It's a low-budget tablet, you can't have everything you like. You do make a point, I hope Google takes this into consideration and make sure that it isn't a nuisance.

$130 is a weird price to put on any product.

Full pricing on creating the Nexus 7:

$99 for TN, $130 for IPS is already established among Chinese Android manufacturers. There are literally dozens of cheap 7" tablets running stock Android already.

That's the difference between "cheap" and Google. It's a official supported device by Google meaning you gain a load of benefits:
1) Direct updates from Google.
2) Binaries, Drivers, etc all released on time
3) High Development support
4) Google Apps.
5) Unlockable bootloader easily (fastboot oem unlock)
6) Fastboot
.. and more.

its going to be similar to the rest of the $99 chinese tablets except this one will have official google support

not too sure if its worth trading my original galaxy tab for one of these though

somehow i prefer TN panels over IPS. its kinda like a privacy filter that the guy next to you wont be able to have a peek at what you have on your screen

No. It will be a Nexus 7 with a different screen and processor to justify profit for its $99 price. I don't think the chinese tablets regularly include Google Apps (Google Play Store) it can be altered to have it, but off the bat it won't. Nexus devices have better dev support as well.

About TN that is true, my only concerns are.. let's say you're on your bed and the angling for the tablet is at a weird angle and its hard to see. Something like that is something I would figure people would have problems with so I hope Google keeps that in mind and make sure its not a significant problem that someone would highly be annoyed of.

This is a really smart move by Google. The only tablets in this price category are super cheap tablets from China that mostly have archaic 800x480 TN display and single-core A8 CPUs. I'm not saying I would recommend it but it's a very interesting tablet and a lower price means more people will be able to buy it. If the thing has decent quality and runs Jelly Bean then it could do very good. The big question mark is the display and responsiveness, these could make or break the device.

Honestly, if you're in the market for a $99 Tablet, I don't think you're REALLY gonna be concerned with hardware (by that I mean the mainstream shoppers). I think its a really smart move by Google. I know I want one. I'm not on a tablet enough to justify $199+, but I think I could spare $99 for one I would use occasionally.

99 dollars for a single core 800 Mhz tablet? I could buy a dual core 1.2 Ghz Snapdragon tablet for 99 dollars a year ago. In fact, I did buy one, and overclocked it to 1.7 Ghz (stable). Is branding really worth 1/4 of the power for the same price?

My original Gtab is a 1GHz A8 processor, an 800MHz A9 would probably perform similarly.

With a CM10 on it at 1.2ghz, It's pretty snappy still. The 512MB ram seems to biggest bottleneck

The HP TouchPad was a great buy at the time of the Fire Sale. The thing is that it was a very limited run and has a unpolished dead OS. Sure you can put Android on it but it's not perfect since it is just a community port. You can't find a TouchPad for that price anymore (the cheapest I found was $170 for a used 16GB). Most people prefer brand new devices that actually work and have support, no offense to TouchPad owners.
