- Outrage is the first step. Action is the second step. Interested in migrating from iOS?

- Dude, obviously it will upset Amazon! Amazon's whole reason for putting out the Kindle Fire was to have a vehicle (running Android) DEVOID of any Google Apps so that the consumer would have access to ALL of AMAZON'S ecosystem! All other Android handset and tablet manufacturers competed against each other, but not directly against Google, as they all used Android for their products. Amazon basically lit the first match by becoming a direct competitor against Google! The Nexus 7 has a decent processor and is stripped (mostly) of anything else Android users have grown used to: HDMI output directly or via MHL, SDcard expansion; on some tablets, micro and full sized USB ports and USB host. You really think Samsung, Acer, and Asus themselves are sweating the Nexus 7? Also, just by the title of the link you posted (which I didn't read), there is no way the Nexus 7 could ever compete with the iPad... BUT, the Nexus 7 WILL DEFINITELY compete with the Kindle Fire!
If this Nexus 7 would have been a 10.1" tablet for the exact same price WITH all of the goodies that appear on other manufacturer's tablets, then, yes, I'd say that the OEM would be sweating bullets. But it isn't, thus, IMO, no one but Amazon is sweating.Jun 30, 2012

- Could you please source your claims regarding Android copying iOS down to the tiniest details? Or are you just full of hot air like most Apple fanboys? As far as I know, and as far as the records show, Android predates iOS. Not only that, but in the modern time, iOS has taken a lot of idea's Android had first. You going to bash iOS for that?Jul 18, 2012
