If your point is that in some time before Christmas Asus will come out with a tablet that does more but costs more. You're right (though it will not be called what you think it will--as the Nexus used that name when it went through the FCC) . Every tech company in the world has plans for the future that include better products. Every person who buys technology makes a decision, when they plunk down their dollars, that the device they are buying meets their needs, at the price they are willing to pay at the time.

I can almost guarantee if you buy an Asus Tablet in November, there will be something better on the market in the spring.

I bought the Vox because it seemed like a good deal at the time and I was willing (and able) to pay the price. Who knows, at some point I may buy some future Vox. At some point, I may drop out of the tablet market because my needs truly have not changed since my last purchase, and I am content with what I own. That has happened to me in terms of a desktop and a cell phone already. My Nexus S phone meets all of my needs (and is getting jellybean later in the month). I see no need to replace my desktop unless it breaks and the cost of repairs can't be justified.
