Soon after Google launched Nexus 7 people started to compare it with the iPad and thought it would compete the Apple’s supreme tablet PC. The notion is right in a way but very wrong in the other.
Right in a sense that Nexus 7 does come with a quad-core processor that new iPad, or any previous gen of iPads, doesn’t have. And, the cheap price with Jelly Bean is another key point that shall pave the way for search engine’s first home-made slate.
In my opinion, I am not in the favor of those who deem iPad would be replaced now. Wrong are those who compare a product that has 7 inch screen size, 1280 x 800 display resolution, 16GB max storage capacity, and quad-core processor, with the given 9.7 inch display size of the new iPad, 2048 by 1536 resolution with Retina technology, highly fast A5X chip, and 64GB of internal storage. How come one should try to decide about the winner even though both belong to two different market segments.
The technical specifications and brand image of iPad is much superior to Google’s tablet. 10 incher Galaxy tab, safe to say, is a direct rival of iPad whereas Amazon’s Kindle Fire is one product in the market that rivals Nexus 7.
There is only one point in this whole comparison, who is a better technology provider to the customers with its innovation, between Apple and Google. That is the bottom line.
