    Re: Just got a Nexus 7!

    I've been tempted to get one, but the lack of an SD card has been the big negative on a device that doesn't have 3g\4g connectivity (so i would need wifi anywhere i wanted to have media, since the storage capacity is fairly small. )

    Re: Just got a Nexus 7!

    Rather than waste money on a pretend tablet, I bought an iPad and yes, I love it.

    Re: Just got a Nexus 7!

    I'll be the first to say congrats on getting the Nexus 7. I like my Android devices very much. I'm sure the jack *** Apple boys will be all over this thread like any other Android thread. Good products but God forbid someone want something else.

    I dont believe i'm the one coming into a nexus thread and posting irrelevant ****. I think someone's afraid their beautiful brand might be losing its edge.

    And no. I would take a nexus 7 over an ipad, and its not even close for me.

    Buy both. Use them an equal amount, and see which one lasts longer. I've had experience with android and apple devices. My apple devices have lasted longer than my android devices by a wide margin.

    Re: Just got a Nexus 7!

    I picked up the Asus Transformer Infinity and docking station keyboard a few weeks back, but was very tempted by the Nexus 7. My wife already has a Kindle Fire which has a similar 7 inch size, and I decided I wanted the larger 10 inch screen. I've really been happy with the tablet, it's a blast to use.

    Price on Nexus 7 is hard to beat, glad you're enjoying it. Apple does a great job with design of their stuff, but the more open nature of Android appeals to me.

    Re: Just got a Nexus 7!

    When the iPad mini is announced next month, your Nexus will join the rest of the failed devices like the Samsuck, HP, Playbook, etc. I prefer to go with the leader that has 75% market share and a higher quality product.. But I guess that is just me and I can afford the best.

    2.5 times longer? Cause that's what apple is charging for the ipad compared to the nexus 7. If you want a true comparison, try the new galaxy note 10.1. At the same price that blows the ipad out of the water.
