Kindle Fire a run for its money. The Asus Nexus tablet is also said to be the first featuring the new Google Play Store in its full tablet glory.We say affordable, since the price range quoted is between $199 and $249, which is more than reasonable and could give the
HTC allegedly also insisted to own and guide the development of said tablet, while Asus, if you remember, already announced at CES two months ago that it has cracked the code to produce a $250 Tegra 3 7-incher - the Asus MeMO 307T.
Something similar to the MeMO is probably what we are going to see from the Asus Nexus tablet - $249 quad-core slate sounds great and we can't wait for May when the supposed announcement date is.

LOL! That's a smart girl you have there, you must be a proud dad! I know that had to have broken your heart! Well buddy if it's any conciliation to you, I have had a few family members ask me (Since I am the techie in the family) which phone they should get. I qualified them the way they trained us to do at VZW, and most of the time I have to recommend the iPhone 6 out of 10 times.

@Whateverman Yeah. Though it's hard to admit, most people can't actually fully utilize a droid. And since iPhones are relatively easier to use it's the obvious choice for a big chunk of the population. I had experience in selling it too (for a US Telco) and I was also trained to profile people: What are you gonna use the phone mostly for? Is it a must to have data? etc, etc. Though a die-hard droider, I also recommended the iPhone a lot of times, maybe 6 out of 10 times too. A lot of people would go to a store not knowing what to buy and goes home with an iPhone. Most droid seeking fellas have their eyes set on a specific droid even before they go to a store. @gallitoking Good thing you have an open mind and didn't force your daughter into your kind of OS. :p
