Website going down the drain...

I just dropped you email lists which guide me to these ariticle due to the horrible practice of breaking articles up into 29 pages.  That is ridiculous. Causing you audience issues just to drive up page counts is a great way to lose readers.  It also appears that you have made the print page 29 pages.  Way to go, make your readers more unhappy just to make your site seem more popular than it is.

Small tablets (7") will all very soon have LTE phone connectivity -- hence integrated (BB+AP) processors. It would be great if OEM would negotiate affordable data plan so that a user after opening the mailing box can just activate (if he/she wants) phone connectivity. I hope the next iPad Mini, Nexus 7, Kindle Fire will all do that.

Rick, you may cease your amazement now... not sure about the quality of Google's tablet but my Lenovo Ideapad K1 died just a month after its 1-year warranty expired! It is true the tablets these days cram a lot of computing power but their reliability leaves a lot to be desired. In comparison, my HP 17inch laptop that is nearly 10 year old still works like a champ! MP Divakar

iPad and iPhone battery can maintain its quality after years I using. But i I think it is better idea to have replaceable battery.

I suspect that somebody got some bad info about the Elan parts. The entire internet would be in an uproar if Google released this new "Kindle Fire killer" but crippled it with a resistive touchscreen. The Nexus 7 indeed has a capacitive touchscreen. A big hint is the fact that the LCD is covered with glass. Those two Elan parts don't show up on Elan's website and the only Google search hits for those part numbers refer to articles about the Nexus 7 teardown. But a quick glance at Elan's website reveals that they do make capacitive touchscreen controllers -- and they don't appear to offer any resistive touchscreen controllers.

IT'S ABOUT TIME WE SEE A REPLACEABLE BATTERY! UNLIKE THE IPAD YOUR STUCK WITH A ONE TIME USE INTEGRATED BATTERY PACK. ONCE THE BATTERY DECADES AND DOESN'T HOLD A CHARGE ANYMORE YOU WOULD EITHER HAVE THROUGH THE IPAD A WAY OR SHIP IT TO APPLE FOR A VERY EXPENSIVE REPAIR. WHY WASTE MONEY ON AN OVERPRICED IPAD THAT ONLY HAS A ONE TIME USE BATTERY, THAT IS LAME!

oh BTW allan how did you arrive at the $184 price that 1000pvs again perhaps ?, when http://allthingsd.com/20120711/googles-nexus-7-costs-152-to-make-ihs-isuppli-teardown-finds/ find such a diference in BOM in isuppli's "$152 to Make" price. there's a very large price difference there OC lower is better if your not compromising the components cost and so getting lower data throughput.
