    "product transition"

    "In fact it warned sales of tablets would dip sequentially to 2.8 million in Q2 due to a product transition."

    Hopefully this is a tacit confirmation of the end of the current Nexus 7 and replacement by something new and even shinier.

      Could it be because they are planning to move to Windows ?

      Probably the padfone phone/tablet combo which cleverly combines an indifferent tablet with a mediocre phone.

      I like my N56V a lot though, especially with a hybrid drive. 1080p screen and serious data crunching.

        Actually PC manufacturers and the PC market in general are in this dire situation precisely because of Microsoft's stranglehold. Microsoft kept a tight grip but they couldn't prevent innovation moving elsewhere, to any device that's not a PC. With its recently launched patent crusade Microsoft aims to correct the situation and bring back in its Redmond stables the rebel device manufacturers. Personally I am not sure I would want them to succeed.

    All I know is I got severely burned buying Asus G75VW's in 2012.

    Be careful folks!
