    Hey Guys,

    I'm seriously considering buying this tablet

    I've read that the MSI tablets do not include access to Android Market. Can anyone confirm? Is that a huge drawback? Must be ways around that, yes?

    Thanks

    I'd personally get the Nexus 7 tablet, you get a great tablet for short money and you get the vanilla android experience.


    Yeah you are ;)

    Yeah, the Nexus 7 is not only a really nice tablet with a great display, but it's "official" and gets good timely updates and has a lot of developer support. I had one since launch (recently sold it on ebay) and it was the best 7" tablet I'd ever had.

    From what I've read in the past three minutes, MSI tablets do not have access to Google Play (Android Market no longer exists).

    lol...I'm more used to XDA where we all had a chance to get our flames in before posts were moderated. You know, for the good of the community. ;)

    This is huge, you don't have to worry about if (not when) the manufacturer will update the tablet. They've gotten better but you have to wait to see if they decide to release the an update then wait for it.
