    Let me start by saying I own an iPad 2 so I don't really have a dog in this fight...

    While reading all the reactions to the Nexus 7, I realized that now the "spec war" has spilled into tablets. People are saying "for the money, these specs blow the Kindle Fire out of the water!" and, in a way, they're right. But tablets, like phones, aren't solely about specs, they're also about UI and ecosystem.

    Its just funny that, for a while, tablets weren't as caught up in the "dual core vs quad core vs 2 gb of ram vs blah blah blah" crap we've seen in smartphones, and now in one product release, Google has pushed that forward.

    I guess if you have crappy software you're going to try to win on hardware.

    It's kind of funny, it seems like this is designed to compete with the Kindle Fire. But what they really should be competing with is the iPad. I often have trouble trying to figure out what Google's strategy is with a lot of their products.

    And if they were actually trying to use this to compete with the iPad, well then it's time to go back to the drawing board.
