NOVICE TABLET VENDOR Google's Nexus 7 tablet might not have got off to a great start, but it already looks set to become the best selling Android tablet yet.

Google Nexus 7We ran a poll asking readers whether they plan to buy the budget priced Asus built device. "Yes" scored a landslide victory, with 90 per cent of respondents saying that they're planning to buy a Nexus 7 tablet.

Interestingly, 71 per cent of readers said they will buy the tablet because of its Google Play integration, which sees apps, books and films placed at the center of the tablet's functionality.

A further 19 per cent said they will buy the tablet simply because of its cheap and cheerful price, which sees the 8GB and 16GB models selling for £159 and £199, respectively.

Just 10 per cent of INQUIRER readers said they don't plan to buy the device, with six per cent answering that they'll stick with their Ipad and two per cent saying that they are holding out for the Amazon Kindle Fire. This matches up nicely with Currys' prediction that the Nexus 7 will outsell the Kindle Fire over the holidays.

A further two per cent said they will hold out for a Google Chrome tablet instead. µ
