wmoonfox: They're getting sued at every opportunity by Apple, complete with injunctions that prevent products from being sold. It makes no financial sense for them to make quality products that may sit on container ships until they're obsolete.Regarding the device being "ugly", refer to the above. Apple seems to be pursuing a successful case against them over colors, materials, and angles that aren't even covered under design patents. Did you really expect Samsung to keep their existing designs in light of that?Full disclosure: I do not own and have no interest in owning a tablet of any persuasion.
Lord Dimwit: Question: Anyone have a Nexus 7? How is it?
The Banana Thug: Kind of disappointed with the lack of SD card slot,

Vaneshi: The Banana Thug: Kind of disappointed with the lack of SD card slot,I have in on the authority of Fark threads that you were using an Apple product. All Android devices have an SD Card slot./And a full sized VGA port if people are to be believed.
Glockenspiel Hero: Lord Dimwit: Question: Anyone have a Nexus 7? How is it?I got to use one for a week as we passed it around the office. I *really* liked it- it's fast, Jellybean is really nice and the construction is very good. I'm seriously debating buying one for myself. It's not really an iPad competitor (I have an iPad 2 as well) Although it's faster than the iPad and I personally think Jellybean is an enormous leap beyond iOS5, the size makes it difficult to use in the same way. It's more of a super-phone size rather than a mini-laptop. Having use my Dad's Kindle Fire though, it's no comparison- the Nexus just destroys both it and the Nook.The two big issues you might have with it are the lack of SD slot (assuming you watch a lot of movies the 8GB will go quick) and the lack of a back camera.
El Uno Magnifico: Lord Dimwit: Question: Anyone have a Nexus 7? How is it?I love it. Perfect size, fast, very capable. If you use it to store a lot of stuff, yeah, the lack of a SD slot sucks, but I don't use it for that anyway. Plus, it's only $200.
digistil: Lord Dimwit: Question: Anyone have a Nexus 7? How is it?Friend has one. Best iPad alternative, no question.
