nexus 7 tablet

It appears that  Google will fail to recover the investment made to create Nexus 7 Tablet.

Technicians website UBM TechInsights set about dismantling one of the tablets Google recently and, taking into account the cost to manufacture these devices, along with the cost of components has been deduced that Google does not have great profits from the sale Nexus 7 .

Taking the possible price of manufacturing along with the cost of which is selling the product, it certainly achieved enough that Nexus 7 represent significant gains for Google.

It is estimated that the revenue that Google could have for each Nexus 7 8GB sold is around $ 15 approximately, whereas the 16GB model would be about $ 55 – both amounts will be reduced, considering that Google will have to pay a percentage of those profits to Asus , the company responsible for developing and manufacturing these tablets.

Replace ‘dumb phone’ iPhone now or wait until Next phone coming?****

iphoneIt’s that time in the life cycle when Apple iPhone is expected to launch a new version of the popular smartphone in a few months, leaving many potential iPhone fans are wondering what to do first to get a new phone.
In this edition of Ask Maggie, I put the options for readers looking to buy a used iPhone or delivered today to replace your basic “dumb”. I also explain to a reader of the difference between a tablet and an electronic reader.

Where can I get a cheap iPhone? Dear Maggie,
maggieI think I’m one of the few people left without a smartphone. My “dumb phone” Verizon Wireless has just died this week, and I need a new as soon as possible. I think I want an iPhone. Unfortunately, I can not wait until the new iPhone comes out this fall (although I think I prefer to have the most recent.) I can use my cell phone for work and for my main phone. But I am not eligible for an upgrade until October.

Do you know where I can get an iPhone at a reasonable price now? Or do you have any other advice for me if I get the new iPhone when it becomes available later this fall?

Thank you,

Dear Cathy,
You are in a difficult situation, because if you could wait until you are eligible for an upgrade from Verizon, it will probably be able to get the latest iPhone to be published in September for about $ 200 . And if Apple did what he did in the past, you would be able to get the iPhone 4S years years for $ 100. (Apple generally updates the previous generation device of $ 100 when the new one is released.)
But you can not wait. You need a new phone now. Since you are not eligible for an upgrade, and it seems that you do not have insurance to replace your device, you must buy a new phone.

Here are your options: You can get a new iPhone at full price or buy a used or refurbished, which will cost less, but not as cheap as buying an iPhone with a carrier subsidy. The other option is to get a new phone cheap now and use its update in October to get the new iPhone when you leave.
If you buy an iPhone or another phone, I think eBay is your best bet for a device at a reasonable price new, used or refurbished. Apple and Verizon will charge $ 650 for a new 16 GB iPhone 4S. The iPhone 4 is greater than $ 550 brand new Apple or Verizon Wireless.

iPhone hold their value pretty well, so the iPhone, even renovated and used are not cheap. A new iPhone obviously cost you more. A new one will be slightly less. And used will be the cheapest bet.

The difference between a phone used and refurbished, is that the refurbished phones are tested by a third party to ensure they work. The device is cleared of all data from the previous owner and settings reset to factory settings.

The devices used were not tested by a third party. And there is a possibility that the device has not been cleaned, which is really more a problem for the former owner for you. But there may be a little hassle for you. In all cases, there is more risk in buying a device that is used, which probably has not been tested as much as one that is refurbished.

If you can not expect an iPhone and take a moment to note that the newest iPhone iPhone 4S. Was presented last fall. And of course, more expensive than previous versions, that is, the iPhone 4, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3G and original iPhone.

On eBay, you can get a new 16 GB iPhone 4S for about $ 510. A is used and a new $ 369 is $ 500. 4 A new iPhone goes for about $ 415 on eBay. You can get one used for about $ 210 and another for $ 330. But remember that this is the device that is now two years.
In general, I do not recommend that people buy older versions of the iPhone. Since you are a Verizon customer, would not be able to get the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3G or original iPhone anyway. These devices only work with AT & T network and unlocked versions can run on T-Mobile. But even if you could buy and use on Verizon, I would not anyway, because they are very old.

But even the iPhone 4 looks a bit long in the tooth these days compared to other smartphones on the market. I do not think it worth for you to pay a few hundred dollars for a device that is already two generations old.

So here’s what I recommend. For a few months until you are eligible for an upgrade, you should just buy another cheap feature phone. (You can even find an old friend who has a Verizon phone that he or she is not that you can use for a couple of months.) When you can upgrade and renew its contract with Verizon, you can switch to a new iPhone. At that time is likely to be able to get the new iPhone, expected to cost $ 200 with a two-year contract, or may be able to get above the $ 100 iPhone 4S . (Obtaining a device which is an older generation is a good way to save money on the initial cost of the device. But as I said before I would buy an iPhone that is two generations or more.)
Verizon sells new and refurbished phones in place. However, as I said before, I often think that eBay offers the best deals. So if you buy a cheap phone, I’d go to eBay first. A new basic flip phone Verizon is $ 30 on eBay. And a new intensity III Samsung quick messaging device with full QWERTY keyboard is going for about $ 60 on eBay. In the Verizon site, the same phone is brand new for $ 280.

Good luck with your phone dilemma! I hope that this advice was helpful.

Confusion Tablet

Dear Maggie,
Perhaps this question has been asked before, but I need help with some understanding. I keep hearing about iPads, tablets and electronic readers. I am interested in purchasing one of these products. But what is the difference between these devices? Is it just the price or hardware?

Thank you, Mags.

Dear Arnold,
The difference is not all about price. The real difference has to do with the software.
