Google's Nexus 7 Tablet

Google's Nexus 7 Tablet has been getting a lot of hype over the past few days since their announcement of the tablet and google play which would appear to be a combination of hulu or netflix instant, as well as a magazine, book, and music subscription service.  All and all it's looking like google made a good move with the combination release of their new service and this well priced Nexus 7 tablet.

It's price is currently at 200 dollars for the 8gb model and 250 for the 16gig version.  While the storage size difference doesn't seem like much, with the app storage as well as making room for the operating system, it might be prudent to opt for the Nexus 7 16gb model so you can store some of your favorite TV shows or movies while still using the tablet for your daily internet browsing.  You'll have to have a constant wi-fi connection though, because the Nexus 7 doesn't have any planned mobile affinities.

Quick and Dirty
 Pros:Price, this thing is about 300 dollars cheaper than
the main competitor the Ipad and is the same price as Amazon's Kindle fire which has less features

Cons:Small screen, about 3 inches smaller than the Ipad.  Low resolution, which may make it harder to read magazines and books if you're eyesight isn't quite as sharp as it once was

If you pre-order now, you get 25 dollars of credit at the google Play Store I don't really include that as part of the price but if you plan on buying a few paid apps then it might be another incentive to pre-order.

Nexus 7 ship date: 2-3 Weeks or the end of july
