Of the five reasons I've given above, price is the one I've isolated as the main argument for the Nexus 7's success. However, and I want to make this point crystal clear: slapping a low price on just any old thing and expecting consumers to gobble it up will only lead to disappointment. And there are plenty of cheap but terrible tablets that can attest to this. Consumers are becoming more savvy by the day, and there needs to be a minimum level of quality met by each device. The Nexus 7 raised the quality bar, and a year later few tablets have been able to reach it. And next week we could see the bar raised to even more-dizzying heights.
Rumors point to Google I/O (May 15 nutcracker ballet by andrea lauren iphone case through 17) as the stage where the next version of the Nexus 7 will debut, While no one outside of Google knows or is officially allowed to say anything about its next 7-inch tablet, it's highly likely the company won't deviate too far from its previous success formula, That is, release a powerful, comfortable tablet with a feature-rich easy-to-use OS and a robust app ecosystem for a relatively low price, If Google can do that -- and by "do that" I mean "do that" by 2013 standards -- we should all be in for something worthwhile..

The Nexus 7 is the most popular pure Android tablet available. How do I know? Well, data compiled by Handset Detective and a bit of clever maths by analyst Ben Evans are certainly strong indicators. But also, everyone and their mother seems to have one. Especially in the U.S., but other markets have also been strong supporters. I'd even say that the Nexus 7 deserves a decidedly corpulent chunk of credit for giving the overall Android tablet market a boost. Yes, Amazon found success with the first version of the Kindle Fire, but the lack of expected tablet features (no camera, no volume button) and an intentionally closed-off OS left those looking to do something more than watch movies, TV shows, or read books unsatisfied.
