Google Nexus 7 vs. iPad 3, unboxing and first impressions -- from iMore!

No, that title isn't a typo! Sure, I'm the editor-in-chief of the #1 site for everything iPhone and iPad, but I've gotten my hands on Google's brand new Nexus 7 tablet, running the all new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, and I aim to put it head-to-head, tablet-e-tablet against Apple's new iPad.

And I'm starting with the traditional unboxing and some quick hardware impressions.

That's why there isn't any shortage of reminder apps for iPhone in the App Store. Checkmark, Due, and TellMeLater are three of our favorites, but are any of them worth ditching Apple's built-in iOS reminders app?

And if so, which one?

Chrome vs. Atomic vs. Mercury: Best alternative browser for iPhone shootout!

The iPhone offers one of the best mobile browsing experiences on any smartphone platform. The built in Safari browser is great, and will only get better with iOS 6 features like iCloud tab-sync, image uploads, and smart banners. Still, it isn't, won't, and will never be for everyone. That why alternatives like Chrome, Atomic, and Mercury are so popular. But which one is the best? And which one is the best for you?

That's what we're here to find out!

Apple iPad or Google Nexus 7: Which one should you get?

Up until now, the question "should you buy an iPad or [blank]?" was almost always answerable with "iPad unless you don't like Apple." The Amazon Kindle Fire tried to change that equation, but Amazon has been coy about sales numbers, and beyond the U.S. border its content is so anemic it's still closer akin to a paperweight than a tablet. Now Google is taking its shot with the ASUS-manufactured, Google Nexus 7.

With that in mind, does the introduction of a Google branded tablet running the latest, greatest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software stack still offer a better alternative answer to iPad?

CamCard vs. WorldCard vs. Business Card Reader: card scanner for iPhone app shootout!

Business card scanner apps for iPhone are a great way to minimize the amount of paper cards you've got to keep track of. Simply scan them into your iPhone via the camera app and they should read the information on the card and automagically fill out the fields and create an iOS Contact for you. CamCard, WorldCard, and Business Card Reader are all well known apps for this, but how accurately and speedily do they do their jobs?

Navigon vs. Scout vs. TomTom: iPhone turn-by-turn navigation app shootout!

Garmin's Navigon, Telenav's Scout, and TomTom are all excellent GPS turn-by-turn navigation apps available for the iPhone, and all handle navigation, especially the bells and whistles surrounding it, differently. Since turn-by-turn GPS navigation apps are among the few that have maintained higher price points in the app store, so it's not financial viable to simply buy them all and figure out which one works best for you. That's where iMore comes in! We've loaded them up, driven around, and figured out who offers the best all-in-one maps and voice navigation package, and more importantly, which one is best for you!

Note: We will be using the U.S. versions of all three apps but all three have many different offerings across several countries.
