I'd like to spend my free money on items that I feel I can "keep". Movies, for example, are something that you typically rent, and there is Netflix for that anyway, in my opinion. Here are the 3 things I'm most likely going to spend my free $25 Google Money on:
- DRM-Free Music from the Google Play Store.
Google Music stores your music collection in the cloud in very high quality. Google Music also has music available (and very competitively-priced albums) for purchase. Once you buy the song, you own it, and you can do what you like with it.
- Apps That Hold Their Value
What am I even talking about? Well, many apps on Android devices work flawlessly between phone and tablet - none of that resize (2x) nonsense that I've seen on the ipad for quite some time. (I must give the iPad credit on tablet version of Google+ - it's actually very nice).
I also feel that Google has, since the beginning days of "Android Market", made it clear that you've purchased an app. It's not like the Apple Store where you have to think to yourself: "Lets see. . .Did I purchase this $5 app or not? I don't know, let me just click 'purchase' again".
- Books that Read Nice on a 7-Inch Tablet - Yes, This Tablet.
So holding up the ipad to read a book isn't my favorite way to kick back. The Nexus 7 is much smaller than an iPad and is obviously lighter as well. A 1280x800 resolution is packed into this budget-friendly tablet's display, so text shows up crisp and clear. My hand does not get tired from holding the 7" tablet in front of my face for a while.
So have you purchased a Nexus 7, or are you going to wait for the next iPad?
