First: non-removable batteries.
Second: no microSD.
Third: Patent trolling.
Fourth: 75% profit margin.

I admit an sd card slot would be nice, but it doesn't really matter to most people.

Removable battery? Patents? Profit? not relevant to most buyers.
Umm... have you ever had a phone for more than a month? There's a thing called battery wear.

And profit is relevant to most consumers, it means higher priced, overpriced item

Price is relevant, profit isn't.

When you go for a beer, you care how much it costs, not how much the company made on the beer.

I've had many phones and usually the battery outlasts the screen or anything else.

Well, in my current phone, the screen is WAY outlasting the battery. Battery dies in 3-4 webrowsing.
No.

However, let's say Apple changes its ways and decides 25% profit on their products is fair. That would make an iPhone 5 under $300.

Think about it.

They're still reaping on what they have sowed since the first iphone came out (that Apple logo brand).

Until the brand have been thoroughly milked, they will keep the price that way, and we all know these will still sell like hotcakes tongue.gif

I am not complaining but just correcting your mistake. The Nexus 7 has great hardware for the price. The 7" tablet race seems very hot with the Nexus 7, Nook HD, Fire HD, iPad Mini, and likely some 7" Window 8 RT tablets. Personally I love options and competition. The Nexus 7 will be hard to beat but with varying OSs, specs, and features each will have their pros and cons.

The 32gb Nexus 7 will be officially launched later this month for $249. Google has already sent out the invites for the launch event and numerous leaks have already confirmed it is coming.
