Actually. the average 7" is about .75 lbs or with a .3 variant. So that is standard for a 7".

Another thing I saw, was that by putting the sd-card slot in, you're using the sd-cards formatted using FAT, which then opens up Microsoft to collect licensing. To save an estimated 5 dollars a machine, the sd-card was dropped to stop MS getting a cut. Why the Galaxy Nexus didn't have it either it's believed.

So the Ipad I mentioned in my post was bought by my wife. I agree with you. I watch videos on my TV. I have Ipods and my phone to listen to music. Having a bigger screen is nice, but an unnecessary expense. It's just a toy. If you can afford to blow 500 on a toy Ipad or 200 on a Nexus 7 then that's great, but the practical side of me says I can do all this with my phone so why waste money.

I agree with you Totally
Why all the hate... I think its because people keep thinking you should have everything everywhere in one stupid machine & I disagree having access to it all would be great but for me its not required I'm with you on this one I have 16GB on my vibrant packed with music I have no time to listen to except while driving and my aux jack plays it clearly over my system speakers I have 16GB on my Galaxy SII which is my cellphone for now as im not interested in the galaxy SIII If i want to watch TV I go home which is rare as I dont have the time to be entertained In any event the problem im still having is to access email from my phone SUCKS BIG TIME i want the tablet cause it has a bigger screen the sII screen is bigger than the samsung vibrant but still not big enough for web usage my hands are not small but there not interested in carrying around my gigantic toshiba laptop or zooming and scrolling on any smart phone to read BASIC EMAILS & DOCUMENTS i will be ordering a Nexus 7

GPS is particularly notable as something the iPad only offers on its 3/4G models—the wifi models don't provide real GPS.

I have to reply to this post because i find it a bit off the wall. First off, this tablet isnt sad, show me another tablet for $199 or $249 that is faster or better then the nexus 7. You cannot compare a $500 tablet to this, it is not a "feature packed" tablet that blows the doors off everthing else but i would easily choose this tablet over the kindle or toshiba and you cannot compare it to an ipad (which i think is over priced junk anyway). Secondly asus is a good brand, one of the best in my opinion, and show me a manufacturer that does not have any problems.... Im not making the nexus 7 out to be king of all tablets but i would buy it for sure!
