I’m with you, I wouldn’t normally buy a tablet, for the price they usually go for. And I certainly would have never considered android, that was before I got my hands on a 200 bucks nexus 7, now I am actually considering getting an android phone for my next device, and that is all due to getting the nexus 7 for the price.
As someone who just upgraded to an htc 8x today, I have to say, wp8 is a joke. Save yourself the trouble, and get an android. Seems like WP7 had more functionality than wp8, MS decided to go backwards not forward.
