"Might be good if it worked"1.5 starson by incontinentia
Pros: Size, screen clarity, price.
Cons: Lack of decent camera, paucity of physical connector options.
Summary: My advice, in the for what the worth department, is not to get too swept up in the hype and glowing reviews, and to rather wait a bit. I'm not so sure the quality is keeping pace with the order requests, because Google appears to be getting a lot of returns. My unit had extremely poor RX/TX sensitivity, refusing to connect to a router if it were more than about 15 feet away, which made it virtually unusable. And it's a big hassle to return crap to Google (they still haven't shipped my replacement unit a week later) and charge, at their pleasure, a restocking fee if you decide you want your money back rather than a replacement unit. If you do buy this, I'd recommend getting it in a store locally with a GREAT return policy (think Costco), because you just be doing what I'm doing--which is wishing I'd spent a little more and bought an Ipad.Sorry for the sloppy editing--I remember now, no post-edits on CNET! So please, it's "in the 'for what it's worth department'," and "you might just be doing what I'm doing." Locally (I'm in Hawaii), OfficeMax seems to have lots of these things, so if you want one, you might check them out. My replacement shipped today, about one week following the return so I'll update on how it works in a few days.

Updated on Sep 13, 2012I received the new Nexus 7 today which fired right up and saw 10 or 15 networks--more than my Kindle or laptop--and appears to run very well. The round trip was about 2 weeks but at last it's up and humping and I'm happy. So please bump by rating to a 4/5, the highest I could give anything after going 1 for 2.
