I'm looking to buy one of these but need more uses for one since I already have an iPhone. Reading books and magazines would be a plus, but how are the games on Android, specifically this device?

I dont read books on it but im constantly browsing OCN on this, and I must say its a treat. So easy to use. The games are ok to be honest, games on android are second to Apples app store so thats something for all android devices not just the N7. Some games are just expanded to fit the screen of the N7, others are able to run at higher resolutions; these ones look sweet.

I bought the Motorola Keyboard & Mouse for $28 (refurbed) from 1Saleaday.
Both work fine. Time will tell how well they hold up.

I've read a lot of books on it as well. Nexus ships with a book so it's easy enough to try.
Thumbs Up

Can anyone point me to their recommended quide on "rooting".

I used the Nexus Root Toolkit. So simple and quick.

well the spigen SQ was a bust (well, gave me a sore thumb anyways). I bought 2 of them and both did not go well. It was so hard to line up that I had to reapply several times and could not prevent dust from getting between the screen and the protector. $50 gone. kudos to anyone able to install these without issues but I wouldnt recommend them for the price.

Is the $25 Play Store & Transformers offer only through Google or can you get it from any retailer?

It automatically goes under your Google account. It's not a credit to buy from another retailer.

Think every N7 comes with Transformers pre loaded onto it, its there soon as you turn it on. As for Google Play Store credit, when you go to buy something it deducts it from the £15 credit. AFAIK, these offers are for if you buy from anyone. Kinda a good will gesture from Google for buying a N7 early.

You can buy the tablet from any retailer and still get the $25 credit (for the google play store only), and you'll also get the Transformers movie. (you have to sign up w/ your credit card to receive the free stuff though, I know this because I've used multiple tablets and when I didn't give them the credit card.. No free movie).

Reading on the nexus 7 is perfect imo.

And gaming on it is better than apple to me.. A smaller screen allows for the appearance of better details, and I only game w/ a ps3 controller (you can map the controller for any touch screen easily, IMO). Makes gameplay WAY better than tapping on the screen! Nexus 7 hardware is also more powerful than apple and can easily be overclocked if you need it (trinity kernel). Running an N64 emulator w/ the nexus 7 also adds for some sweet games!! smile.gif

I started out w/ an 8gb (6gb) version from staples.. Then I returned it for a 16gb (13gb) because I really wanted the extra space.

(NOTE: you have to be unlocked and rooted to use the ps3 controller app sixaxis, or to overclock w/ a custom kernel)

I didn't use the root toolkit. If you have adb set up already it's easier to just start adb and type "reboot bootloader", then "fastboot oem unlock"

In other news, my screen is separating. Gonna do the screw tightening thing.
