who's getting one? I think for $200\250, its definitely worth it. Has a quad core processor and 1gb memory.

the bad is no sd card slot, but what do you expect for $200

Fuck Apple until they cry.

I'm trying to make up my mind between a Nexus 7, which would probably do everything a tablet needs to, and one of the Asus Transformers. I use the crap out of my netbook, but I do wish it was a tablet sometimes. The Transformer seems well suited to fill that gap.

A co-worker here has the Transformer Prime and seems to love it. He got the keyboard attachment and WOW is all I can say about the extended battery time that adds.

I'd be all over it if it was a 10 inch tablet instead of a 7. :(

I don't want a tablet that only has about 2 more viewing inches than my phone, with that much bezel space.

Try a Kindle Fire or a Nook. There's a lot more usable screen there than you would anticipate from the screen measurement number.

10" tables are pretty big.

EDIT: Tablets. A 10" table would be pretty small.

I've had a 10' table before, and liked it. It was just a lower end one, and wasn't honey comb yet. Sold it to find something else.

With tablet having ics now, i'm really wanting to snag another. After using hybrid tablet mode on my phone, i can really see me enjoying a full 10 tablet. Time to shop the neweggs!

I'm actually really stoked about the Nexus 7. I've used a few different tablets and the 7" form factor is just really comfortable to me. I'll probably pre-order pretty soon.

ordered mine july 15th from game stop and told the next shipment is sept. 30 (but guy at store said thats a dummy date), orders shipped out for everything ordered up to july 13th, now google site shows ' coming soon' out of stock......so I'm hoping I pureed mine soon enough to still get it in the next week or so.

I think its awesome. My dad and i have the 16gb one and my wife and brother have the 32gb one. Only down fall is no sd card slot or micro hdmi. Runs android 4.2, may have to update date it once you open it. The nexus 7 dock is suppose to come out this month.
