Aaron unboxes Verizon's newest 4G LTE tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0.  Featuring a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, it sports a 7-inch display, 1 GB RAM, a 4,000 mAh battery, 4G LTE connectivity, and Android 4.0 with Samsung's TouchWiz interface.  It's available at Verizon for $349.99 without a contract, and can be paired with several different tablet data plans.  Is it worth buying, particularly considering the ASUS Nexus 7's $199.99 price tag?

Petar Guetzov Wifi Mororola Xoom for me and it is rocking jelly bean. With jelly bean, I can really claim it outperforms many others. Although just a little chunky, i love it.

Vicente Reyes Nexus 7 is more boards the user. The ipad is a simple tablet, tablets arnt cameras. Lol everyone needs to learn that. II use my phone for taking pics, its more reasonable. And why add another garbage data plan when you can make a hotspot with android devices. Waist of money.
Vicente Reyes
Vicente Reyes Yes, but would not mind getting the nexus 7

Adrian Anguiano Zach I thought you were an iOS fan!!!! What happened bro...
Devin Martinez
Devin Martinez @Eric try down loading some high end game loft games(tegra3 don't support game loft). why can't the iPad 2 be compared to the nexus? ipad2 has rear cam, nexus doesn't, screens don't look much different, nexus is slightly better, iPad2 has more storage capabilities & also has a cellular data model which the nexus will never have, & most important the iPad2 has more dedicated iPad apps made specifically for the 2nd gen iPad…by a lot. so I really really do think they can be compared.
Eric J. Powers
Eric J. Powers Ok a-holes for one you cant compare the nexus 7 to any ipad. 2 the tegra3 has never studdered for me. I would take a nexus 7 over any ipad any day.
Devin Martinez
Devin Martinez use intelligence not hate. best tablet out there, proven is the iPad. nothing even comes close in sales, there must be a reason for that.
Devin Martinez
Devin Martinez its very easy to just write "the iPad3 sucks" but why ? cuz u don't like apple or iOS ? thats not a real reason….
John Cruz
John Cruz Ipad 3 sucks
Eric J. Powers
Eric J. Powers Nexus 7
Devin Martinez
Devin Martinez @Zach the nexus 7 out performs which iPad ? Cuz I got a 3rd gen & even though the nexus is nice for the price, it doesn't out perform my iPad. For god sake man the tegra3 could hardly run game loft games it stutters & crashes. Don't be ignorant its at par with the iPad 2 I'll give u that, but performance, feel, screen resolution. Nothing beats the iPad 3 right now.
