Also the only way you can use external storage (USB or Hard Drive) via the OTG port is to root it.
When the AT270 goes on sale again for $299 (and it will from what Toshiba told me), it will again be a far superior tablet for only $40 more...
Acer is releasing the A110 in about 2 weeks that is also going to be a competitor. Mind you we have no details on it's battery life as yet. Slightly lower res screen but same cpu, micro SD, HDMI out and USB OTG support out of the box all for $199.
The Nexus 7 is $260 for a 16GB unit. I'd much rather a $200 8 GB unit and buy 3 - 32 GB Micro SD cards for $18 each.
So, this is an older post I am responding to, but I think this info is still relevant in general. (Not attempting to argue one way or the other what tablet is the "best.")
My Nexus 7 build quality is fine (nothing at all wrong with it, and works as it should). I got the 16GB one when they first came out too, and there where no early adopter penalties for me at all, other than I could have waited and gotten it for less, or waited and gotten the 32GB one for the same price.
The Nexus 7 also came with... off hand, I think $25 in Google Play credit for apps or the like, which I used to get a $15 app that lets me remote into my computer from just about anywhere in the world with WiFi or even just my home WiFi, all for free (with internet connection, of course), and use the touch screen similar to a touch pad to control the "mouse," and it has a pop up keyboard to use to type in Windows and whatnot.
One really cool thing though is that the Nexus 7's storage memory shows up as a drive within Windows. I can play media on my Nexus 7 in Windows, or even just drag an drop files back and forth between drives, so I essentially have limitless storage on my own cloud, with generally a much faster connection. It's fast enough for me to "stream" audio files that are stored on the Nexus 7, play them in say Windows Media Player and "stream" the audio back to the Nexus 7 for me to listen to it. Anything over very low resolution videos (with audio) lags too much really though. If I really wanted to, I could also just move stuff back and forth with a jump drive on my computer, but generally there isn't any need to.
Of course, I also have my computer "with" me on my Nexus 7, well, all but the video cards on it, since it doesn't use them when remoting in. I don't use the tablet for gaming anyway though. It takes me less than two seconds to automatically log into my computer and change the Nexus 7's screen to my PC's desktop.Edited by Wrend - 5/3/13 at 5:56pm
