I dunno, I'm almost inclined to say the Nexus 7 if it's the 4th gen iPod you're considering. That's the weakest iOS device available now and I'm seeing more and more developers recommending at least a 5th gen Touch. Not that I really like the Nexus at all, but it's more of a tablet, and I prefer tablets.

For web searching I'd say it's an easy win for the Nexus, but with games you've got a choice between a superior games library but potentially iffy performance, or a weaker games library and potentially decent performance. Depends what kind of games you like really.

I wouldn't really get a 4th generation Touch at this point. I'm still perfectly fine with mine, but nowadays I mostly just use as a music player. If I was still as into iOS gaming as when I registered here, I'd definitely have upgraded by now.

Between those two I'd say Nexus 7.

If you can afford it though, the iPad beats everything.

I've got both and I'd go with the Nexus 7. I'll play on that before using the Touch for gaming. And the N7 is great for surfing around as well, of course the bigger screen is a plus and it can be customized to your choice of look.
So I'd go with the Nexus 7 although nothing mentioned even compares to my iPad 4.

Ipad mini 2 with retina screen. But you may have to wait a couple of months...

I bought a Nexus 7 recently for the price it's very good but my cell phone outperforms it in a lot of ways most surprising being in battery life, it isn't really that it has bad battery life but I do find it does drain way to much on standby (I might have corrected that with a deep sleep app though but it's too early to tell).

I've also had issues with Google now not even giving me the weather cards probably due to my location in fairness but still annoys me.

For the money the Nexus is a pretty good buy but if you get one stick deep sleep battery saver pro on there and be aware Google will be announcing a new one in a few weeks more than likely.

Default iPod or Nexus 7

Thanks everyone. I only ask because I am not fortunate enough to be able to afford an iPad, and my iPod touch 4 is lagging in web surfing and I find many games on the App Store I can't play due to crashing on an older device! So I think I might switch to Nexus 7 cause I have always wanted a tablet and don't really need my iPod.

Nexus 7. The iPod touch will not be able to play all the games out there soon. But the iPod touch has a good collection of apps you can download... If you don't need to play intensive games then the iPod toich may be better.
