In Pictures: 7 reasons Google's Nexus 7 beats the iPad

The Google tablet's advantages in flexibility, usability, and form factor might make you ditch your iPad

App selection

This is really a “no-worse-than” point. Nexus 7 has all the apps I could want and more, including the puzzle and word games I favor. All the same productivity apps I wanted on the iPad are available as Android apps, too. The image here shows, from left to right, QuickOffice, Evernote, and Documents to Go, and in the middle is the icon for IBM Symphony Viewer so I can still read LibreOffice ODF documents. Plus, I like the look and feel of the social media apps on the Nexus 7, including Skype, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
