Looking for a Jelly Bean Tablet - Page 4

post #31 of 73
Thread Starter 
Wow guys, loving the passion here. I'm all for rooting and flashing roms to get jelly bean. yes, the Nexus is better supported down the road, but jelly bean was that specific OS I wanted. I'll worry about 4.2 later. 16gb is perfect for me as well. Leaning toward the Nexus 7 or even a transformer if I can snag one off craigslist. Waiting for my Galaxy Tab to sell on Ebay.

Just inform us on your purchase! I'm leaning towards a N7 too but might get a cheaper one since I'm just going to use it as an e-reader and just surfing. :D

You won't have to worry about 4.2 if you were to get the Nexus 7. It's a guarantee and it'll be one of the first devices to get 4.2 smile.gif

Thanks, I'm kind of aggressive when it comes to threads like this because I'm highly knowledgable in terms of Android but I know that I could be wrong at times.

I just don't really like it when people suggest devices that aren't really good long-term. I feel that if I'm going to invest more than $125 in ANYTHING, I want it to last for at least 2.5ish+ years, otherwise I wouldn't even buy it unless it was on a really good deal. I respect that he did suggest it, and I don't mind changing his mind on what he said or to make him feel bad by any means but I at least wish to educate him more in regards to how much a manufacturer/community support means to an Android device. It is heavily important. Manufacturers in Android world drop support for their devices heavily (look at Motorola and their OTA updates, they dont update their phones very often unless its very popular.. even then, they get 1 major update and thats it.. nexus devices? it keeps living, if manufacturer doesnt do it then the community will)

I don't think that the Nexus 7 will become irrelevant anytime soon. Not with a Tegra 3 processor. Many things on the store don't even take advantage of it, it's mainly on TegraZone. It'll be more than suitable for anybody's everyday needs for quite awhile, especially for reading material.

I went out and re-tested a nexus 7 at a different location. It felt smoother and quicker when loading content. I noticed the options within the browser seem very limited compared to older versions of the OS. Now, I'm not a 100% familiar with that version of android so maybe I overlooked where the options were that I was looking for. Can any owners comment on the browser's settings?

Specifically, I was looking for the option to enable desktop websites instead of mobile (mobile sites drive me nuts), and to have the site automatically zoom to a point where the text is readable upon loading the site. I found the option to increase font size, and to enable desktop site loading, but it doesn't seem they work together. Like I said, I could have overlooked something, so any owners that can chime in on this is most welcome.

Love my 32GB TF101, with keyboard dock, IPS screen , 2 USB slots, 1 mSD slot, 1 SD slot, and JB via CM10!! Just sayin!!!! There's always going to be something else better, if not today then tomorrow. If I didn't have my Transformer I would opt for the the N7. If I could afford the larger then that's what I would go for. It looks like the first batch had some build issues but the others have gotten better.

If you want to know why I didn't say TF700, its the cost.

For reading I bought the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, Readers Hub is great for storing all books in (Kobo/Samung hybrid thing), and the Zinio app keeps getting all my money.. I use mainly for watching some videos/reading, internet and a couple of games.

The SD card storage is helpful, for storing multimedia files but ignore the 8GB and go for the 16GB, I filled the 8GB up with apps in a week and there is not an easy way to move apps to the SD card.

If it was for performance/games, Nexus 7..
