I was going to post it, but seeing how my other posts in here kinda failed, I couldn't be bothered...

I really like the look of this tablet, quad core and only $299 for the 16GB version over here :L.
But mum won't approve the purchase ):

Amazing considering the price!

Never a tablet guy personally. Anybody own a tablet?

Being cheap is the word you are looking for.

How many android tablets are there? How bout iPad?
The average price range for a decent tablet starts at about 349-499.

Example: New iPad 499. Asus Prime 499. Samsung Galaxies from as low what like 379 up to 499 dude.

good luck expecting a miracle from a piece of hardware thats gonna cost 199. Because the Kindle Fire is sooooo amazing.... which is what your essentially getting.

you do know this is a quad core hardware.....

kindle fire was made only for reading and had just the bare esstientals

this is made for gaming, Multimedia, reading etc and has a tegra 3 which is amazing at gaming, it has NFC, everything that the iPad has

there is a different being cheap and affordable.... if apple wanted they could sell their hardware at $299-400 but they don'y because they like to drain every last sent from their customers

While google doesn't care about making money from hardware, their goal is to sell software and make people use their Google Platfrom more, and earn from ads

And companies just mass produce essentially the same thing just like how essentially every android phone and tablet is the same bar screen resolution etc.

Asus,Acer,Samsung, Toshiba, Lenovo, Motorola, etc all make tablets all are priced the same if not maybe 100 dollar cheaper than the iPad yet Apple is expensive?

Samsung - Galaxy Note, Galaxy tab 10.1, 8.9, the galaxy tab 7, Galaxy tab 2
Asus - Transformer, Transformer Prime, TF300 blah
Acer- A100, A200,A500
Motorola - Xoom, Xoom Family Edition?
Apple - iPad.

Google not caring about making money? Ok.

Please, Android is open source so they get about zero from selling those tablets, except the Xoom Razz.

Google can't control who uses their software.

Google doesn't make money of those devices hardware.... they make it off the software... Andriod is open source anyone can use it on any device they want to sell

same with Windows Phone

No, Microsoft makes money from Windows Phone by suing Android OEMs for patent infringement...

Well won't be long before apple tries to get Nexus 7 banned, they already got Galaxy Nexus injunction for having a search function... and seeing the Google Now is a search function and better then Siri, they are gonna ban that too...

Apple owns a patent for unified search from 2000 on all hardware/software.


http://www.theverge.com/2012/6/29/3126934/apple-samsung-judge-bans-galaxy-nexus

The Court is persuaded by the evidence in the record that the '604 unified search functionality drives consumer demand in a way that affects substantial market share. Even accepting Samsung's argument that the intelligent voice-recognition aspect of Siri, as advertised, also contributes to consumer interest in the iPhone 4S, Apple has shown that the '604 Patented feature is core to Siri's functionality and is thus a but-for driver of demand for Siri. Accordingly, the Court finds that Apple has adequately established the requisite causal nexus between Samsung's alleged infringement of the '604 Patent and Apple's risk of suffering irreparable harm.

Well at least apple hasnt tried to ban the almighty Google Goggles looool
Such a fail that was.

Apple stays suing. I mean I don't keep up with it.

But if a patent exist, doesn't the owner have the right to sue?

Google Glasses and fail.... Dude you really are a big clueless Fanboy

Throughout the world respected journinalists have praised Google Glass, there isn't much in it atm but by next year it will be in Alpha/Beta, and has tons of potential

and apple can only sue companies in US because the US has a crap patent system, they give out patents for the dumbest things like softwares

which the EU doesn't, and US patents gives softwares 20 years, which means no one can use that patent unless they pay the patent owner

Apple have even patented the look of a tablet so no one can make one anywhere similar to them without getting sued

It's no coincidence that Samsung's latest products look a lot like the iPhone and iPad, from the shape of the hardware to the user interface and even the packaging. This kind of blatant copying is wrong and, as we've said many times before, we need to protect Apple's intellectual property when companies steal our ideas.

yes they look very similar.....

One of the patents Apple is claiming the GNexus is infringing is slide to unlock which ... Apple didn't invent. They were simply the first to claim a patent on it :facepalm:.

Google Goggles. The mobile app.
http://www.google.com/mobile/goggles/#text

You are thinking of project glass. Which isn't even out yet let alone in the works to be out anytime soon as far as I'm concerned.

Clueless Fanboy? I was paid to go to Cincinnati for a business trip revolving around new technology I was going to be selling. So I know what I'm talking about.

The big demo at the time was "Google Goggles". Which I was referring to and the hype was there and I genuinely excited but it was a huge fail.

I scan a pen, get a airplane.
The concept was genius, the execution was amateur.

It was a flop of an app.

seriously, how does the patent office grant such BS....
and how do they look alike....
they look like cell phones.... I wonder why....

The OS is fantastic and i love ICS on my phone, I have the CM9 mod which is great and definitely like the notification bar on ICS.
If they completely ban the Galaxy Nexus, I will be seriously pissed off. Good thing Google Now is nothing like Siri in that it will be available for all devices that upgrade to 4.1

Google is banned from selling Galaxy Nexus now in US, so we will have to wait until US judge says they can so or if they make changes.

btw In UK the judge just shot down(invalided them) Apple's patents for being too obvious and extension of prior work

the 3 patents were slide-to-unlock, multitouch, and the handling of foreign language text input.

US patent system is broke, while UK and Euro's are shooting down Apple's demands

yeah, they have clearly said that Google Now logs your input and understands your actions. Creepy but hey it makes life easier. You must have been signed into your google account when you search that.

It does not really matter whether it's bs or not.

I'm sure whatever Apple has done against Samsung and Google is not something that any big company would not do if their intellectual properties were being infringed. Those hypocrite fangirls, who support Samsung and Google, wouldn't cry of injustice if the reality were the reverse.
