The Nexus 7 is a new tablet launched by Google with a price tag of about 199 dollars. Compared to Apples 500+ dollar Ipad though, the Nexus has a hard time competing. The Nexus 7 clearly undercuts Apples prices though among other things. In this article I will compare the two devices.

The Nexus 7 is a sleek new tablet made by Google using their Google Play operating system. The Nexus is just one in a huge market for tablets. Google and their partners have been making hundreds of devices to use to compete with Apples devices. These tablets and smartphones, fight in a cut throat market, for market share. The Nexus 7 is Google's new device that it is using to fight Apples Ipad.  With the worlds first 7 inch tablet, Google really made a splash in the market. Only a few months after the release of the Ipad 3, Google releases the Nexus 7 with stunning a stunning HD quality screen and a 1.2 Mega pixel camera. Google spend a lot of time and moeny developing this tablet for the market, and they completly changed the way people will see andorid tablets forever with the Nexus!It runs on Google's Newest operating system called Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). This operating system is bigger,faster and stronger than all of the other previous operating systems.The Nexus also has these features included in the device.

  • Microphone
  • NFC (Android Beam)
  • Accelerometer
  • GPS
  • Magnetometer
  • Gyroscope

The Nexus also has up to 8 hours of battery life. These and more features, allows the Nexus to compete with Apple's Ipad.



The Ipad 3 is the Rolls Royce of the Tablet market. Every single aspect of the device is amazing. From it's Retina display to it's 5-megapixel iSight camera. The Ipad 3 starting at $499, is hard to resist. It is hard to buy the Ipad or any other Apple device without buying into the whole ecosystem and getting the computers and other gadgets. Like the Nexus the Ipad has a Gyroscope and Accelerometer but unlike the Nexus the Ipad has a Ambient light sensor. This is one of the many features that makes the Ipad different. Also the fact that it uses Itunes and Apples flagship operating system make the Ipad one of a kind. The only real issue with the Ipad is it's price point, other than that, I have no complaints. 


I consider the Ipad to be a tablet with far superior design and quality, but the Nexus beats the Ipad on it's price by a lot and the Nexus 7 operating system Google Play is comparable to Apples IOS. The Nexus is also more comfortable to hold than a huge Ipad. Carrying around an Ipad can become inconvenient and the Nexus is very slim and conforms to the shape of your hands. I would recommend buying the Ipad. It is by far the better product, but I would not write off the Nexus so soon. The Nexus can and does make a comfortable tablet for many people, and for people looking for a relatively inexpensive but great tablet to buy, the Nexus fits the bill. This is why I consider the comparison between he two tablets to be a draw because for many people the Ipad works best, but the Nexus does work well for many other people, who are not looking to invest in the Apple ecosystem.  The Ipad may outperform and outsell the Nexus 7, but there will still be millions of people looking to buy a great tablet at a great price.
