    Wow, the makers of those cheap Chinese ICS tablets that are currently around $150 here in the US better lower their prices to about $75 or so, QUICK. This thing has just made them irrelevant.

    Thinking of picking one of these up ASAP.

    Debating whether or not to pick one up. They claim 9 hours of HD video but without an SD Slot for storage expansion, you will probably only be able to fit a few hours of HD video on the device.

    and I love how the Xoom and Galaxy Nexus will receive 4.1 OTA mid-July, that's not bad at all!!! I'm sure VZW will delay it a bit, but that's what's great about rooting DancingNexus we'll probably get a Rom looong before VZW gets it.

    I'd have to see it first. After watching the videos it looks small.

    What looks to be the idea is that you have all of your videos stored in the cloud - when you are going to go somewhere you download a few of the movies for offline use, and then when you're done you just delete them from the internal memory and save them for use elsewhere back on the cloud. Just the only justifiable way I could think of doing that.
