iPad out on the market

I say it's definitely worth it. It has the newest processor and a gig of RAM, it should be more than fast enough for your Mom. It's fast and portable and cheap!

I dont really think the nexus 7 is that bad, and you shouldnt get your mother an old iPad! It should be fine for light stuff, heck probably even normal usage it has a core quad processor! I'm going to get my mother one since she wanted a kindle fire but those no longer compare to this new tablet at all!

Rumors have amazon putting out a new kindle a little later this year, but i still dont think it will be able to compete :tongue:

I read some of these post and faceplanted. This is a powerful tablet for the price, perfect in the hand, and can compete with some of the high end taplets like the tranformer prime and ipad! For $200 id buy two and throw out that bland ios ipad.
I know its not for you, but ios is so boringgggg

What version of android are you on, & what phone do you use?


Also, Windows 8 was built for tablets, thats why its feels better on a tablet than on a pc, but now android has become more and more optimized for tablets like never before! The apps are being built around tablets now, and things like project butter and jellybean. Just wait and see what google will do next!

i have a galaxy nexus running jelly bean, and dont get me wrong, i love android on my phone, but on a tablet it is just to frustrating, drop down menus dont work properly, you cant run flash sites properly, and it is slow, it lags, and over all it isnt a good tablet experience

when it comes to tablets i much prefer windows 8 because it just works, flash isnt slow, it doesnt lag, drop menus work properly, and over all the UI experience is amazing
now i had many android tablets before one of which being the transformer prime, and the experience was just mediocre for a quad core tablet, my windows tablet i have is running pretty low specs in terms for a windows tablet(1ghz amd c60 apu w/ati radion 6290 integrated graphics and 2gb of ddr3 ram) and my tablet is faster than the transformer prime and it cost about the same for one as well, and its not cause the hardware is lacking, its cause android os isnt great for computers

i use windows 8 rp on all my machines(2 desktops and a tablet) and i love the way it feels on both desktop and tablet, it took some getting use to but after you get use to it, its so easy to use

plus in all reality what can an android tablet do that my phone cant?

How do you even have 8 anyway?

Also, most android tablets suck because none of them were ever made to optimize the true potential of android! The only 2 i can think of that just work are the Transformer Prime and this, The Nexus 7.

windows 8 has been released as RP for a while now, and youre not making any sense, android tablets like the xoom, thrive, icona tab, and the original transformer are not really android tablets?

thats stupid, all android tablets are made to be android tablets and use an optimised version of android to run on the tablet, you cant blame the hardware for lacking when the software is, android just isnt a good tablet OS, if you think it is then great, youre entitled to your opinion, but i feel android is lacking and it always will be, windows got it right and tbh im gonna use windows tablets because i much prefer the OS over android

if you want to continue this conversation please PM me or make another thread and let me know about it so we can debate about it but i dont want to derail this thread anymore than we already have

I heard that they might not even break even with sales.

the nexus tablet?
is it doing that bad with sales?
It isn't even actually out yet. What I believe he is referring to is Google selling them at a loss. $199 for something that has like $190 worth of parts in it.
