I really feel bad for Nexus 7 8GB early adopters, their tablets are worth considerably less than what they paid after this press release.
The specs aren't anything to jump for?? What??

the nexus 4 has the fastest processor in any smartphone right now. It has 2GB of RAM, no other phone has more than that. It has one of the best screens and at 320ppi. Sure the storage is lacking and it has no LTE but the price? it's f**cking half the cost of any smartphone that is even close its specs. Half. And the build quality looks quite impressive to me with gorilla glass 2 front and back, curved edges on the front and extended frame to prevent smashing while dropping.

The nexus 10 has the new exynos processor which is no slouch, also 2GB of RAM, and by far the highest res screen of any tablet. I'd say the best tablet period right now, and it's $400. Much cheaper than the competition and better in every way except storage capacity which is only important for certain people. Sure it looks funny but it's not a T shirt! lol

Nexus 7 is even more impressive now with the storage increase. Spits all over the iPad mini announced a few days ago at quite the cost savings...


Color me impressed, we have nothing to complain about because not only did google announce some quite impressive devices, their pricing is simply AMAZING and that is innovation more than any other company is doing right now. This is exciting, google is competing hard right now. This is what the industry needs to lower costs of technology.

And the new android 4.2 improvements look fantastic and basically make cyanogenmod obsolete... lockscreen shortcuts, quick settings, etc..

Yeah but they've had it for 3 months now, and they got $25 for google play. My galaxy note sure ain't worth what it was brand new... especially now
