New York Times gadget god David Pogue has weighed in on Google’s Nexus 7.His verdict: “… the Nexus tablet is sweet. Its hardware and software smoothness rival Apple’s, and its luxury humiliates the Kindle Fire,” but, “the iPad still makes a far more compelling total package (hardware, software, store).”
His primary gripe with the Nexus 7 is that it’s built for media consumption — reading magazines, watching videos, listening to music — but Google’s store doesn’t have enough content compared to Apple’s iTunes, or Amazon. It also has almost no apps, which is a bummer.
As a tablet, though, it’s darn good.
