Unlike the Microsoft Surface, Google shows competitive mobile products can be co-developed with OEMs--even when you are providing them free open source software. I'd love to hear any insider details of how the collaboration went.

I'm not prepared to do a side by side comparison with Samsung offerings. Judging only by the introduction at Google I/O, the Nexus 7 looks pretty cool (of course, everything looks cool when it is being introduced at an event like this). I would say the Nexus 7 is going to be some stiff competition for the Kindle Fire. As for the iPad, I think the price points and the features put them in different categories. But if Nexus 7 is as advertised, I have to believe it will give people who were thinking about buying an iPad an excuse to spend a lot less money.

Competition will never stop coming. The price of Nexus 7 is very attractive. It poses highest threat to Amazon Kindle and B&N Nook Color. They are both 7". Interestingly, GPS is not one of the features. I wonder why.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
