re: Samsung Launches 7-Inch Budget Tablet
Another new tablet worth a look at is the Novo 7 Venus that launched last month that's available for $149 through a site called TabletSprint - this new model runs Android 4.2 and compares closely to the Nexus 7 - featuring a Quad Core processor and HD 1280x800 IPS Screen; while also offering a few features the Nexus doesn't - including a 2-Megapixel rear camera, a MicroSD memory card slot, and HDMI 1080p; plus a 4000 mAh battery and 3G internet connection through its USB port. This tablet is made by AInol Electronics, which is known for winning runner-up for Best Tablet of the Year at CES 2012. TabletSprint also includes $25 in Bonus Apps.

Also launching in early May and available through TabletSprint is the Icoo 7GT - 3G Model for $199, which rivals the Nexus 7 - 3G version that's priced $100 more -- the Icoo 7GT - 3G offers a built-in SIM slot for 3G HSPA+ connection with both Internet access and Voice Calling through any GSM Network such as AT&T and T-Mobile; and also features a Quad Core processor, HD 1280x800 IPS Screen, and built-in GPS; and also offers a Rear 5 Megapixel Camera, MicroSd Memory Card slot, and an HDMI 1080p port with 4K HD output to stream video & movies to a TV.

Overall, both of these new models are pretty impressive for the features they offer and price.

re: Samsung Launches 7-Inch Budget Tablet
Why would any manufacturer build a product such as this and price it as if the Nexus 7 didn't exist? I see no reason to buy this over a Nexus 7.

The screen is not even as good as the year-old Nexus 7, which has 1280x800 (this is 1024x600). Will wait for the updated Nexus 7.
