    Re: No Nexus 7 for me

    Great review on anandtech about Nexus 7. It beats out ipad 3 on some benchmarks. All the reviews from the big tech sights have given it great ratings. Some USB-OTG functionality is supported from the mini usb port. Might be able to add storage.

    If anyone is worrying about storage space, I'm fairly confident that you could share folders of music and the like from your computer, and only put on stuff that you'd take away from home or you don't want shared on your network.

    It's supposed to reach India by October according to this: Google’s Nexus tablet launching in India in October depending on stock availability.

    Maybe some of it is FUD. However, today it was reported here that

    Malware is frequently turning up on the official Android marketplace Google Play – although admittedly less frequently than on some of the more dubious third party sites.
    Moreover,

    Security researchers are warning of yet another Android malware outbreak which has spread to nine app stores and infected 100,000 with code designed to covertly purchase apps and content from China Mobile’s Mobile Market.

    ...

    Once downloaded, the Trojan will automatically place orders for paid content and apps at China Mobile’s official Mobile Market online store without informing the user.
    Google is heading for trouble! These security issues may have become intractable by now.

    I hope that Android security problems will not spill over to Linux even in the long run, although Android will be ever more closely integrated with our safe operating system.

    Google is also loosing the trust of its customer base as it discards popular services such as iGoogle.

    Re: No Nexus 7 for me

    What I'd worry about is if Google becomes the last platform (after Apple and Microsoft) to start making steps to lock the system down to trusted software sources only. "Malware" stories like this could make that happen - and honestly, I'm not sure that I can argue it's a bad thing for the average user.

    Ditto. It's exactly the tablet I wanted from exactly the right make, and I can't believe it's selling for a price I can afford. (Well, sure, missing the back-facing camera. Otherwise, exactly the tablet I wanted from exactly the right make.)
