Why bother comparing iPad 3 to the Nexus. They are 2 different categories of tablets. As of right now, Apple dominates the tablet market, and Google is trying to take over the BUDGET tablet market. Their competition is Amazon, not Apple, at least until the iPad mini is on the market, and then they'll be competing with Apple and Amazon. Eventually I'm sure Microsoft will enter the budget tablet market as well with Windows 8 as they have already announced the Surface to join the tablet war.

Agreed, the iPad's biggest competitors are the Asus Transformer series, and maybe Samsung's larger Tab series, not the Nexus 7.

Poor Chinese. They slave away in sweatshops building the overpriced iPad, but only 0.001% of them will ever actually be able to afford one...

Really? I did not know that.

Because if we do the math according to your data

( 1,347,350,000 x 0.001/100 = 13,473.5 )

You mean to say that only around 13,500 can afford more than $500-700
to buy an iPad in whole china.

You are a genius.
