Something interesting I’ve spotted, the Google Nexus 7 Tablet was already in planning stages in January 2010. It is likely even before that since that name probably leaked out and some people searched for that name.
It is very interesting to see that the iPad was not even released in Jan 2010 and Google already had a competitive product in the making. The first generation iPad wasn’t released until April 2010.
Competition between companies is so fierce that the other party pretty much knows everything you make before you even release them. The competition between Google and Apple is just insane that I think Steve Job’s life might have been cut shorter because of his anger and frustration with Google.
