The tablet game is really just getting started. Prices will continue to come down as more tablet variants enter the marketplace. What I'm eager to see is the flexible AMOLED screens... you pull out a tab that unrolls a very large and vibrant screen that will turn the tablet into a magnificent large scale display/viewing device.

How much does the LG Nexus 4 cost in your area?

I have heard that its about $300/$350 in the U.S (sim-free).

Its costing around $425.

Can't understand why so much of price difference?

In Europe it costs more too. Probably has to do with taxes and marketing. Note that the US prices are always without sales tax which comes on top - normally 6 to 8% depending where you live. But if you buy on-line, you very often do not pay the sales tax.

In the USA, cellular phone prices are usually heavily discounted when you buy the phone through your carrier, as you end up committing to a 2 year contract (which is guaranteed income for them) as a new or renewing customer. But for full retail, they're priced not much different than in overseas markets.

Hi there
I posted some while ago about running Android ICS (4.0) as a Virtual Machine on a PC -- easy to do -- and you can use a Mouse for the touch screen parts if you don't have a PC with a touch screen.

Not all the apps from Google Play work but enough do to play with it !!.

Here's a link to running android on Virtual Box --you can run it on VMware as well -- just google around.

Run Android 4 ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich) on a Mac or PC with VirtualBox



It's quite easy

cheers

^ This is WAY cool, Jimbo! I had no idea there was an Android facilitation possible on the PC architecture. This makes such a great way to do some Internet activity with your computer and keep it completely isolated.

I ran Android 2.3 in vBox. But I found it quite boring except for the little games. Now I bought a Nexus 7. That is a lot of fun for little money.

Maybe you will get the N7.7 with Android 5.0 that comes out in a couple of months.
