The Nexus 7 is my favorite tablet right now. Google nailed the price, the interface, and the features, and avoided the mistake of selling it exclusively through a mobile carrier. It's enough to make the Motorola Xoom feel like a distant memory.

Android fans, I recommend following this one up with the Top 5 reasons not to buy an iPad.

Have a complaint about the Nexus 7 that didn't make the list? Let's hear it. Leave a comment.
