DIGITAL LIFE-TECH TEST-GOOGLE TABLET

NEW YORK â¿¿ When I first turned on Google's new tablet computer, I immediately thought of it as a media player â¿¿and the latest incarnation of Google's effort to challenge Apple and Amazon by selling digital movies, books and other content. Because of that emphasis, I wasn't thinking of it as an alternative to Apple's general-purpose iPad â¿¿even with a price tag that's $100 cheaper, starting at $399. But after more thought and time with the Nexus, I came to realize it works as a general-purpose tablet, too. By Technology Writer Anick Jesdanun.
