I recently received my nexus 7 tablet, I must say that I am thoroughly impressed. The tablet itself is extremely fast. Compared to the apple ipad the nexus 7 holds its own. Considering the 200 dollar price tag you are definitely better off doing with the nexus. 7 inch screen is extremely gorgeous and the battery is phenomenal. Google now and google voice typing are super awesome. I typed this entire article with google voice and it was wonderful. If you're considering purchasing a tablet I definitely recommend saving 300 dollars and buying the Nexus 7. 1 drawback to the Nexus is that there are not many tablet orientated apps. However, JellyBean is fairly new, so let's give developers sometime to start making some goodies for us.
