On the design side, Google has done a very good work with the version 4.0 of Android, this the need for a overlay added by device manufacturers is almost useless. Many times, with android smartphones or tablet, an overlay is added to the system’s device, which users themselves said it’s not bug-free and sometimes useless. Some manufacturers, like HTC, for example, have done a good job whith theirs own overlay, an overlay which receive good crictics from users.
But let’s get back to Torvald impression on the Nexus 7. He said that the 7 inches screen is sure confortable but the ideal format whould be a screen ranging from 7 ou 8.9 inches, while excluding a 9 inches screen which is said to be less user-friendly. Visually speaking, the ideal screen size would be an 8 inches.
On the equipement side, while Google’s tablet is not equiped with a rear camera like the Apple iPad or with an SD card reader as we can see on many androïd devices, thoes lacks are not very impacting Torvald said.
Finally, on the price side, Linus didn’t comment but we already know that a price from 199$ as announced by Google is very welle afordable for many. Because of its good quality, its quad-core cpu, the Nexus 7 is cost-effective as a mid-range affordable device. Victim of its own success among users, the Nexus 7, assemble by Asus for Google, is said to be out-of-stock in many countries since its official launch.
