    No SD slot - charging tax/shipping - some bummers here. Will see what KF2 brings to the table.

    I was kicking my self for just grabbing a Acer 100 at the awesome price of $169. But with no SD, and as far as I can tell no HDMI, and no rear facing camera. I am patting myself on the back

    no SD slot is the deal breaker for me, I don't want to be forced to use cloud service if I fill up internal memory. Guess ill be keeping my xoom wifi around longer.

    ordered mine the minute i could. I got the 8GB and the case (i didnt want to wait for cheap cases to show up on amazon, ill just have the peace of mind of the google case)

    reasons against 16gb:
    I'm a broke college kid (obviously not broke if im throwing money away on a tablet, but you get what i mean. the $50 difference is a lot of alcohol)
    I have over 16gb of music alone, so if i cant get it all on there, why only put half? Plus, music is on my phone and streaming.
    You can downsize movies to put on it, itll hold a couple of your favs or newest releases, watch and delete. besides i havent watched a movie on a
    mobile device since my iPod Video
    If you really wanted to, plug an external HDD in it and badabing! you have the ultimate device for a long plane/car ride.
    Ill definitely have this tethered to my phone all the time, which means ill always have my phone, so i can use that for holding larger files.
    GTA3 is a 400mb game, you can put a couple of those large games on the device and be good.

    AND! It's a freaking NEXUS TABLET!!
    you can tell im excited.

    Do any of you think that this tablet will ship sooner then 2-3 weeks? I'm really hoping they just put the longest ETA possible so people won't get pissed, but i'm leaving for vacation in 3 weeks and am really hoping it ships sooner.

    I like it. Everyone needs to take a chill pill. If you want a superty-duper Android tablet with expandable storage, their are plenty others out there. This isn't meant to be a show-stopper or an "iPad-killer" (I really hate that term). This one is meant to go after Kindle Fire, and I hope they're able to beat Amazon at their own game. I also dig the new more phone-like layout of Jelly-Bean. It looks refreshing- reminds me of the Touchpad or iPad. I think Google tried too hard to make ICS and Honeycomb look unique and this layout is more simple and makes more sense. I also like that Google is making Nexus a brand, kind of like what Toyota did with the Prius recently. Critics are always slamming Android for it's "Fragmentation," maybe making a family of devices that are engineered together will cut that rep Android has and make it's brand more unified. Knowing that Google is planning to release multiple Nexus devices this fall, this I/O has me rethinking my pre-order of the GS3.

    If I had $200 to burn and was tabletless, I'd definitely pick one up. But since my iPad 2 fully fits my needs, I don't see any reason to get another one. But I'm going to recommend this (barring terrible reviews/defects) to anyone in the market for one.

    Preordered 8gb and the case. I figure I'll only really be putting apps on it. All my music is in Google Play and I'm not going to be taking photos with the front shooter. I don't download any movies or things like that anyway. I cannot wait any longer for this. Been patiently waiting since the rumors started. Mid July can't come fast enough.

    Soemone said you don't get charged til it ships. If that's teh case I think I'll order it. I want the 16GB, but I will mostly be using it at home on wifi so I could use the cloud for music and get the 8GB.

    having the cheap price, quad core.. i could deal with that. I don't need a rear camera. I seen too many iPad users walk around snapping pics with theirs. Saw someone on a cruise get off the boat using the iPad as a camera in port. That was idiotic.
