    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.

    No expandable memory, no buy. Really like the other specs, however the lack of memory expansion hurts. For example, I've been in Switzerland for the last two weeks and I like to "load-up" on media when I'm traveling like this. 16gb is not enough. 32gb or a memory card slot and I would have bought this device.

    no I mean once the OTA comes out to the Galaxy Nexus LTE (and Xoom, but we know how that works out in the end), VZW will delay it to their phones, like they have every other OTA to a Nexus device.

    The lack of expandable memory is a concern. A couple of nandroid backups and bam, you about out of memory right there.

    I don't see what the big deal with not including an microSD slot. I mean does it really take up that much space? Google seems to be pretty anti it. Considering the NS and GN lacked one.

    I've had a 16GB HP Touchpad since the fire sale last year and never had storage issues. I'm dual booting webOS and CM9 and loaded it up with few games and my most used apps and occasionally a couple movies.

    Ugh, wish I could afford this even though I really don't need one, but my student loans are killing me. :disappointed:
