The holiday shopping season is upon us. Guess what the folks at Google decided to gift us; you got it the Nexus 10 tablet. This is another Google foray into hardware design and follows the general trend of software companies believing that they can make better hardware than dedicated OEM’s.
So what’s special here, lots actually
Google called out Apple with the screen here, a dazzling 2560×1600 display is the highlite. For everyone with an older tablet this screen is worth checking out.
It is 8.9 mm thick weighing 603 grams

The tablet has separate homescreen, apps, email, photos and storage for everyone with different profiles
Nexus 10 lets you video chat with up to nine friends at once with Google+ Hangouts.
This one is for Google fanatics with the latest version of Android and comes with Google apps like Gmail, Google Maps, Google+, YouTube and Chrome.

I think it would be fair for readers to ask what the **** does the title mean? I mean what could the similarities be between the recently concluded VP debates and shopping for a seven-inch tablet?
This actually struck me as I was multitasking watching the debate while working on my blog about the various seven-inch tablets and how I could help simplify the choices ? It is significant given that Apple is scheduled to release its own seven-inch game changer. So without further ado let’s go in.
Mostly everyone in the middle agrees the debate was a draw, really two opposing positions, with no common ground. Same with the seven-inch tablets. If you are part of Amazon Prime, the Kindle Fire HD makes most sense for you. If, like me, you like physical Barnes and Noble Stores and reading E-books in them for FREE, then the Nook tablet is for you. Both keep you enclosed in their own ecosystems. If freedom is your cup of tea then the Nexus 7 Android tablet is the one for you. The Google Play store has both the Amazon and Nook store apps and all your content can be accessed from there. The Apple Mini iPad (or whatever name it will have) will be a no brainer really and you can’t go wrong. Hopefully they will have better mapping software and no camera since they got both of it wrong with the iPhone5. Our recommendation remains to try it out inexpensively through us and see what works for you. Then, spend your hard-earned money purchasing one. A cheaper Android tablet is what most people need.
The oft-repeated fear of the future. Both candidates insisted that the future the other person offers is scarier than the future they offer. Sadly the same applies when you go tablet shopping. The platform you choose will lock you in the future to being loyal to that platform even if the pace of innovation is slower in that platform. The Android platform has evolved enormously recently with several newer features, however it requires you being a little more tech savvy. The Kindle, Nook and Apple simplify things in their own ecosystem. We recommend trying out various tablets before settling. Else beware of the future.
Foreign policy disagreements. The best hedge for opposing foreign policy statements, the Apple iPad. If anything might work it is this. The Androids are next. The Nook or Kindle may ignite hostilities as they may not work.
The deficit issue: One believes in more government spending, the other believes in cutting back and letting customers spend. In tablet land, Amazon and Nook tablets are sold pretty much at cost relying on a steady stream of purchases down the line to justify the cost. The Apples of the land want you to spend big bucks upfront, and then eat what you want only.
Hopefully, this tells you how confusing it is now to buy a seven-inch tablet as much as it is for independents to vote in a new president. Unlike politics where there is no recall, in real life you should rent a tablet, make sure it meets all your needs and then only buy it. That is what we at http://www.gizmotakeout.com are all about.
