Post  mrblur on Fri Jun 29, 2012 8:09 am

I think I have become a fanboy. can't wait to get it. Mad Thats all need a seven inch, baby (wait that didn't sound right).

The only thing missing is a 3g or 4g radio, maybe their next go around at the nexus 7. This will be my first tablet in my aresanel of devices What a Face ..

We have a Kindle Fire, that I like better than my HP Touchpad, but I picked up recently an Archos 101 G9 (blah blah blah) that I like better than the other two. It's got a 10.1 " screen runs ICS, and has a 250gb HDD!!!

Pre-ordered the 16gb, with no accessories. The only thing missing is 3g or 4g and camera 8mp(or higher), if they would release something like this and keep it 7inch. I will toss my smartphone(nexus s) and get a flip phone.

This tablet is wi-fi only, right? Can you bridge to a phone for 3G or 4G connection for those times when you are away from a hotspot?

Most any Android cell phone will let you set it up as a hot spot, but the bastards are getting greedy and starting to charge for it. I have had free tethering/hot spot for the years that I have had an internet plan with T-Mobile, but they just stealthily changed it and now require paying extra. Just another way to squeeze money out of people, the dirty scum.

Foxfi does not work with a G2. Tried it.

I spent a few hours on the phone with T-Mobile and got it sorted out, but it was still a pain.

I just realized I have a problem with blur's photograph. What's up with this sunny, 105-degree bullshit?

>>Looks outside at snowstorm and freezing temperatures.

Some of the newer tablets have LTE (or 4G) support, but the bastards are charging plenty for that feature--both for the hardware and the data plan.

yes unbearable it was like that for about a month here, had to keep the A/C running 24 hrs for about 3 weeks. Neighbors do not have A/C so they would go to the mall in the evening to just cool off. ha.

Back to the nexus7. It was pre-ordered as soon as it was announced june or july I forget. Actually that' my 3rd Nexus 7 as the quality built on it is sub par(is that even a word). First nexus7 had a bulge in the middle screen and it also had a washed out look. So I actually requested a refund, but since google take up to 7-10 days to process a refund I had a chance to play with it before it was returned. Once the refund was processed I decided to keep it, but wanted an exchange. That was actually quicker than a refund so I had new nexus 7 in a matter of days while the first one went back. To my surprise the second nexus 7 had a screen lift that was very noticeable so again I called Google and asked for an exchange. Now the thrid nexus7 was a lot better and the colors were more vibrant when watching porn videos, oh and playing games. After about a week owning the third nexus 7 it started to get the screen lift, but I decided to keep it since I actually fell in love with the device..... alien

Review for the device I'm not much for a review more more of a consumer. I'm thinking of getting the new nexus7 32gb with 3g, but I'm first going to wait for the reviews and see if the new nexus 7 are plagued with the dreaded screen lift. hmmm out need to go back to work....ehhhh

Just received 4.2 update and it's great.

Finally gets user account, so now my son can log into his profile. The only thing it doesn't have is admin rights on the original acct to limit changes on tablet setting.

The only concern with the update seems the auto screen brightness is an little sensitive.
