New as in larger screen? Ditto.
New as in NFC? Ditto.

Really, what's new?
is a phone...or is a race? I think...a phone.

I much prefer my iPad 3 for reading books, simply because the display is far more easy on the eyes due to its much higher resolution and pixel density.
Quote:
there's no difference at all, because the native resolution of the Nexus 7 is almost identical to a high-end Android smartphone -- the Nexus 7 is 1280x800 whereas my Galaxy Nexus or even the latest and greatest Samsung Galaxy S3 is 1280x720.
Quote:
But when I play any number of Android games, particularly 3D ones that tax the GPU, it's not unccomon to find the tablet pause to cache elements into memory and to stutter. Presumably, these games are written to use the NDK, not Dalvik, so we're talking about direct to frame buffer, so the OS can't get in the way.
Quote:
Now, don't get me wrong, I think the Nexus 7 is a great little tablet. I may find myself using it as my travel tablet of choice, since it's a lot less kit to carry with me and far less expensive a device to risk breaking on a trip, particularly if I want to watch movies on Netflix and do some casual after-hours browsing in my hotel room or in the airport lounge.

But as a replacement for my iPad 3 at home? Forget about it.

The iPad is too big and too expensive. I'll consider one if they shrink it to 7", add a card slot, and drop the price to $199~$249.

For the companies involved it is a race. And we are the spectators cheering from the sidelines when they push forward and complaining when they go the wrong way (which is happening quite often lately).

You would not buy it even then.

Probably say no banana holder or something.

Why would you buy a phone with 2 years old technology? Why use pedestrian data speeds when you can have speeds comparable to, or higher than cable? Why pay more for less?

First, I think you are not telling truth to say it is a two year old phone.

Second, even if true, because those things aren't the most important thing to you.

The first LTE phones launched in the States in 2010; the next iPhone will have (presumably) LTE, 2 years later. Android has had turn by turn for 2 or 3 years; iOS will offer this coming with the next iPhone. The Nexus S, released in the Fall of 2010, had NFC, guess what is rumoured for the next iPhone, 2 years later? Now tell me how I am not telling the truth?

I should start my own high tech fruit company. I'd call it:

Curved Yellow Fruit Company, Inc

If I just called it, Banana, I'm sure Apple would sue.

New Android phones that use LTE, NFC, etc are using two year old tech? Someone should tell Samsung...

What should they use instead of these technologies?

The reason for the softer sales is everyone is waiting for release of iPhone 5. Those numbers won't be seen for two more quarters.
Isn't the waiting for the new release something that happens before each new release? Wouldn't the analysts factor this in?
