Should I get the new Nexus 7 tablet or an iPad?

Episode 1000 (20:07)

John from San Diego, CA

John wants to transfer his photos and music from his Mac to a tablet. He was thinking of getting an iPad because he already has a Mac desktop, and is concerned that it'd be more complicated to transfer his data to Android. Leo says it isn't really any more difficult to move data to a Nexus 7, and the easiest way to do it with either tablet is through Dropbox.

Leo says that the new Google Nexus 7 has a wonderful color gamut for photography. Also, Google+ will automatically upload and categorize photos taken with the tablet. Music he would buy on the Google Play store would be able to play on anything as well.

Leo expects the next iPad to come out in the fall, with an August/September announcement. Hopefully then, the iPad mini will have a retina screen. But at the moment, Leo says for the price, the Nexus 7 is head and shoulders above the iPad mini.

John also will be in the market for a smartphone, and is wondering whether to go Android with that too. Leo says there will be a new phone, the Moto X, announced August 1st. Leo thinks when that comes out, it will be the best smartphone on the market.
