@TripIt Team That was BS circular statement. Why does anything have to change if FT is simply upgrading an app?

@Johnswilson1 @drewnusser He's not comparing a Chromebook to the iPad, he's giving at an example of a product priced much lower than it with higher productivity return and administrability. The Nexus tablet is closer to the iPad in form and function.

@Johnswilson1 @Makapav At $30 million, if some of that was used to set up prizes, there would be a flood of developers. Besides, there has been a very steady growth of education apps on the Nexus 7. Granted, I only download apps for a 2-year old but there are more apps than I can download at this point and they are all high quality. I don't miss anything from the Apple App Store any more. The $150 I saved on a iPad mini, I can now spend towards books and apps for my kids on the Nexus 7 tablet.

Regarding textbooks, my understanding is that all the textbooks in the iOS environment are easily ported to the Android environment so it's just a matter of critical mass.

Nexus 10 is bigger if that's your argument.

The school district is not actually interested in providing education through a tablet. Just in the buzz that comes from using an Apple product for education. Otherwise they would have gone with the much cheaper and far more administrable Android Nexus tablets at 1/4 th the costs.
