So it just for watching and reading media and using google's apps..?

No. An Android based device may not be as versatile as one running Windows but it can perform a great many of the tasks most user do every day. It may not be a true replacement for a desktop/laptop but it can be very useful.

What about other tablets, I am looking for a little replacement for my PCs because working with a little smaller advice than a PC is more comfortable and you can add,remove,modify your projects easier.

There are tablet computers that run Windows, but a decent one is likely to be pretty expensive. :?

That might be an interesting project -- an AutoHotkey type fork for android something that allows you to control your apps or games like temple run, etc. Shouldn't have to be all fancy or whatever but it could be a fun thing to develop. Gotta look into this...

So, I've read that if bought from Google, the tablet comes with a 12 month limited warranty. I don't think there's going to be an official announcement that all the bugs are worked out. I think I just have to take a chance and exchange it if there's any issues. I don't want to wait any longer. :)

OK then. When you receive your Nexus maybe you could post your impressions/answer some questions... Just a thought. :p

Why not the win8 tablet?

It won't be so expensive and you can probably run ahk on it since it's win OS.

Thought I would post a more recent article on the Nexus 7:

I am a bit surprised that there is not much 'chatter' about Google working to fix their manufacturing issues... :?

It would just get drowned out by the Tab10.1 and Mini pad thing, anyway. Google will quietly beef up the specs a little, clean up the factory a little and re-release it shortly after the other two come up and die down a little. i bet.

Okay, so I finally bought the Nexus 7 tablet yesterday. It came from my local Wal-Mart, which incidently is the only place I could still find them in stock. I've looked it over, trying to find the obvious defects. The screen is not sticking out. It's very flat all around. There is no distortion in the speakers, at any volume level. There is no screen flickering at high brightness. No dead pixels. Touch detection is great.

The only problem I've found, which may not even be a problem, but more of an annoyance, is a bit of lag when scrolling. For example, when in the Chrome web browser, scrolling the page up or down is somewhat "skippy". I'd say it's something software related that will be fixed later on.

I'm going to continue to do more testing, but right now it looks and feels great.

Feel free to ask me any questions.

A generous, and potentially dangerous, offer to make. 8-)

I will try to think up some good ones. Thanks. :D

I´ve been reading reviews about this tablet and i´m very impressed. I always thougth that a 7" tablet is to small for web browsing and for reading magazines or pdf files, so i bought a 10" Tablet. Now, i think i made a big mistake. The 10" tablet is great if you can put it on a stand or holder, but if you try to read it for long times (2 hours or more) it feels so heavy in your hand and my arms get to tired to keep reading. So i´m considering to buy the Nexus 7, because of all the 7" tablets out there it really is the best.
