At the I / O conference, Google presented a number of new products, a new version of Android 4.1, the Google Chrome browser for iPhone and iPad, and of course, the already familiar Nexus 7 tablet. The announcement of the Nexus 7 raised a number of questions from Apple shareholders. Will the novelty, built on a four-core processor, and even at a price of $ 200, be able to compete with the "apple" iPad?
Will this have a negative impact on Apple tablet sales? Analysts are sure not.
According to Brian White of Topeka Capital Markets, the Nexus 7 poses "no threat" to the iPad. The analyst believes that this is “just another Android tablet” that, like its predecessors, will face the same problems.
It is interesting that ordinary users continue to compare the new tablet from Google with the iPad - but the conclusion is the same: the tablets are completely different. The 7-inch Nexus 7 with no built-in cellular module, priced at $ 199, is more likely to compete with the Amazon Kindle Fire.
However, this does not mean that the Nexus 7 is still not a threat to Apple's business. Obviously, the Cupertino-based company believes that there is a separate market for budget 7-inch tablets and Google is entering it with an attractive offer.
It will be very interesting to return to this topic in about six months and analyze the changes in the balance of power. Do you think the Nexus can take a bite of Apple's pie?
