2GB really wakes up Android devices, they put these nice processors in them then cripple them with 1GB of RAM. Resolution doesn't bother me as much on a budget device. The difference between using a 7" and a 10" is pretty noticeable.
What do you expect? It's a budget tablet! It's only 150-250$. Of course its not going to have the specs of a 350$+ tablet. There's a sweet spot, spending 350$ on a tablet will be getting more for your money.

We are Effin' 2014.
I'm not demanding the "specs of a $350 tablet"; I'm demanding specs that are at least on par with last year's similarly priced models as the absolute bare minimum. Every year until 2014, tablets and smartphones had at least one or two considerably improved specs over previous year's models at any given price point. This usually also came with last year's models' prices getting slashed.
Most 2014 models on the other hand are WORSE than 2013's leaders around their respective price points: how many tablets below $400 today beat the $225 N7-2013's specs? At a glance, the N7-2013 is practically alone at 1920x1200 under $400. It is also alone with 2GB RAM. The only sub-$400 tablet that beats it by a hair is LG's G-Pad which has a TN instead of IPS screen and costs $100 extra.
The N7-2012 re-defined the $200 tablet and the $225 N7-2013 was a pretty big step up from that.
I was expecting to see a flood of N7-2013 clones around the $200 price point in 2014 but all we got is more 2012-class tablets.
