So another big announcement out of Google I/O was the release of the 7″ Google Nexus tablet. Pretty impressive for a $199 device. Of course, right after release the pundits began comparing it to the iPad. Blah, blah, blah. That misses the mark. This device will not directly compete with the iPad–the market for it is the cheaper tablet market, the Kindle Fire, nook Tablet, and similar devices. The hardware specs for the Google Nexus will allow most users, especially those in schools, to get what they need out of a device. Heavy integration with Google Apps, Play, etc, will also help this become an interesting device for K-12.
