Personally I am defender of manta. Not because i have one, because manta is a different form-factor. Developers want to develop only for one tablet - Nexus 7. But Nexus 7 is not true tablet. 7-inch can't compete with 10-inch display (10-inch is not better, it's different). So, there must be one 4-inch, one 7-inch and one 10-inch device. IMHO. 

And I can't understand one thing: it really so difficult to continue support of those devices?
