I'm thinking of getting one too. With it being google it will get the updates quicker and problems/bugs fixxed quicker. Also would like to use it as a gps in the car and for $200 that isn't bad plus everything else it does. Only thing I don't like is it only has one camera which points at the user. Kinda wish it had one on the back but I agree most people don't take alot of pics/videos from a tablet.

Do you think the 8GB, $200 version has enough storage?

I kinda figured I would have to spend $250 for the 16GB

then add a case, shipping, and tax then you are around $300

I already put it in the cart and tried a checkout to see the total when they first announced the nexus a few weeks ago. Now I'm thinking I'll wait until I can see and hold one in my hands.

I'm going with the 16 for the occasional movie on the road. Books don't take up to much space though, so 16 should be just fine!

And speaking of Google.....The U.S. government just slapped them with another huge fine for invasion of privacy, for inserting a code in their software that over-rides the privacy settings in Apple's Safari browser, so that they could track people for advertising. Is it any wonder more and more people hate Google...

See.... Google fine

New system ordered from various places (and free shipping!) - thanks for the pointers. Got the Radeon HD 6870, Gigabyte motherboard, Antec case (with blue LEDs ), and Corsair 650W supply. Less rebates (which I'm always dubious about) total was $388 - $25 Amazon gift card. We'll see how it all goes together.

You guys aren't making this any easier. I was hoping to hear strong opinions one way or the other. The 10" screen is what is really driving me. My use cases are Netflix and e-Reader. I do like buying new and if the Nexxus 7 were a 10" screen I would wait.....

Google Nexxus 7
Pros:
Quad Core Tegra 3 processor, new android, new not refurbished, price

Cons:
7" diagonal screen, only 16GB, not expandable, only micro usb no HDMI no SD card no full USB, only front camera no rear camera

I do not see the clear choice...
