    I believe Google's Maps presentation a while back said that you would be able to download maps and use it as a standalone feature. Not sure if its been implemented, or will be when the tablet rolls out.

    From Engadget.. they have pics of the selecting map area and downloading feature.

    Don't get your tightie whities in a bunch if you don't like my humor or get offended when I skip putting smiley faces all over. IF you cannot handle online comments and get bent out of shape, go home.

    Google Maps will cache now. I have only tried for a small area. Not sure what it would do cross country without wireless. But on my Acer tab I use Sygic (Play Store) that is an awesome map/GPS/Nav software that uses TomTom maps. A 7 inch GPS is really great
    Deep Thought #1
    How does Verizon sell phones at their own stores? Any phone they sell, can be found for 50% to 75% less on Amazon, or at Best Buy. Does Verizon operate their stores on a "there is a sucker born every minute" business model?
    Deep Thought #2
    Is Verizon's customer service philosophy: frustrate, aggravate, and exasperate, these annoying interruptions to our day, will eventually go away?

    i won't need too much storage, so that's not a big deal. also don't plan on taking pictures with it.

    Anandtech Nexus 7 review: "I've now confirmed that USB-OTG is supported on the Nexus 7, and works on the current Android 4.1 non-final build that has been sampled. That's encouraging, and I'll test it myself when I get home and to my miniUSB OTG adapter."

    That would be awesome if we could use a flash drive with this.

    If it will support flash drives, then I think we have a winner

    I preordered after thinking it over a bit. Kind of nervous of owning another Nexus device after having a Gnex that barely saw updates.

    They did in fact charge me though but I think it's a temporary hold since I received an email 3 minutes later that said no charge was made

    Well, apparently it does not look good for flash drives(at least stock).

    From the above Anandtech link:

    Update 2: I've asked for further clarification about what USB-OTG functionality is supported. Using a mouse and keyboard will be supported, and I saw Google using an ethernet to USB adapter over USB-OTG as well. Unfortunately I found out that mounting USB storage will not be supported natively. In addition MHL is not supported.
