Apple may have held dominance in the tablet market for the last two years but it appears to have some genuine competition on its hands, as V3 readers' interest in Google's Nexus 7 tablet underlines the clamour for the device.
Our head to head against the iPad showed that while it may not quite have the specs to match Apple the price difference could certainly sway many, while the 7in form factor makes it a highly convenient device to use on-the-go.
Furthermore, as it comes loaded with Android Jelly Bean 4.1, readers have also been keen to see what this upgrade offers, with our review noting its excellent Google Now service and the Currents tool for streamlining daily news feed delivery.
However, security conscious users may have been perturbed to read our story from the Black Hat hacking conference in Las Vegas, where renowned researcher Charlie Miller demonstrated the ease with which NFC devices can be infiltrated.
