Magazines look good. You wanna get close up for reading just hit text mode, then exit or pinch-zoom to look at the pictures. Haven't read a book in like 10 years so, yeah, don't know how that works out on the Nexus 7--haven't even read the free one they give you. If you are looking for a 7 inch tab, there's really no better deal than a Nexus 7 right now.

Games look great. The Apple app store is way ahead as far as content goes but, Android is slowly catching up. At 1280 x 800 the graphics on some games are pretty damn good, tbo.

He only made one mistake, you only void your warranty if you grossly/negligently cause damage to your device... There's even a video about this on xda here it's a law that protects consumers very specifically in this regard. I'm just glad so many good unlocking/rooting videos are out there for this device...man, they made my life so much easier.

The $25 is tied to each device, everyone gets it. I think you are even supposed to get $10 for the Google Wallet when you sign up but, I didn't see it in my account.... Did any of you get ten bucks when/if you signed for for Google Wallet?

From what I understand it's not a big problem at all. I'm sure Asus has even fixed it in the newer batches.

Jesus.
After you set it up, you have to press the Google Prepay card.

Being a dumbass, I pressed it yesterday even thought I know I am getting a RMA.
Hope it doesnt tie to the device as everyone is saying and I will get my ten dollars when I get my new one.

btw, for those interested in my RMA, it took them an day and a half to reply me with the RMA info.
Now I am just waiting for them to ship the new one to me.
And once I get it I will ship the old one back.

Anyone received theirs recently? Where did you buy it from? I heard that the C80K batch has a higher quality check and should be almost perfect. The batch number is under CSSN.

I got C70K batch lol, any word on that?

Yeah.. I have a C70K 16gb.. I'm just gonna return it. I think I'm switching back to the 8gb version anyways. 16gb version is great, but I just can't get over the fact that ~7 more gb of ram is $50.. And w/ staples $15 dollars off $150, It'll make the 8gb version $197 after tax yessir.gif

And.. the tablet has been set back to factory settings! It's goin back! thumb.gif

Update: I just re-bought a 16gb @ staples for $235 + tax w/ code: 99618. I'm hoping it'll be from the C80 batch.

Man, I definitely need to try that 0.o I'm slowly building up my courage to start flashing Roms/kernels and whatnot. Still reading and downloading videos so I don't get stuck if it doesn't go 100% the first time, though.
Does it make the tab much warmer when gaming?

Yeah, I don't think "tied" was the right word there. When you activate a device (Nexus 7) and go into your Google Play account, it sends the activation from that device to GP and gives you 25 bucks. Or something like that. Your 25/10 will still be there. thumb.gif

Hah, thanks. Now I see. I thought that was for like those pre-paid cards you buy from the store or something. doh.gif

Glad you got the RMA all squared. Here's to good luck cheers.gif
