My first reaction was I want it. Right now, it's at the head of the class for that price range. But 2 other events might happened within the next month and half.
The first one is probably not gonna be better. Next gen Kindle Fire. Rumored to be out by end of July. Specs should be similar to Nexus but my guess is that it's at best similar but more likely falls a little short. If they don't up the display resolution, they shouldn't even release it.
The second is more important but even more of a rumour. iPad mini would have a Retina display and similar specs to the iPad 3. The important question is price. They need to get it to at least $250. Better at $200 but doubtful since Apple actually wants to make money off their tablets. Even then $250 for a Retina display that can match the Nexus in weight as well as everything else. I would probably opt for that, even though I think one of the advantages of the Nexus is that it's not Apple.
