Interesting read. To go from concept to product is pretty amazing.

They mention that people buy into an ecosystem. It's interesting that within the last 4 months the Android Market became Google Play, more of an ecosystem. So at the same time Asus was working on this tablet, Google was in the process of redesigning their ecosystem.

I still prefer the Android Market. I also can't see myself ever buying a book, downloading music or renting a movie from Google. Amazon is cheaper and Netflix is way more cost effective.

I also thought it was interesting that they're selling them at cost....

I use netflix as well but I plan on buying all my books from Google Play for now on.
The magazine subscriptions might be enticing. Only for Game Informer only, of course. Maybe a Men's Fitness(or other weight lifting mag)
I'll do that with the $25 credit I got for pre-ordering though.
