    The 32GB Nexus 7 running $GOOG Android is $250, iPad mini $435. How big a threat do you think that is for $AAPL?

    • Vegas Ben: Not much of a threat at all. Apple lovers will pay more for the Apple product, even if it costs a lot more.

    • David Jackson: Did you try any of the Seeking Alpha apps on the Nexus 7? They were designed for phones, but work even better on the Nexus 7.

    • Vegas Ben: I do use the seeking alpha app on my Motorola Droid 3. It is slow, not very intuitive, and crashes a lot, but the screen is too small
