I would give them a call. they usually answer pretty quick. i had an issue on my last order with my billing address being rejected by my bank even though the bank gave them the money so they were holding onto the shipment until it matched. i didn't get any notice there was anything wrong but they took care of the problem over the phone and it was out that same day.

Also I have the 16gig version with a 16Gig card and I am almost full. Will have to get a 32gig card if I want to put much more on it. I would love to have the nexxus but without a micro sd card slot for expansion I can't do it. So that is why I am waiting to see how the Asus 370T pans out.
Oh my 7.0 plus is getting 4.0 ICS update some time next month (yeppiii)
Ya I probably should not have bought the Tab 2.0. I thought it was going to be better then it really was. Oh well I have gotten rid of it so it is ok now.

I really do wish they had a memory card slot on the Nexus that was the only thing that made me question buying it. I love to watch movies and plan on having at least 2 -3 at a time on my Nexus when I travel. I also have a ton of Apps thanks to they paid app for free everyday from Amazon. I probably will only install the ones I really like but still most of the good apps for android are progressively getting larger. Nothing is wrong with that just give us the space we need or let us add our own space.

If I dislike the Nexus enough I will just sell it too but right now it is looking pretty dang good to me. I really would like the Asus Transformer TF300 but just cannot justify spending almost $400 bucks on a tablet. I personally believe they will continue to be an electronic device and not a full blown computer for quite a few years. Once they hit the stage where they replace my desktop and laptop then I will spend 500+ on one but it better be my main computer not something I just use to kill time. IMHO.

I got it back from the clutches of the forest. Turns out, a nice web of vines caught it 10' from the ground, no damage at all, except my pride.
Glad you got it back safe and sound. :-)

After a new solenoid (not needed), fuel cutoff valve, battery, some deck repair, and cleaning up the ignition switch my lawnmower is back in business. Yay me.

We are getting tons of rain now so it should start growing like crazy.

I just learned that heating up silicone caulk doesn't make it dry faster. It just makes it runny and burns you

Well, after that close call, I was goofing off, and boinked it into the ground from 3'. I had my camera sitting on the ground, hovering over it, and got crossed up. Now I gotta glue the wing tube and fuselage side back together. The 57 survived the day without a scratch though.

Thanks for the info. I like the camera up front so the kids can Skyype, if even supported, and I can't get over the Nexxus not having an SD slot. I agree 8 gigs is plenty but I like that I can pull the pix off my SD card and view photos instead of trying to see them on the camera's screen.

haven't pulled the trigger yet...hoping they run out and my decision will be made for me.

Watching movies is not an issue just get a case that can transform into a stand. I sold my Tab 2.0 to get the Nexus. Even though the Tab just came out in April I feel it is a little slow more me. It has a dual core processor and 1 gig of ram but would bog down when I started to use some use multiple data robbing programs such as photoshop express, Netflix etc. It was not bad but I did notice the lag and I don't want that. It was nice having an external memory card but you can't install apps on them in the OS is Ice Cream Sandwhich and above unless you root. I did not like that at all so I went with the 16 gigs of internal memory for movies and editing photos and I will never use a camera on a tablet I do not need it. Camera Phones and point and shoot camera's are much better then tablet cameras except maybe the new ipad 3. I have not gotten to mess with one of those yet.

I guess really think about what you want to use it for and make your decision on that. Just my advice.

On a better note, I've found that the SFG's I made are very effective, rudder authority is WAY better now.

OK Eddie, I have a room in Manor TX for the 14th and will arrive ARCA about noon or 1pm. How about an update on others attending the HAIL AND FAREWELL fly-in for Bone Doc and his family. Looking forward to seeing and meeting everyone attending. Is Ben going to be there?

See ya Saturday!! Dave
