    I actually did tell her it's the Nexus, she didn't seem familiar with it so I just said it's the competitor. *sigh* if only more were as enlightened as us... :P

    Should have told her it's what Apple copied.

    I've been asked the same thing. When I tell them it's a Nexus 7, they just respond back with... "oh".
    Goes to show how well Apple market their products.

    If someone asked me if my Nexus 7 was an iPad Mini, I'd say, "No, because the Mini can't do this," and proceed to show off my cool live wallpapers, homescreen widgets, Swype-style keyboard, superior voice search, and superior screen. For 80 bucks less.

    I have been asked a few times. Generally I just laugh. As if I would buy an iPad mini.. Quite insulting actually.

    I've been asked that a lot lately (Sunday Habit - go to the bar and watch football with Nexus 7 to stay up to date on Fantasy Football scores).

    Usually it's just dudes asking, so I just give the curt "nah its a Nexus 7, think Google's version of the iPad" so they'll leave me alone. Now if a decent looking chick were to ask... :-)

    I haven't been asked that, but I work at a tech company and have had to wipe the drool off it a few times. One of the guys has an Ipad mini, but several others have bought the N7 since I got mine.

    I had someone tell me " oh you have the new Kindle!" What I found works better than saying it's the Nexus is telling them " No, this is Google's tablet." Everyone's heard of Google, so it has instant credibility.

    I haven't yet. Someone else here at work has a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and wishes she waited to buy the Nexus.

    One of my co-workers asked me if it was that. My boss on the other hand knew it was a Nexus.

    Thanks for posting this topic!

    I take my N7 to work as well. The other day I was walking out of a meeting and 2 senior VPs came up to me and asked if that was the Ipad mini. I told them that it was a Nexus 7 and one just politely said "oh" and walked away. The other who's a big Apple fan boy asked a few questions about it and I went on the explain why it's so much better than the mini. But again, in one ear and out the other.

    These two are not very tech savvy so I doubt they probably ever heard of a Nexus device or who makes them. The IT guys, who I talk tech with at work, have just been gushing over my N7 and have spent some time checking it out. I guess it goes to show that people who know tech know how awesome the N7 is. Others who don't really give a crap about tech gravitate to Ipads.

    If someone asks something like that, they lose any type of nerd/tech card they thought they had.
    I've only had one person notice I had a N7, and he works at office depot.
    Otherwise, everyone has no idea what it is.
    anyone that is getting the N10 is going to be even more screwed. lolz
