Regular OS updates to the whole install base. Affordable hardware. An app firewall of sorts that makes it easier for users to be aware of and in more control of the Android apps on their device.

Also a "for the rest of us" ethos that signals to the preening salescritters in the Apple Stores that they're just modern day diamond sellers.

A company that made a serious concerted effort to do Android correctly could plow Apple under.

It would have to be a service oriented company intent on maintaining a secure and up to date Android distribution for users of it's phones. The app base is there waiting for somebody to roll out the right platform for it to run on.

There is no SD card on a Nexus 7, which disqualifies it to me. I like having the freedom to plug in any 32 gb of storage that I choose. It's then instantly available to me. Micro SD cards are cheap now and a good way to have whole volumes of extra content ready at hand to plug in. I am not interested in storing my data on Google's cloud hardware.

I use my ISP provided modem/router only as a gateway. They have no access or control over my wifi network. They have no need to know which or how many devices I have connected to my network. They are only the gateway. If I used their router they would have a presence on my wifi's subnet.
