I don't have any issues at all with mine either.

Hey guys I have a question... I got the OTG cable and it's well worth the price especially for expanding the storage. But now I'm wondering is it possible to maybe use a usb modem on it? maybe someone might make a program for it.

Can anyone comment upon the readability and ease of use of e-textbooks, primarily pdfs? I currently have a TouchPad that I use for this but I'm a bit curious about the 7" for factor. I saw the Kindle fire in the store and the screen seemed a bit small, but there seems to be a lot of buzz around the nexus 7.

Guys I'm having some weird screen issue with my N7.

If I leave the brightness to auto detect its not as bad but when I manually adjust the brightness the screen flickers brightness wise. Like if the auto brightness was on but its correcting but in little flashes of darker and brighter. Its not too noticeable but it buggs me when I'm reading here on OCN or watching YouTube. Which is why I got the thing in the first place. (Posting on it right now )

I know that XDA members managed to "hack" a USB modem and a way to make it work on the OG Transformer. I don't believe that such a thing is happening for the N7 though. You could always suggest it on XDA and I'm sure someone capable could make it happen wink.gif

IMHO if you're going for e-book/pdf reading only go for a kindle.
Very light and lasts for a very long time. I had a OG Transformer from last year that I used till March or so~ and while it was good for a variety of things it would strain my eyes alot if I used it to read. My Kindle touch that my dad bought 2 months back however is perfect. No strain, no glare and can be read in the sunlight. It can read pdfs and ebooks (has to be in .mobi format though. You can download free converters to convert pdf/epub or any other format into .mobi format)

I would only go the N7 route if you want multi-media/mobile gaming/general browsing. If you do intend to get the N7 i'd suggest the official kindle app....but keep in mind that you'll need to convert the ebook formats to .mobi again. If you don't want to convert; there are other good ebook readers like Moon Reader and Aldiko that support a wide range of formats as well.

I've had a Kindle 3 (keyboard) for around a year and a half now and it is truly excellent for reading novels but crap for pdfs/e-textbooks. I use my TouchPad a good bit for Web surfing as well, so I'm not worried about not getting use out of it but rather the practicality of the screen size when classes start up again.

Mmm, I set my screen manually to about 65% and notice no flickering.

Nexus 7 BAD screen flicker! most of the guys in this thread at xda just asked for a replacement.

Sure hate that some of you guys have had issues.

This seems interesting.
Now I can let other ppl go on my N7 without worrying about reading my msg and email.
But is still not prefect.
