Actually, the Nexus 7 is "Made in China." It's the Nexus Q that is made in the USA.

Zeman, you are such an Apple fanboy. Why don't you write some news instead of constantly spinning everything into an Apple commercial?

Firstly, there is no iPad mini. And whether there will be one this fall, or ever, is only speculation. I don't think I've ever seen a review of an iPad that mentioned any other tablet in it but the iPad.It would be refreshing to see a review of an Android tablet that does the same.

And the really cool thing about the Google Nexus is that it is made in USA. This says alot about US competitiveness as well!

re: Nexus 7 Arrival Incites 7-Inch Tablet Brawl
You talk about the iPad Mini's 7.85-inch display being "slightly bigger." While the screen diagonal is less than an inch more, the iPad Mini will (presumably) use a 4:3 aspect ratio (like an old TV or CRT), just as the iPad does. This will make the tablet noticeably larger than the Nexux 7 which uses a 16:9 aspect ratio (like a widescreen TV). The other issue may be weight. The Nexus 7 is very light (even compared to other 7" tablets).
