Thanks for the mention of Poweramp. I looked it up and it seems, from the list of features, that it optionally supports music browsing by folders, which is huge for me, since I don't like all music being consolidated into a single mess of a library (especially messy when your tags are incomplete or not quite right).

4G/LTE: $459 (16GB), $559 (32GB), $659 (64GB).

A $130 premium over the N7 for 16GB and a $180 one for 32GB.
Yeah, the iPad Mini's pricing further justifies not lowering the Nexus 7's pricing at all. If the iPad Mini were closer in price, you might see Google undercut themselves, even at a loss, to keep it more attractive, but Apple's pricing is high enough that that isn't necessary.

I've tried a lot of apps on a 10" Android tablet and the only ones that didn't look quite right were a few cheap rush-job apps, like for the local newspaper and airport. Even then, it was mostly just the cover screen that looked bad, because it wasn't designed to be stretched like that. Nearly all of the actual content in the apps scales without stretching.

So, I, too, don't really know what people are talking about when they claim that there are few tablet apps on Android. I think that what they're probably doing is thinking of it like the Apple ecosystem, where apps have had to have separate iPad versions (as I understand it). You don't have many tablet-only Android versions of apps because the regular apps are easily tweaked to support and look good on both phones and tablets.
