    I am looking forward to what Google has to say about this refresh. Especially the screen res and whether it has 2G or 4G of Ram. I am glad to see that Best Buy is going to be carrying it too. I am glad to see they are sticking with the 7 inch size instead of going with an 8 like they were rumored to be going with. At $30 more than the first build they will have a killer tablet on their hands. I know what line I will be in.

    I pre-ordered from Best Buy. Supposed to receive it on the 30th.

    I was hoping for 4G of RAM and a bit of a faster CPU but with all that they shoved into this new 7 at the price point they
    have it at for the money it is the best bang for your buck out there and I'm not complaining.

    Whoa. $100 cheaper than the ipad mini, with retina screen, and still has 10 hr battery? Tech specs are phenom. If it performs well, this could be big deal.

    I can't believe the number of people that are bitching that it doesn't have an SD card clot. I have one with my Tab 2 and have never used it. I should have mine on the 30th.

    LMAO yeah...

    Anyway, my 4.3 upgrade did not go so well. Apparently while I was away last week my tablet got unplugged and went into deep sleep. I -think- I was able to get it out but some people never can and it's a total brick. Others have to do a factory restore.

    Will report back tonight.

    It's takes a REAL fanboy to spend money on something you don't really want just so you can criticize it.

    Supposedly Best Buy stores have them in stock today. Some Reward Zone members may have received a 3X points coupon that expires on the 27th, that could be used on the Nexus 7 if you can walk in the store and get one.

    No go for me. The system wouldn't take the coupon and they weren't willing to override. I suspect the same will happen online.
