Linus Torvalds Bought Nexus 7 So Why Not You ?

If you are confused between Nexus 7 & New Samsung Galaxy Note Sporting 5.5 Inch Screen or any other smartphone and unable to take decision then you must know:

  • Linus Torvalds pre-ordered Nexus 7.
  • Linus Torvalds is checking delivery date of Nexus 7 again and again.

Now you would be saying that you don’t take your decisions by watching what others are doing. What do you think? You are wiser than Linus Torvalds? You think Linus Torvalds comes in ‘others’ category.

It is good if you don’t watch others and make your decisions but truly this is what you really do but you don’t know. You see adds, you watch movies and you buy stuff.

Many of you purchased Sony Xperia after watching Spiderman but are you really satisfied with Sony Xperia? If you say yes then you are very lucky because others who purchased it realized that the most important feature (seeing what they purchased Sony Xperia) actually don’t works. Hence it is much-much better to watch Linus Torvalds and buy Nexus 7 instead of watching Spiderman and buying Sony Xperia.

Everybody experiences some hardware-software conflict in such smartphones because developers are different. If you are willing to experience this conflict everyday then don’t buy Nexus 7.
