The Nexus 7 has a fantastic array of features and blazing performance at an attractive price point. If you're not in need of a rear-facing camera, then I see no reason to purchase anything but a Nexus 7 in this size category at this price point.

this is what I was thinking althought I'm just gonna wait another month untill my birthday or 2 months till christmas. but the galaxy tab is at the same price and has expandable sd slot so I'm interested in that and by the different processors in each snap dragon vs tegra, I'm more interested in this as a gamiong device then computing device but I don't want to be dissapointed by an expensive cheap game system.

also are there games that are able to be played on this that are not bought through the google store? Idk if android is capable of running other pc game that could be loaded on with a flash drive or something I'm guessing no but there is always ways around operating systems

Do not buy a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. I have both it and a Nexus 7 and the Tab 2 is inferior in every possible way. The SD slot does not even begin to compensate for its patheticness. The Nexus 7 is the absolute best 7" Android tablet available at this time.

Gaming: Lots of stuff in the Play store. As well, some very good emulators for SNES and what not if that is your thing. Also, DualShock 3 connected via Bluetooth is the best thing ever.

If you really cant fathom not having an SD card you can use an OTG cable for those times you need more than 16/32 GB. I've never had an issue with running out of space, but I don't load 100s of games, 1000s of songs, and 10s of movies either.

wow thanks you pretty much made up my mind even with the 16 gm I wasn't planning on storing anything other then games on it or a few apps and with 8gb on my android phone I'm not even close to filling it up, my 8gb ipod touch on the other hand is full with just songs!

Also you said the ps3 controller can be coneccted through bluetooth??? I thought I'd have to buy an otg cable for it looks like I'm pretty much set on getting this then!

thanks great help!

How do you connect the PS3 controller using bluetooth? Sorry for not using google tongue.gif
Its just that its easier to use what other people have gotten working too.

Unless you plan on carrying movies and weeks worth of songs with you, 16GB is more than enough for most users. (I still have 11.2GB free on my 16GB N7) Most content can be streamed or located elsewhere (Netflix, Pandora, Dropbox) and apps don't require too much space (Some games are a bit hefty, but nothing unduly egregious).

I do not find myself in any usage scenario with my Nexus 7 where I think "I really wish I had a SD card to do ____". That's just me, of course, and some people have legitimate uses for SD cards. (Dropbox takes care of 95% of my photo/file storage needs tongue.gif)

DualShock 3 w/ Bluetooth needs a $2 app that is totally worth it.

As well you need to be rooted, but that's super easy and you'll want to do that anyway so you can use apps like Titanium Backup and a few others.

Can you explain what it means to be "rooted"? Does rooting void the warrenty ? Is it easy to do without killing the OS?

Also I hear the nexus 7 doesn't support flash? Does that mean no YouTube or pron???

I have an Ipad 3 "No Flash" But Youtube and Redtube both still work ..

Also i think if u want to watch something like Pulocker.com u just install another browser APP i use Puffin.. so there are ways around it..

It is not Android or apples fault.. it is Adobe's fault they will not write the software.. kinda stupid imo.. these tablets are the future...

Nexus 7's were made to be unlocked/rooted. As well they are easily relocked should you ever need to send it in for warranty work or what not.

Rooting is basically giving you root permissions, the same as on Linux. Similar to an administrator account on Windows.

And you can still use Flash on the Nexus 7. Adobe has the installer on their site. You will need to install a browser other than Chrome though. I'm fairly certain Opera supports it.

As well there is a Youtube app which also works within Chrome. It is actually quite nice.
