[AC/AT]NVIDIA announces the Tegra Note,NV Designed Android Tablet, Sold by NVIDIA Partners - Page 3

post #21 of 65
Android games aren't like PC games. It is a very different market. The iPad doesn't sell a gabillion tablets because of games. The Nexus doesn't sell tons of tablets because of games. Rarely , if ever, is gaming a primary consideration in a tablet purchase for the "average" joe.

Let's be real here. Android games are a freakin' joke. These games cost like 99 cents to 3 dollars and the experience matches the price. It isn't a compelling gaming experience unless you just want to play some smartphone garbage with simplistic graphics. I understand the Tegra has a few specific games but they really aren't much better. Simplistic, cheap, garbage tablet games. I have bought a few of them for two bucks. Does this make me want to buy a tablet only for games? Hell freakin' no. Android is not a compelling games experience, period.

The final point is that "games" STILL is not a valid excuse for that pathetic screen resolution - the mass market doesn't use " games" as their primary consideration in a tablet purchase as I mentioned earlier. You can buy 150$ full HD android tablets - i'm sure this product will cost more and have a pathetic screen resolution. That doesn't make sense. "Games" isnt' a valid excuse.

Wouldn't be the first time (and won't be the last) that "industry leaders" were dead wrong. biggrin.gif

Android games in general give more gains than nintendo 3Ds/wii's games

Gaming on tablets has its place. My kids all play Minecraft Pocket Edition on their 7 inch Android tablets, as well as other goofy tablet games.

These don't look like terrible tablets, but the Nexus 7 just seems like a better offering across the board.

Only complaint is the ram size, gosh if I only had 1GB on my thinkpad 2 it would be awful.

I bet the screen will look nice, the IPS 1366x768 on my tablet looks amazing in 720p, I bet video playback 1280x800 will be just as good.

If the price is $200 that seems pretty good for what you get, surprised EVGA is making tablets thumb.gif

Get the Nexus 7, the screen is incredible. I got the 32gb model for 269.99 and do not regret it. I am impressed with this though and those are some sweet specs for $199.99.

For me, it loses to the new Nexus 7 in screen, but makes up for it (and this is a lot of making up for it) by having a microSD card slot. I really wish Google would release a Nexus with a microSD slot; I hate having to copy stuff on and off my tablet as I finish with it. Especially since it regularly seems to SNAFU during copy by going to sleep. Then I have to figure out what copied and what didn't, and adapt accordingly.

A microSD slot solves all of that, as I can just copy on to a card in a card reader, then swap it into the tablet. See, Google? Easy. That and it's easy to swap microSD cards out to allow something else to be done!

Given that pretty much 99% of what I do on my tablet is either watch movies or read... 1280x800 is "OK" so if this hits the UK at <£150, I might replace my first gen Nexus 7...
