    If I understand this correctly, apps purchased can transfer to new phones and new tablet (like the nexus 7). What if an app is available for both android and iOS, would separate purchases be needed - one for SG3 and one for the iPad?

    Yes. Purchases in Apple's App Store do not transfer to Google Play and vise versa.

    iOS and Android separate, you have to buy them separately.

    That's what I expected. :) Wife is deciding between a Nexus 7 and an iPad. This will *nudge* her in the right direction. ;)

    The Nexus 7 is really nice. Seems like the perfect size. It has great specs as well.

    Yeah, we've played with the Nexus 7 and it's great. Typing is her concern. How easy will it be to type on it. The iPad's size helped in this area.

    With the $300 saved you should be able to find a solution. Hell I should sell my ipad and get 2 lol.

    I would suspect if you wrote the developer of the APP they may transfer it to Google Play if you switched phones.

    If screen size is a concern the transformer prime is another great tablet

    Doesn't the Nexus 7 lack of 3G connectivity? It that doesn't concern you, I'd go for it.
