I use to own a Nexus 7, but I hated it. There were several things I did on my ipad, that the basic android would not let me do. Things that I shouldn't have to download an app for. Before I got the Nexus, I was planning on getting an HD, but got talked out of it. Now that the new one, the HDX is here, good lord it looks extremely tempting. I use Amazon a ton, and would make use of many features, I don't really use the ipad for productivity anyway, and it actually looks like it has better specs in some areas, like the increased RAM and resolution, which I can totally spot as I read and game a ton. How's the web browser and stuff? That would be my primary concern. I have an Iphone so I wouldn't be missing any apps.
