re: Google Nexus 7 Vs. iPad Mini: 6 Key Factors
Slightly behind (I just discovered this thread) but I wanted to mention that my mother was given a Nexus 7 for Christmas and has given up on it. She finds it so confusing to do anything in the OS. Dragging a program to the trashcan never works (it just turns red and doesn't go away), downloading apps don't appear on the normal screens but only on the "everything" screen and dragging them to the normal screens is an exercise in frustration - I have watched her try 10 times in a row to drag an icon between screens only to have it not happen. She manages to turn off the wifi all the time (it is quite easy to do) and then has no clue what to do or why everything fails in strange ways. etc.
Android may be awesome for the young tech-savvy crowd but it is woefully inadequate for people who don't instinctively know how to do things. It didn't even come with a guide, no explanation of what the icons on the bottom meant, nothing. I literally had to google to find out how to delete something. I finally got her an ipad and she is a lot happier (she still has trouble but not nearly so much, it is quite a bit more intuitive)
