Default N7 vs. M1

Do you think the Matrix One can hold its own with the Nexus 7?

Matrix One 7" tablet reviewAndroidGuys

Hands-On With The Matrix One, A $149 Android Tablet

First look at the $99 Matrix One Android tablet | Ars Technica

Pros for the M1: Price and Connectivity(Hdmi, SD card slot, Full size USB) It is about the same size and weight as the N7 but the it doesn't look as sexy.

Pros for the N7: Processor, Display and Jelly Bean.

I am seriously considering the M1 as a portable media device to take with me on vacation or to the gym. I have a Hp touchpad at home that I love but it does not fit in my pocket.

What do you guys think.

just another crappy chinatab in my opinion. I'd be surprised if that thing lasts more than 3 months. Even if you think that they are an underdog, just like other companies (acer, asus) remember that the a fore mentioned brands initially came out with excellent tabs like the iconia or transformer. First impressions are vital in this market. I actually chuckled at how the VP made the excuse for bad viewing angles.
Where the Nexus 7 clearly bests the Matrix One is in screen quality and performance, and that's where you'll really be able to tell the difference between the $200 tablet and the $100 one: the Nexus comes with a quad-core Tegra 3 processor and an impressive 1280x800 capacitive IPS display, while the Matrix One uses a single-core 1.5GHz Cortex A8 and a 800x480 capacitive display that performs reasonably but has an unimpressive contrast ratio and poor viewing angles.
But, as Pelosi told us while holding the tablet horizontally in front of his face, "you don't look at your tablet like this."
I can think of plenty of awkward viewing angles (Under the covers, or propped up on a pillow)
Nexus 7 pre-order disaster. Never Forget

No Gapps? No sale. As I've heard around a lot of the forums, there are hundreds of these "Chinese" tablets (along with knock off phones). I'd see very little support for these from both the manufacturer and developers.
