Moltz on Those Nexus Tablet Sales Numbers

John Moltz, regarding the fact that his own 10-month-old Nexus 7 suffers from audio interference and a battery that doesn’t hold much of a charge any more:

It shouldn’t be that surprising that a $200 device isn’t built all that well. What should be surprising is analysts and pundits who automatically assume a low price means a winner.

One thing we seldom get are reviews of products after they’ve been used for an extensive period of time, a year or even further out. Nearly all of the product reviews we read (and the ones I usually write, personally — I’m not pointing fingers) are about devices that are only a week or two old.
