Google's Pure Android Tablet -- why it is must and why it is THE ONE

Tablets: It is definitely game changer in the computing history. This is because you can't imagine computing devices from $50 (yes, it is fifty dollar tablet) onwards. It exposes information and content consumption and gamify way of many things (including education and information) to many people. iPad to Chinese/Indian low cost tablets is truly needed for varios segment of people.

 Lesson learned from Hp Touchpad and Kindle fire: HP touchpad fire sale made it to second most popular device for sometime. Kindle fire under $200 made it most popular Android tablet ever. If Amazon can crack it open with Amazon prime (Video, Audio and Shopping) why can't Google repeat it?

 Google Services 0) Level 0 (zero) cloud, every service is originated out of Google cloud
 1) Video --- Youtube is premium example of apps in any tablet be it iPad or under $50 tablet, it is owned by Google. Bake Ads with prime time movie streaming which linked into big screen TV (I did not mean Goole TV) but seamless bonding to TV screen would enable Google to try many options here (Visual Ads, Video, Cable etc pops into mind). So invading into living room
 2) Audio --- Google has it's presence am not sure how big, but it is starting. It is not about how big now but how it can be blend into the system so that other similar service provider become unnecessary to end user. Provide nice simple interface and utilize user profile, preference to serve better.
 3) Photo --- yes blend Picasa, it is already homogenized and pasteurized into bigger Google
 4) Voice --- I am seeing voice routed through IP network and one day it is going to native to web and Google already acquired and eaten more and it can be nicely backed
 5) Friend and Social --- Google plus, I think google is grown into Goole + and hence I call it Google. Google is nothing but public information hunting and gathering Ads to serve user. It may be activities or location checkins or driving directions or gmail or what not
 6) Messaging real or email --- no need to go further than Gmail/GTalk or hangout or activities or blending nicely into one
 7) Maps and Navigation --- One of the best one out there and living in Android DNA
 8) Wallet --- NFC and Google Wallet
 9) Sites, Code, Earth etc looks like noise compare to above things Motorola buying is one of the perfect shopping Google made to realize seamless integration of aforementioned services + others and blow away competitor. It seems Google Plus is Google in near future but when Google builds it's first tablet, it is going to be Android that unifies Google's services into THE ONE.


  1. I did not buy and I heard it already sold out. Akahsh and similar kind of devices is going to be game changer. I have been watching that area closely. I fully agree with Steve Jobs' statement about iPad as Post PC device. So for me low cost devices like Akahsh going to be best thing happen to many.
