DO YOU PLAN ON BUYING THE NEW GOOGLE TABLET? Does Google's $199 tablet target $499 iPad or Kindle Fire? Some analysts believe Google's real target for new Nexus tablet is Amazon, not Apple

The Tablet war is on any every one is trying to sell a tablet that cost less than Apple but will do as much as Apple's tablet. The hard part is the fact that these new 300 tablets just can't compete with the Apple's tablet.


The report said the Nexus 7 will run the latest Android version, Jelly Bean, and a high-end Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor. The documents also revealed the $199 price tag for a low-end version,

The manufacturing cost structure and the $199 price tag indicate that the Google device is intended to take on the 7-in. Amazon Kindle Fire tablet, not the 9.7-in. iPad that starts at $499, said Tom Mainelli, an analyst at IDC.

In 2011, the iPad commanded 59% of the global tablet market, while Amazon had 6.9%, IDC said.

With the combination of a high-end Tegra 3 quad-core processor and other cost-efficient features, the Nexus 7 could be a winning piece of hardware, but it has to compete against tablets coming from Asus and Acer with similar price tags and functionality, analysts have noted.

The 7-in. Acer Iconia Tab A110, shown at Computex earlier this month, is expected to sell for less than $200, and will also include a quad-core Tegra 3 processor.

    Like anything else ..
    Is it a "need"? (Nope .. I can live with what I have now to use)
    Do I have savings? (yes, but that is for contingencies)

    Will I make this purchase just because it is a new toy ..
    NOPE ..

    I won't bring it home .. because it doesn't fit in my budget plan

    I'll look at them, but a net book is better to me.

    I'll stick with my desktop and my laptop. All that mini-stuff is little better than toys, and a horrible distraction of actually having a LIFE. I fired one guy who was too busy playing kissy-face with his super-cell to actually get a days work done.

    I purchased the Kindle Fire and returned it. It took forever to load info from the net. The clerk said it was my net provider. LOL. I have four people using my provider and no one has a problem getting on line.

    I'll wait until the product is stress-tested and I read the reviews.

    Apple? Never. I know how to use a computer.

    At this point I am not sure. More information will need to be available for me to make this purchase. Thank you for this post. Looks like they will be announcing this today and I will try to watch that.

    Question, I was looking to get a netbook but what can you do on the Kindle Fire? I was good with technology but apparently I fell asleep somewhere in the last few years.
    I thought kindle was an e-Reader?

    Have you ever made someone on SH cry?? If not, you're about to. UGH
    I have a regular desktop computer at home but after being in the office all day the last thing I want to do is sit in a chair, on the computer at home BUT I still want to be on the internet. So I decided to get a net book so I can sit in my room on the bed and remain online. I also started a tumblr page documenting my life as a 30 something, single mother of an infant. The longer I take making this decision the less I am online reading articles, blogging, bitching on SH and documenting me child's life. It's making me nuts! Right now I'm reading an article hoping it helps.
