I was hoping for a Nexus 10 but I did not like the design of the leaked unit. Asus should have made the Nexus 10 too, Samsung just can't seem to pull it off when it comes to tablets imo.. The Nexus 7 on the other hand is one sexy little tablet, with 32GB at the rumoured $249 price it is killer. Definitely getting it.

What about you?

You are forgetting the lawsuits Apple threw at Samsung. I own a Galaxy Tab 10.1 and it is thin and sleek. That of course is before Apple went thermal nuclear on Samsung. So as to appease both Apple and the courts they had to change the look of their tablets.

I bought the N7 because of the size and hardware.

I wholeheartedly disagree. I have a Galaxy Note 10.1 and its fantastic. I have since sold both my new iPad and my Nexus 7. Will also be picking up a Galaxy Note 2. I will check out the Nexus 10 but I am a fan of TW and I really like some of the S Pen functions. Neither of which will be available on the Nexus tablet.

Just sold my Nex 7. Too small to "enjoy" surfing the web. Yes it works, but just too much scrolling side to side and up and down.

I'm trying the Nex10!!!!

Already got my Nexus 7 16GB so no 32GB for me but the wife has promised me Santa will be bringing a Nexus 10 my way this Christmas. :eek::D

I'm a fan of the smaller tablets so my proclivity is towards the N7.

Nexus 10. Excellent hardware staying at the top for at least a year. It's, at last, a worthy contender to the iPad 3/4 - one that I'll also use and not just put in the drawer to gather dust because of the inferior screen.

Now I wish the big-screen Notes had a Full HD (or even better-resolution) screen. For me, the low(ish) screen resolutions of all large-screen Wacom pen-based Adroid tablets have been dealkillers.

Nexus 7 has good specs and seems generally more interesting than the nexus 10. Maybe the 10 is better in person, but in the video the bulging sides make it look cheap.

The iPad mini is looking like a worth competitor to the nexus 7 and if the iPad 4 is anything like the iPhone 5, it will be hard to beat.

Probably not gonna get either, but if I was going to pick one, probably the Nexus 7 32GB.

They're reaching upwards of 1 million sold per month. http://www.engadget.com/2012/10/31/nexus-7-sales-close-to-a-million/

I like a 10" tablet and my Xoom is due for an update. I like the micro USB + micro hdmi out so I can still hook it up to my TV I just wonder if ill be able to charge it.

As far as the looks I think it's terrible at least looking at that leaked photo. That may actually prevent me from getting it. I'll need to see one in person.

I have a 16GB Nexus 7 and I'm tempted to get a 32GB 3G version but I probably won't.

I personally am debating about getting a Nexus 7 for myself but then again I already own a 10" tablet.

I have the 16gb Nexus. I just tether my phone when I want data.

Works like a charm.

That Nexus 10 is looking sexy though and the specs and resolution are drool worthy.

I was actually thinking about doing that. I wouldn't mind paying the difference and getting the 3G version but I paid extra for 2 years insurance and I live in Ireland :p

have you tried just tethering your phone? Or do you like to just carry the tablet itself?

Have the 7.

Previous to the 7 I hardly used my iPad and in the end gave it to the in laws. It was just too heavy, really defeats (for me) the purpose of having something more portable than a laptop.

Now with the 7 it fits in my pocket. It's a squeeze but it works and it's not that uncomfortable. And it's light. Works well as a reader or video player on the train.

I do tether to my phone and have unlimited data too but it's just more convenient.

I have Nexus 7 and have trouble putting it down. The 16:9 ratio feels really nice, unlike iPad mini's screen aspect ratio.

The Nexus 10 has a better processor, more RAM, and higher screen resolution. It seems to win the gaming argument hands down. but what about the apps for Android tablets (aren't they pretty much minimal)?

I was asking about the N7. I thought 1280x800 would be 16:10 aspect ratio? That's the confusing part.

No. They have every big name app iOS has.

You know the confusing part IS i've seen other tech sites say it's 16:9 as well. That's what's confusing.

I voted Nexus 7 but I already own it in a 16GB variant. Before getting my Nexus 7 I had a 10in tab and boy I just love the 7 so much more. Jobs was way wrong about the 7in tab market. For me, I wanted a tab for the living room couch. Something easy to use to check emails and surf the net. The 7 fits easier in my hands than a 10 and it doesn't take up nearly as much space on the table. I love the 7 form factor. I doubt I will ever own another 10 tab again.

It's funny...I just got rid of the N7.
I really like android but I just found the 7 inch screen too small to comfortably view the web with. I don't take any devices other than my cell phone out of the home, so the portability factor isn't an issue.

I guess the grass always seems greener on the other side!

Everyone definitely has their own preference. I didn't buy my Nexus 7 to be my laptop or desktop replacement. I still have my laptop and office. I wanted a simple device to keep on the coffee table in the living room to access the web and check email. I now use the Nexus more then I do my laptop. So much so that I'm seriously thinking about selling the laptop and just sticking with a Phone/Tab/Office setup. I did have a 10 tab before but now that I've used the 7 I doubt I will ever go back. The Nexus 7 is the sweet spot for me as far as tabs go.

After having passed along my iPad 1 and spent 8 months waiting for the mini, I just made an order for the Nexus 7. It really came down to price, portability and diversification.

The mini will see some upgrades in the next couple of years and maybe then I'll judge how my android adventure went and if a fall back is to be considered. After having lived with the iPhone for the past 8 months, I wanted a bigger screen but wouldn't shell out for the unportable full sized iPad nor the mini that won't fit in my pocket as the Nexus hopefully will.

I also felt imprisoned in the Apple ecosystem which is not bad, but I'm limiting myself from different experiences. I plan on continuing upgrading my iPhone every few years and maintaining the Mac as my computer though.

Is ther a decent 10" tablet with hi-res screen, 32 Gb storage and LTE? Seems only the iPad has all that.

The only device that comes to mind is the ASUS Transformer but I don't know if they have LTE, those are sold at Best Buy. Might want to check Lenovo and the new MS Surface Pro due out in a few months.
