Re: Google makes the Nexus 7 tablet official

Thankfully I hit the US in August, so doubtless to say I'll pick up two while I'm there plus they're bound to be cheaper

Hope it's not the final price [ https://www.digitec.ch/ProdukteDetai...Artikel=246336 ] CHF 349.

US Price : $249 [~240CHF]
UK Price : 199 [~300CHF]

Re: Google makes the Nexus 7 tablet official

The US price is slightly more expensive once you add on sales tax and delivery as one of the guys bought his in the US. I bought mine for 184 from Tesco in the UK on an offer and I absolutely love it well worth the money and it is really slick. Still both come in under 300CHF

"According to Asus, the Google Nexus 7 tablet will hit European markets in early September, costing €249 for the 16GB model. The smaller capacity 8GB model will likely cost €199, although that was not confirmed. [249€=300chf]"

Re: Google makes the Nexus 7 tablet official

Finally, coming out in 3G!
Some 4G would also do (hopefully).

Re: Google makes the Nexus 7 tablet official

A coworker bought one into work today (he used to work for Google and has connections). It is pretty nice! I like the form factor a lot. Jelly Bean is a nice operating system.

But.... all it did was makes me want an iPad Mini now. =D

Correct it's due in a couple of weeks, personally I have no problem tethering it to my smartphone so it eliminates the need for an extra contract

You might be waiting for another couple of months rumour has it, that it will be showcased in October and if you like the walled garden approach then it's for you

Re: Google makes the Nexus 7 tablet official

Still trying to decide between the Nexus and Kindle Fire HD. They seem very comparable. Anyone have any tips to sway me?

For me neither because they are both missing a micro SD card slot (why oh why?) but if forced to chose I would go with the Nexus as it has android 4.1 and has the Android app store, the kindle has Amazons app store with restricted content.

What is the difference. I thought the main/most important apps from the google store are in the amazon store too.

Re: Google makes the Nexus 7 tablet official

I've got the Nexus for the past 2 weeks and I have to say I'm pretty happy with it. I wasn't too sure if the 7 inch screen would be satisfying enough for me but now I do must of my surfing on it. It's definitely more comfortable lying on the sofa with using the nexus over my laptop.

Regarding Nexus or Kindle. Well firstly does the Amazon app store work here?

I know I can't get any apps over the Amazon store app no either my phone or tablet so I asume it won't work with the Kindle here either. I could be wrong but that's the first point to check out for me

Re: Google makes the Nexus 7 tablet official

This isn't the case the play store has the greater amount of apps at the moment and is also cheaper, Amazon has a massive array of services but I'm not sure if they will be made available here as I know there are plans in the UK to stream movies to your device.

On the SD card front neither does the iPad but no one whines about that it's called cloud storage

My home network is configured to bypass the "country blocking" by amazon, hulu, netflix etc. So that is not a concern. I also have a US amazon account.

Amazon want to restrict the content on you machine to only products that Amazon profits from, Amazon books, Amazon films, Amazon approved apps. In my opinion soon as a retailer wants to restrict what you can do with your device you can bet it's not going to be for your benefit.
