D_Evans45: What the hell does the screen falling off have to do with the OS? Are you Apple fanbiatches really that shallow?

I prefer:

Apple scurries off to court to file patent infringement suit on their tightened screws idea.

kingflower: This device already seems to be plagued with issues (a sampling from around the inter-tubes):

1) Dead Pixels
2) Creaky Screens
3) Glass separating from the case
4) Defective backlighting
5) Blown Speakers

buyer beware. It will be interesting to see how Google deals with customer support issues.

I got mine this week, and it's perfect. None of the problems listed above. Of course the people that do get defective devices are going to be the ones that run to the internet to write a scathing review.
It's the same when the new iPad came out; people saying it was overheating. I also have a new iPad (iPad 3, if you will), and I have yet to have it get overly warm while I'm using it.
If you're really that concerned that you could get a defective unit, then buy it from a brick and mortar store. That way you can return it for an immediate replacement or refund. If you want to be an early adopter, then yes, you may encounter a few issues.

OriginalGamer: Yes, tablets can handle N64, and my particular tablet has more than a "respectable" screen. My TV does 1920x1080p. My iPad does 2048x1536.

Pretty damn cool. I just googled around a bit and it looks like they have PS1 emulators even. I was planning on holding off on a tablet until the holiday season when some good Windows 8 deals might pop up, but lately the Galaxy and that iPad display have been calling my name... Does retina display really make that big a difference? There is a $100 price difference between the 2, and the iPad does lack SD card support IIRC.

Anyone here who owned a Galaxy, and can talk about some pros and cons of the device?

But they're so fun to bait!

Besides, it's not that big of a deal with the Nexus 7, as it's "significantly more repairable than the new iPad." This might even open up an easy way for people to customize their tablets with custom face plates.

Unfortunately, no. The screen is glued to the face plate. That's why it got a 7 out of 10 for repairability.

Hey, they said "significantly more repairable than the new iPad," the thing could have a brick of C4 tied to a tamper sensor and probably still meet that requirement :)

It's a pity though; customizable enclosures would add some personality to the things.

It's just separation anxiety. This is common when re-homing a piece of hardware.
