Thanks, I'm kind of aggressive when it comes to threads like this because I'm highly knowledgable in terms of Android but I know that I could be wrong at times.
I just don't really like it when people suggest devices that aren't really good long-term. I feel that if I'm going to invest more than $125 in ANYTHING, I want it to last for at least 2.5ish+ years, otherwise I wouldn't even buy it unless it was on a really good deal. I respect that he did suggest it, and I don't mind changing his mind on what he said or to make him feel bad by any means but I at least wish to educate him more in regards to how much a manufacturer/community support means to an Android device. It is heavily important. Manufacturers in Android world drop support for their devices heavily (look at Motorola and their OTA updates, they dont update their phones very often unless its very popular.. even then, they get 1 major update and thats it.. nexus devices? it keeps living, if manufacturer doesnt do it then the community will)
I don't think that the Nexus 7 will become irrelevant anytime soon. Not with a Tegra 3 processor. Many things on the store don't even take advantage of it, it's mainly on TegraZone. It'll be more than suitable for anybody's everyday needs for quite awhile, especially for reading material.Edited by zephiK - 10/10/12 at 8:17am
