Early reviews of Google's first Android tablet have been so positive, many are calling it the first real iPad competitor--so much so that Apple might be gearing up its own Nexus 7 killer for the fall. Size, weight, price and, yes, even the OS have industry experts singing its praises, including Apple stalwart Walt Mossberg, who went so far as to call it "a better choice than the iPad for people on a budget." But it looks like Google's race to the bottom with Amazon (the display costs just $10 more than the far smaller iPhone), has had some unfortunate side effects.
So who's going to buy a Google Nexus 7 next week then? We certainly can't wait to see how much of a difference it makes to the tablet market, but while we wait to see, why not check out some of the other tasty treats we've been testing this week!
Microsoft may have impressed with its Surface tablet last week, but this week it's likely to be Google's turn, with the search giant rumored to be introducing its own seven-inch, Nexus-branded slate at the Google I/O developer conference on Wednesday.
