Well actually no...
The Toshiba AT270 is the best 7" (ok 7.67") range Android tablet available.
It was on sale on Newegg recently for $329 and will be again for xmas.
I have the 16GB version and compared it to a 32GB Nexus 7 that I picked up. The differences are significant (far exceeding the $70 price delta).
Far superior build quality. The AT270 has an aluminum back and is both thinner and lighter than the Nexus 7.
Much superior screen - The AT270 comes with a Super AMOLED+ screen that is the best screen out this gen tablets (I compared it the the Asus TF700T I owned briefly and the AT270 had far better color and contrast). The Nexus 10 may very well be better but then again that's a 10" tablet and as such doesn't directly compare.
Has both HDMI support (via dock) and a Micro SD slot. Given that 32GB Micro SD cards are $15 currently, the sky is the limit for storage on the device.
The AT270 has a rear 5MP camera with flash.
In Engadget's video loop tests, the AT270 lasted 45 minutes longer than the Nexus 7.
The AT270 also has DLNA support (wireless transfer to supported TV's).
There are only a few areas where the Nexus 7 is better.
1. Newer version of Android OS (AT270 is at 4.0)
2. Bluetooth 4.0 vs. 3.0
3. Near Field Communication
And that's it...
My only real beef with the AT270 is that there is a very limited selection of cases available (I got a decent one off Amazon for $20).
