Just saw these tonight at my Costco.... 7" with sleeve 189.99 and 10" with sleeve 329.99. Not ready to buy yet but I have been leaning towards the Nexus..... is it really that further ahead in technology than the Samsung? I have no idea, just thought they were similar products with few differences/benefits in each and a good choice either way.
each one has its advantages and disadvantages.
If you think expandability (memory capacity wise) is important, galaxy tab is better.
If you want overall smoother experience with higher resolution, nexus 7 is better.
However, I think the build quality of asus is inferior to samsung, even though specs are higher.
