The iFixit team gave the Googles Nexus 7 a 7 out of 10 repairability score. The iPad scored a 2 and the Fire scored an 8. The only real problem they have with the Nexus 7 is that the LCD doesn’t separate from the display glass – making repair more expensive. Another step in the right direction for the Nexus 7.
Pundits of all types have been predicting the end of the iPad’s dominance since it was launched in April of 2010. Fortunately for Apple, and Apple investors, the enemy hasn’t been able to muster a proper offensive yet. Will Amazon’s Kindle Tablet finally end the iPad’s dominance over the burgeoning tablet computing market?
UMPC sales have been lackluster this year – they started shipping in March. The 1st year (well almost) of the UMPC feels a lot like the 1st year of the Tablet PC – again, lackluster. I hold Microsoft responsible for my over-use of the world “lackluster.” Microsoft needs to find and crown a Marketing Czar that can give Jobs a run for his money. They’ve got the hardware, the software, and the people talent – what they lack is the marketing talent. All the hardware innovation in the world isn’t going to do it – even Fujitsu’s folding UMPC will go mostly un-noticed.
