    Default Is the nexus line the only chance for android tablet success?

    Do you think the Nexus line is the only way android tablets will see success?
    (Based on the fact that the nexus 7 and n10 sell well but nothing skinned does.

    Was reading this today, so I don't know if the nexus line is outselling skinned android at all.

    What evidence do you have that shows the Nexus 7 and 10 sell well?

    Hopefully they will, and will make more 7- and 8-inch tablets, but load them high and wide with on-device storage. Then all well need is for Google to embrace off-line storage with their apps.

    The nexus 7 sells well according to a few sites. On the other hand I don't see good things about the nexus 10?
    My guess the nexus 7 does well cause its cheap and decent.

    Here's a site that talks about the Nexus 7, and it definitely seems to have sold well. Or at least I can guess by the # of units shipped. Nothing on the N10 though yet. (Though IMO it's the best tablet out there.)

    the main reason why android is finally selling tablets is because of the "low" cost of powerful hardware and jelly bean. jelly bean is just amazing and all the other oem should ditch their skins or offer them as a launcher

    You seen Note 8 leaks? ; p

    Agree.

    The leaks of the Note 8 makes for a very compelling looking device. Great specs, good screen size, from a marketing standpoint it can continue to build off the current buzz that is the Note 2.

    I think that success with the Android tablets will be a combination of the Nexus and the Note line.

    The best selling android phones and tablets right now have skins. I doubt Samsung is throwing away their skin when it is selling them million of units....
