    Re: No Nexus 7 for me

    I just updated my Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 (16GB) to ICS an also added the much hyped Google Now to the mix. I have HSDPA, WIFI, SD CARD slot, all the apps I want from JB and can now run Chrome on my tablet. Everything I need in a 7" tablet right there!

    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.
    What you're linking to is the trojans I'm talking about that people are choosing to install. No malware is just automatically infecting Android devices.

    I paid £350 for it a few years ago. With 3G(HSDPA) SD CARD and front facing camera, flash, good rear facing camera, I think it's a great little tab. Along with a micro blue tooth mouse, it acts as an office in my pocket. I will get 10 hours average use from it (benefit of not having lots of CPU cores )

    You can pick them up for £170 now and if I were spending my own cash, I would get one of these and update to ICS and within the next couple of weeks JellyBean should be available for CM9

    I am seriously thinking now if I should get this for my technically challenged, Windows virus receiving sister. The pre-order special is still up and she has also wanted a Kindle fire but I shot that down because I seen it as a waste at the time. Tough tough decision...

    Google is paying me back for my complaints about G+ events: they finally sent me shipping notice for the Nexus 7 I had on pre-order last evening... and the link to the UPS tracking number keeps coming up "Not in our system yet".

    Now every time I try to check what the expected delivery date is, I visualize a few google engineers sitting in their cubicles drinking beer, giving each other high fives and saying "Look, he just clicked it *again*".

    I can almost hear their evil cackling.
    Geez, the guy has a nobel prize for his linux work. Couldn't he get a free one or a discount?

    He pre-ordered it two days ago and already has had it shipped to him... I think he's already getting special treatment!

    But yes, Google has terrible customer service. They really need to work on that.

    For me is simple.

    200$ = ~163€


    So: Nexus == ~163€... may buy
    Nexus == more than 164€... f. google and goes chinatablet.
