What are they charging for shipping?
add it to your cart and see
I like it but I'm going to hold off. It really can't do anything my rooted KF running ICS can't already do minus the front facing camera of course. There's Jellybean but I'm sure a JB ROM will be available for my kindle fire soon enough.

If they would have put 2GB of RAM I would be whipping out the credit card right now, with only 1GB I think I might have to wait to see what the next two quarters will bring.
I know Acer is supposed to come out with something similar.
A couple questions for you guys...
Having WiFi only, how would the GPS even work? I would love to be able to take this for walk, hiking, etc and be able to listen to music and or watch TV or even map my hikes, but it seems almost worthless to me. I'd love to have it as a book/magazine reader, and would love to have it at home to be able to watch Netflix or Hulu when the kids are watching TV, but beyond that, what is it's usefulness? can you download google maps and use it standalone as a navigation device?
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.
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
The lack of storage is kind of a bummer.

that blows. So the 16gb will be under 14?
gung ho, I'm now on the fence..
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.
