"Excellent tablet !"on by dnguy078
-very Fast unlike other versions of android
- 7 inch form factor feels nicer in the hands and makes typing easier.
- the textured backing feels nice
- good battery life
Summary I actually enjoy the nexus 7 over the ipad. Having owned the new iPad, it was always too heavy to hold with one hand and typing was difficult because of the 10 inch form factor. The speed and performance of the nexus 7 is equivalent to the ipad

About a Gazillion More Things
Cons No Expandable Memory
Back Camera (I like scanning QR codes, not a fan of taking pictures with tablets
No HDMI out
Summary I actually preordered and picked up mine from Gamestop. After that, everything is a blurr. I looked up from the tablet after playing with it all day, to find the light of a new day, peaking through my window.
The Nexus 7 is now the standard to which all other 7" devices should be measured. It's smoking fast. The first website I went to loaded so fast, I was in shock! Chrome browser loaded up webpages open on my laptop and synced all of my bookmarks.
My family and I took turns passing it around asking questions in the Google Now app and it was fast and responsive. The first time I used Google now in front of them, their eyes grew as big as saucers.
I can not say enough about this tablet. If you're considering buying a 7" device, run, don't walk to your nearest retailer or online store. This thing makes you smile, every time you touch use it.
Pros Nice screen
Fast compared to dual core tablets
Cons As long as you know its limitations, no real cons. As everyone stated before me, there is no HDMI or micro SD slot. If you don't care, then don't worry.
Battery isn't as great as everyone says
Summary The tablet is great. I don't plan on moving my music or movie collection to this device so I have no need for external storage or HDMI. (I'm a man of several operating systems, iPod for music, movies on WMC on Win7 PC connected to a TV, Android for everything else)
I don't think the battery life is as fantastic as people make it sound. Maybe I have been spoiled by my Razr Maxx smartphone, but I think my Motorola Xoom lasts longer too.
Do not get me wrong. You can go all day, but it just seems to drain faster than I've gotten used to.
Regardless of this minor thing, I would recommend this to everyone. I love the devices that are as close to stock Android OS as possible, and this one fits the bill by being pure stock Android. (If you don't know what I mean, different manufacturers can alter or skin their Android devices to give them their own flair or style). The Xoom also fits this bill, but is now becoming an outdated piece of equipment. The Nexus 7 adds portability, speed, and specs that are not found on any other tablet prices at $200. If you don't need a 10" screen, then I definitely recommend the Nexus 7.
Size is just right
Responsive and vibrant screen
Jelly Bean works great
Update directly from Google no carrier bottleneck
Cons WiFi only is a drag at times with it feeling so good you want to just take it everywhere
Lack of expandable memory
No Flash support
No rear facing camera(not a problem for me but for some it will be)
Summary In conclusion I have had it for two days and I love it. I have taken it to the gym for when I do my cardio and it is awesome. I think that the size really makes it a bit more mobile and comfortable. With the ipad and the ASUS TF Prime the size is good but sometimes it can be a bit too big as you move from room to room or try to read while laying in bed. The tablet is fast. The Screen is vibrant. If you have an android phone pretty much all your apps are ready for you to download. At this price there really isn't much to really complain about. No there is not expandable memory or data connection but ASUS wanted to keep the price down and sometimes you have to give a little to get a lot and I think that you get a lot for the $250.00 that you pay for the 16GB version. If you are in the market for a tablet and don't have $400 plus dollars this is the tablet for you! Actually even if you do have $400 plus dollars I would say give this a look and save some money.
