The nexus 7 made my short list, but was beat out by the TF700T in the end. The killer features of the Infinity for me were: microSD slot in the tablet, availability of a docking station (that I still need to buy - availability limited so far) that gives not only increased battery life, but also has regular USB slots, a keyboard and improved connectivity. The HDMI was also a great feature. The 64Gb model I ended up buying was just icing on the cake. There's a few hundred Mhz difference in CPU speed between them and the Infinity has a better screen (imho, but the difference is almost unnoticeable in real usage). The nexus 10 didn't make the short list for the aforementioned reasons, but the nexus 7 did for the single feature it has that I like the most about it - it's smaller and much more portable. Now that I've had a 10 inch tablet for a while, I see the benefits, especially when web browsing, but when I was shopping, the small size and portability (it would fit in a jacket pocket) was a real consideration for me. Also on the short list was the Ainol Novo 7 Fire, as it had great bang for the buck and a nice feature set. The infinity's main advantages over it are things like the GPS (I've taken my Infinity on hunting trips for the GPS and photo/video capability - it also is a handy place to keep the hunting regulations).
