I received my Nexus 7 32GB with Mobile Data last night. I think I was likely one of the last stops on the UPS route, as it hit my doorstep at around 7PM.
I’m not actually flirting with the dark side or planning a switch to Android. But I do think the Nexus 7 looks interesting and it seems to rated as one of the top small tablet rivals to the iPad mini. I’ve tried out both the 2011 Kindle Fire and this year’s Kindle Fire HD and wasn’t particularly impressed with either – so I figure it’s about time to spend some time with a tablet running ‘real’ Android as opposed to the Kinde’s heavily ‘forked’ version.
I have not spent much time at all with the Nexus 7 yet, so no impressions to share just yet – other than that my 9 year old daughter thinks it is ultra cool, despite being told she is not allowed to like Android devices.
Once I’ve got to know it better I’ll share some thoughts on the Nexus 7 of course – but I’ll likely do that over at my more general tablets site: 247 Tablets, while keeping the focus 100% on the iPad here.
Have any of you tried out the Nexus 7? If so, please share your thoughts on it in the comments.
