but I noticed either a faint flaw in the screen or dust under the glass
3) my third 16gb was the one I posted here on OCN (C70K batch)
I returned it to staples for 2 reasons.
1) Staples had a $15 off $150 coupon.
2) I'm hoping for a C80K
(It's not very hard for me to return them.. Staples is right down the street from me, and since I've had 3 different nexus 7's I can now easily unlock, root, install custom kernels.. and I know all the apps I need to throw back on a new device)
...I am really missing my Nexus 7 right about now though frown.gif
I'd usually be using it to read some game of thrones right now...

Game of Thrones...man...the series is probably the best thing I've seen on cable television since the Sopranos.

Surprisingly no, they are hard to get hot. I was charging it and running it as hard as I could and it didn't even get much more than warm to the touch. My SGS3 gets way hotter and even that isn't too hot.

Definitely. Been doing a lot of reading about the stuff lately as this is really our first Android device (my phone is a crappy one from Cricket-all I need--and my girl's is an iPhone) but, I've seen how hard bricks are virtually impossible. Soft bricks can happen but usually only happen when flashing BETA stuff and can fixed pretty easily. Think I'll probably try an oc this weekend. Nothing too crazy.... just enough to get Dead Space rolling a bit better.

Really looking forward to getting the GlassTopia theme installed. It's looking good, just has a small issue with GMail atm.

Ya know.. seeing how much ppl are selling these for on ebay.. Your best bet is to probably just buy a new one..

But I'm pulling for u! Hopefully you get your hands on one. It's a solid 7" tablet!

Good advice unfortunately, these are £175 used on ebay, they only cost 160 brand new.

Oh I need a question answered by you guys!

I'm headed to Pennsylvania tonight and I want to get the Google Nav working. So I have to download the map area for offline mode from where I start to where I end? So I just download the maps and have my directions and its all good? I tested it out this morning driving into work without downloading maps and it was good for about 10mi till the map got super blurry like a low quality google map...so I just take it I'll download it when I've got wifi and I should be good right?

thanks guys! The map system looks awesome. Way faster/better/bigger than my Garmin.


I'm addicted to the game "X Construct"!!!!

I have done this a few times with mine, just be wifi connected when you start and get the directions downloaded. Once you are on your way some of the areas outside the path you are on may be kinda blurry.

Well I did get my N7 a few days ago. And for a 7 inch it is by far the best one out their. Spec wise and looks.I just can't get used to the 7 inch screen. Its just to darn small for me. If google does release a 10 inch version like alot of experts are saying I will be all over that one...

Can I just download like 100mb of the map area that I need for my trip? All the way from Ohio to PA, where I'm going? I'd rather have great map quality and just download the map area is fine for me. I'll have to give it a try.
