Nexus 7. A tablet that can take it
I’m still waiting for my Nexus 7..it should arrive Tuesday..In the meantime I have been keeping tabs on what is rapidly becoming the 7″ tablet everyone wants. This time we will look into what kind of abuse the Google tablet can take and compare it to the iPad.
This time the Nexus 7 is subjected to the now famous drop and dunk test conducted by warranty specialists SquareTrade. The SquareTrade folks pitted the Nexus 7 against the current model iPad. They dropped both devices from chest level and table top level to a concrete floor..then both were dunked in a bathtub while playing a video..which device do you think came out on top..check out this video.
Not necessarily real world tests..but certainly close enough to give you a sense for how durable each device would be in your hands..especially if you are a klutz. Watch for my full review of the Nexus 7 next week.
