    I guess I'll be handing down my original Nexus 7 to my girl and getting the 2013 32GB one.

    I just hope the video out thru an adapter doesn't suck like it does on my Verizon nexus. I even ordered a legitimate Samsung adaptor and it always glitches badly or plain doesn't work. I'd love to have a good usable hdmi output for work. sadly the port to adapter probably won't be it.


    as for the lte one, anyone know if it will be like the old zoom tablet, where you could pop your sim cars out of your Verizon 4g phone and put it in the tab an have 4g data on it without all the extra line crap? if so, I'm in. be of use when traveling around and needing something with a much longer lasting battery in airports and such. their wifi is mostly useless


    if it doesn't have either of those, I'll probably pass and keep my old 7
