    Just announced by Google is their 7" tablet

    Tempted, moi? Oh yes, in fact I'm currently fighting an extremely strong urge to pre-order!
  2. So am I. That spec, for the price, is almost too good to withstand!

    I am equally sorely tempted, or should I say WAS until I realised there is no capacity for external expansion (i.e. MicroSD), so whilst the hardware looks attractive you can see what their business model is: Develop a low storage capacity solution [8 or 16Gb will not hold many apps and HD quality videos] and hence drive people to use cloud services that they will have to pay for.So, in my view the hardware is a loss leader to enable greater market penetration and exploit service delivery.Dear god, reading that back I realise I sound like the tech support I'm surrounded by - I need to get out while I can...

    Colleague in the US Embassy has just sent an email after a very favourable hands-on session with the Nexus 7 at a trade show (in Chicago I think). His only quibble was the same as mine - lack of external storage. We both thought ROOT then use some existing solutions to mount a USB device but the drawback to that is a lot of new apps (particularly banking apps) will not run on rooted devices. But that aside, if you're after a small form tablet and don't want to move lots of media/files/apps it does sound like the Nexus could be a real winner.Anyway, my XOOM was updated to ICS last night; its now blisteringly quick, plays all my media and apps, so I think I'll stick with this for now. Can't see any reason to move.
  12. Both the same system with a different interface.
  13. That's a seriously impressive spec for the cost.

    I love my iPad, but the alternatives are certainly catching up.
