Japan's largest business daily Nikkei said that the Nexus 7 is taking over mainly because of price

Apple's iPad is notorious for being king of the tablets, but in Japan, this may no longer be the case.

Market research firm BCN conducted a survey in Japan last December to see what the tablet market share was looking like. Out of 2,400 consumer electronics stores in Japan, the iPad had 40.1 percent of the market while Google's Nexus 7 claimed 44.4 percent.

Japan's largest business daily Nikkei said that the Nexus 7 is taking over mainly because of price. The Nexus 7 costs $199 USD while the cheapest iPad -- the iPad mini -- is $329 USD. Both the Nexus 7 and iPad mini are 7-inch tablets.

However, the report did note that some stores in Japan have run out of the iPad mini, which may have affected the results a bit.

The iPad mini features a 7.85-inch display, 1024x768 resolution, Dual-core A5 processor, Lightning connector, 5 MP rear-facing camera, 1.2 MP front-facing camera, 720p HD video, 16GB/32GB/64GB storage options, 10-hour battery life, Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi (802.11n 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) and 4G LTE availability. The iPad mini starts at $329 for the 16GB version, $429 for the 32GB, and $529 for the 64GB.

Google's Nexus 7 is a tablet made by ASUS. It runs the latest version of the Android operating system, 4.1 Jelly Bean, and packs various features like a 7-inch IPS display with a 1280x800 resolution, a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, a 1.2 MP front-facing camera, NFC, Bluetooth, 802.11n wireless, GPS and 16GB/32GB versions. The 16GB version starts at $199 while the 32GB runs $249.99.

What I don't understand about your rather pompous disclaimer of any interest in the business aspect of technology is why you are posting a such comment in a thread about an article about about tech sales figures? Seems a bit dysfunctional to me.

In reality of course your feigned disinterest is just a bit of silly and arch discussion trick to pretend disinterest in any comment you don't like when can't think of anything coherent to say in response.

If you really don't like discussing the business prospects of technology companies fine - piss off to another thread or keep your trap shut and let people who do want to discuss such things have a discussion uninterrupted by your vacuous piffle.

I don't like discussing player transfers in the Premier League but would be an utter nob if I kept turning up in such discussions proclaiming that sports fans don't want to discuss transfers. Do you get the point dude?

Again, I call BS. I never said I have no interest, what I dont like is to see you take everyu discussion and end it with "So, Apple makes more profit". Stop making everything black and white. You cop out with that same BS any time anyone says anything negative about Apple, you sarcasticaly post "Apple is doomed" as if everything everyone says has to be 100% or zero. Seriously, who do you thing your fooling?

You love throwing pieces of cow manure at us, thinking we'd mistake it as magical pixie dust. Yet when we return the favor, you immediately sue our pants off because we're assaulting you.

Who do you think you're fooling? You're literally and figuratively dumber than the guy who outsourced his work to Chinese programmers while hoping nobody would notice.

No one really was talking about the business aspect. It was you that brought it up, as always, because Apple's sales figures are all you've got to attempt to wind other posters up, but it's obviously worn itself out because no one here is interested anymore.

It's nice to bring another perspective to the table, but you constantly repeat yourself.
