So I have the iPad 2 right now. I'm thinking of selling it for a Nexus 7 16GB. But is it worth it? What will make me want to buy the Nexus 7 even more? Thanks guys,

I don't have a Nexus 7, but I do have a PlayBook, and the form factor is perfect. I've played with the Nexus 7 and it improves on a couple areas. It's lighter so even more comfortable to hold, and in portrait mode the keyboard is a lot better (in landscape mode it's just as wide so no significant improvement). The iPad doesn't even compare, it's so big as to be unwieldy. The Nexus 7 fits very well into most jacket pockets, so you can just always have it with you.

What's wrong with your iPad 2 that is making you want to upgrade?

Edit: You could sell your iPad 2 for almost enough for a Nexus 7 I guess.

Do you prefer a 7 over a 10? That may be the biggest difference. A tablet is a tablet.

I strongly disagree. A tablet is not just a tablet.

I think they are. An iOS and Android have very similar apps. Not always exact but close. There are also other differences but just talking about the N7 and Ipad2. I think the screen on the N7 is nice just as nice as the Ipad2. But its lighter and easier to hold and store. I can put it in my cargo pocket. With the cost I feel more likely to use it than the ipad2. it is almost half the price.

You will need to handle the N7 to see if you like it better. either choice is good. I love my tablets and use them everyday. Each has a use and I do not even have internet access all the time. but they are great for studying and reading my manuals or comics or magizines. Sometimes even for movie watching.

So enjoy the choice you make. Let us all know what u decide.

Apps make the tablet what it is. The iPad has better apps. Simple as that really.

What I find curious is that you asked us for our opinion yet it seems you already made your mind the moment you started this thread.

Agreed..
I have a Nexus 7.. It's nice.. but Android selection is very limited in terms of Quality Apps.. iOS simply has more, Better apps.. I have several apps on both the Nexus, my HP TouchPad, and iOS.. the Android ones seem to be the lesser quality.. it's a shame really.


That said, you can't argue with the price..

With the Nexus 7 selling [i]really[/i] well more apps are going to be developed for or ported to Android tablets. Then there are built-in features like Google Now which give Android an edge over iOS.

All in all I'd say at the moment the Nexus 7 is the better option than the iPad 2. What happens in the mid- to long-term remains to be seen - how are Apple going to react to the Nexus 7, which impact are Windows 8 tablets going to have etc.

Google Now hasn't done much to impress me.. it doesn't show the weather for where I actually live, doesn't grab sports info about the sports I actually follow, and the rest is stuff I don't need/want.. all it is, is another way to access Google search..

Long Term Android might start to improve.. but as it stands now, today, if you want the experience go iOS.. if price is the issue, then go Nexus 7.

Funny, same thing people said when the Kindle Fire launched. And yet here we are a year later saying the same thing. I think we should just assess a situation based on what is happening now instead of guessing what will happen in the future.

The thing that is putting me off most about the Nexus 7 is the fact that Android apps are a crapshoot, outside of bundled apps you won't find many that are optimised for a tablet so all you end up getting is 1280x800 upscaled phone UI.

Kindle Fire was a joke unless you just really really like Amazon.

Personally I'd keep the iPad. I love my n7 mind you, but it is what it is...cheap, quality, portable, but the apps...sheesh you can't even get half the existing marketplace from what I've noticed.

Not really. I really want to try the Nexus 7 out but I don't know if it's better than the iPad 2 as I currently have that.

These threads are always pointless without any indication whatsoever of what the OP actually wants from the device(s) in question. As such, asking if the Nexus 7 is better than the iPad 2 isn't going to produce the most helpful answers.

Why is that obvious? You haven't given any specifics about what you need your tablet for. We aren't telepaths just yet.

its an oversized cell phone. iPad uses the screens real estate. android scales. It don't have tablet apps. I would highly suggest against the nexus unless 10" is too big for you. All your iPad purchases are not transferable either. rebuy your software and specific android apps that are needed.Apple will join the 7 inch club this fall.. the iphone 5 and the mini ipad will be virtually the same damn thing.

that's more the fact that it's the first device on JB i'm pretty sure, either way that's [b]QUICKLY[/b] improving
as of today I can hardly find anything that won't install on my nexus 7 which wasn't the case when i got it in the mail a couple weeks ago
