But I've got exactly the same apps on Nexus 7 as on other Android tablets.
On some other tablets I have additional apps, due to the lack of expansion on Nexus 7.
But I haven't got a single app on Nexus 7, which I don't have on at least 5 other Android tablets.
But in general, there seem to be significant differences between the numerous Android tablets re. speed.
Scrolling through the list of installed apps in settings seems to stress performance on some tablets.
On some, you have the icons and the details in an instant.
On some, you can't even scroll fluently.
Nexus 7, at least my unit, is of the latter variety.
