Google made a brilliant decision last year to take the bull by the horns and deliver its own brand Android tablet to the masses. Built by ASUS to Google's specifications, the original Nexus 7 awarded a patient (and eager) audience with a stock Android experience wrapped in an affordable package that was high on value and low on feature concessions. It was precisely the kind of tablet the Android camp had been clamoring for, because for whatever reason, most third-party manufacturers were tying to push larger, overpriced slates onto an audience that simply wanted a solid tablet without paying a premium. Up until the Nexus 7 arrived, the only viable alternatives were Amazon's Kindle Fire and Barnes & Noble's Nook Tablet, a fine pair of slates for their intended purposes, but also deeply rooted in each company's own ecosystem. A year later, Google isn't taking a breather and is once again showing the competition how to deliver an Android tablet that caters to consumer demand. The new model Nexus 7 is a worthy successor to the original, boasting an improved design both internally and externally...
Google Nexus 7 (2013) Review: The Best Android Tablet Yet
Picking one up on Friday when i get paid. Already sold my last years nexus 7, cant wait to see that 7" 1200p screen.
Its awesome, I'm typing this from it now !
Can You make calls over GSM with it?
Nice, an EC! I think I might hold off for the third-gen since nothing is holding me back that much on the original-gen, but it IS tempting the heck out of me. The performance-boost is intense.
I have one and it is a nice device. Big step up from last year's model, which I sold on eBay.
My main issue is that the GPS function works poorly. No way to use GPS in the car while tethered (why does my iPad work and my Nexus 7 doesn't!)
No micro SD card slot so I hope USB OTG works well.
For a device that has all the bells and whistles, great looks and a massive appeal to the tech-savvy, why, why, WHY leave out a microSd Card slot?? Someone please give me ONE good reason.
Can you play Facebook games on it like The Price Is Right slots?
Check out Swipe Slate Tab. Loved the new look. Swipe Slate Tablet is Marvelous!. Swipe Team definitely comes up with new Innovative Tabs which are just breath taking . Will definitely go for one
No reason except for maybe cost but that's a pretty weak reason.

After using a number of tablets had pretty much decided that all kind of product was not for me. Had problems getting Apple and Dell touch screens for even my iTunes found detection to be the Devil's spawn, used Android devices with proprietary crippleware installed (Archos and Amazon coupons) and had two Windows 8 tablets whose operating systems lasted less than a week before disabling the hardware completely.
