Google Gives More Details On Nexus 7 Orders
On a separate note, is http://www.nexustablets.net officially related to this forum?
My Nexus 7, 8GB arrived today at 4:45 but unfortunately when I powered it up it was DOA. On the welcome screen I get an error message that "Unfortunately, Nfc service has stopped" and to press OK. But when I press OK the error message comes right back....over and over. I called Asus technical support who had me do a hard reset but that just made it hang up while booting. They gave me the run around about issuing a RMA and said that I need to contact Google Play Store where I purchased it.
Called Google Play and after being on hold for 45the minutes finally talked to someone. On and off hold for another 30 minutes I was told that I will receive an email with the next steps for a RMA. Still waiting.
Sorry that yours arrived DOA. It would be nice if they would tell you something about when you can expect a replacement to be shipped. It would be even better if they did like Amazon and send you one first with a return label to send the dead one backOriginally Posted by rcm13502
I got this via email today...

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.
