Not only that but the front facing camera absolutely blows chunks and it doesn't have a rear-facing camera either.

I'd gladly pay the extra $150 for what I feel is a better overall design (again, minus the aluminum back) from Apple with features that will certainly come in handy.
I can't stand apple's one button design, I love android's 3 buttons (universal back button, home and tabs). The screen orientation on my nexus 7 work just as good if not better than the Ipad3 I've played around with. And I have flash installed and working on my nexus 7, just because it was pulled from the app store doesn't mean it isn't still distributed by third parties.

The reason I got a nexus 7 is because I liked the Ipad but choose the more affordable route that doesn't involve subscribing to the apple ecosystem, you can't pay me to use Itunes. And I can honestly say the nexus 7 in my opinion is just as cool/functional as an apple device, I wouldn't say it has an edge on the Ipad nor would I say the Ipad has an edge on it.

I can see your argument about the camera, but I'm not the type of guy who takes any pictures at all so I don't even notice.
