    Not bad at all, though it's personally in a sort of no man's land for my preferences--smack dab in between the rMini and iPad Air sizes. I love the size of the rMini for my small portable tablet and like the approx. 10" size of the Air for use around the house or with a keyboard (would actually go a little bigger here before smaller). Also would struggle with max of 32GB of onboard storage if there's no expandable memory.

    Really like the design as I'm a fan of the style of the current Nexus devices.

    Yea you have to assume 32gb max

    I have little hope of google coming back around on sd cards :(

    I can deal with lack of expandable storage so long as the OEMs offer devices with larger amounts onboard--16GB is useless to me in a mobile device and 32GB is also less than ideal for my use, especially in a tablet.

    Yea I use a hootoo tripmate or shared network drives at home to stream my 'local' media to my 16gig iPad air. I can make do with 16 gig worth of apps. Same solution could apply to nexus tablets. Not really a solution I hear you, but a workaround :). I can't stomach apples storage upgrade pricing, unless I'm buying second hand :)

    Love the look, but not the price. I'll probably just keep my GPE G Pad.

    I like what I am seeing.

    I'm pretty content with my iPad R-Mini, but I'd give this a twirl...

    Downside: "Right now, the tablet is planned to start at $399 for the 16GB version, with the step up to 32GB costing $499"

    That's steepish for a Nexus.

    HTC's battery life history makes me wary of this, but otherwise looks schmick.

    Loving the extension of the N5 design. Now give me the 6" phablet.

    If that is the pricing, I'm surprised and disappointed. One of the Nexus' big pluses has always been their price points (similar to Kindle Fires). Since this is similar to the new Samsung S tablets' prices and Ipad minis, it's not very attractive.

    I have hears good things about the M8. I haven't tried it myself, though I did have the One M7 and that was really disappointing.

    I fear that people will think "for that price I'm getting an iPad or a gimmicky Samsung tablet"

    Skeptical over 4gb ram. Decent processor and stock android, 2gb would be fine.

    exactly. Shield Tablet with Tegra K1 + 2GB RAM is super fast.
