Nexus 7 means lonely Playbook
Just got a Nexus 7 Monday. I ordered it from Google directly since I couldn't find it in stores anywhere here.
I've got to say it's made me put my Playbook, which I've had for a year, on the shelf. Faster, nicer looking, lighter, far more functionality thanks to apps. Jelly Bean seems powerful and smooth, although not as intuitive as I'd like. Search function is excellent.
I miss flash, however, for watching some video sites not supported by Android apps (like CBC news). So will still keep the Playbook handy for watching the National and live hockey on the go. I also miss swiping the Playbook screen to wake it up, and the easy and superior way in which Playbook handles multi-tasking. (A lot easier to cycle through simultaneously running apps and shut them down if necessary.) The Playbook also has better and actual stereo speakers. But it doesn't have Netflix or Skype apps. Or a whole lot of other apps. Maybe BB10 will give the Playbook a needed boost, but for now, the Nexus 7 is the better buy.
