This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Are You Happy With The Improvements Made In Jelly Bean?

Now that the real, thorough reviews have landed, you've hopefully had a chance to read thorough some of them and get an intimate look at the Nexus 7. To summarize David's review:

The scary thing about the Nexus 7 is that I can't think of a good reason not to go out and buy one. Seriously - if you're on the fence, just do it.

In fact, just about any review you look at will say the same. Sure, it only has 8/16GB of storage. Sure, it's 7" when most other tablets are 10". Sure, it doesn't have a microSD slot or HDMI out. If you want to nitpick, you certainly can - it's not a premium tablet by any measure. But it's $200 for cutting-edge tech, and you're getting a hell of a value for your money - especially considering just how popular tablets are becoming.

With that in mind, do you plan on picking one up?

Do You Intend To Buy A Nexus 7?

    These polls need a "I've already bought one" option.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/wwickedd wicked

      Agreed. Pre-ordered mine the first day.

      • Qurtyslyn

        Mine is Pre-ordered as well.

        I ordered mine right after the keynote.

      This poll needs a "I'm replying from my nexus 7 right now" option

    • Hugo Cliff

      Same pre-ordered already, the wait is killing me.

      • Ranger666

        I agree.....i'm checking my account on the play store daily....i'm sure I'll get an email once shipped.

    • AaronGingrich

      That would fall under "yes" ;)

    • Superguy

      Or an "I would have bought one if it had an SD slot but won't since it doesn't" option.

  • http://profiles.google.com/tdrussell1 Trent Russell

    saying it "doesn't have HDMI out" is a bit of a misnomer...since it comes with an HDMI out cable.

    • http://twitter.com/crazifyngers crazifyngers

      It has been confirmed by many to not have an "hdmi out cable" The only ones saying it came with one was ifixit.

    • ericl5112

      They don't have HDMI out. There may be the chipset for it, maybe event he headers in there. The outside case doesn't. They do have a dock connector, and may well have an HDMI dock for it though.

  • Google_is_the_Higgs_Boson

    I would buy this. But I already have a Kindle Fire. Mostly for the kids. Next time I buy a tablet tho, will most likely be the Nexus 7...

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1571224442 Thomas Bass

    There needs to be an option for I already ordered one!

  • begadkepat

    Another good poll option would be: "I would buy a Nexus 7, but I already have a tablet." Interestingly, that's my situation.

    • FirefighterMatt56

      Same here. Replying from my Transformer Prime and I love it!

  • Joshua Banks

    No option for already bought? ;)

  • Michael Monaghan

    I was planning on it, until you said there was a ghosting problem. Now I'm not so sure.

    • Keith0606

      Supposedly that issue is limited to some of the i/o tablets. Not all of them and not on any of the production models tested by asus.

  • http://twitter.com/anakin78z Jens Zalzala

    Already ordered. I think this tablet will do very well.

  • maiop23

    A 10 inch would peak my interest. 7 inches I would feel have a limited appeal, since it is fairly small. Only reason I got a kindle fire for my dad was because he never had a tablet before, and that learning curve on a fire is much easier than with an android tablet to a technical illiterate.

    • Google_is_the_Higgs_Boson

      The size ant that bad... I got the Kindle Fire for my kids... Using it seems very nice in the hands... I'm sure the Nexus 7 will be too... :)

      • Simon Belmont

        Haha. I like your user name.

        Just had to mention that. It made me laugh.

          Your the first person to say anything to me about it... I thought I was surrounded by my fellow nerds...lol

    • http://twitter.com/Juvenall Juvenall

      I would argue that after using the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, the 10-inch form factor has lost it's appeal to me. My Xoom made reading far too painful and taking it with me became enough of a chore that I would leave it at home. With the 7-inch, It's light enough that I can hold it for extended periods with no strain, my fingers don't have to stretch for game controls, I can "thumb type", and when I'm off somewhere, it easily slips in my pocket. I've easily used the Tab 2 in the last two months as much as I had the Xoom over the last year.

      That said, I've also preordered the Nexus 7 to replace the Tab 2. Samsung isn't exactly known for it's speedy updates and the development community around it is sorta flat with no signs of improvement.

      • Kenny O

        Exactly how I feel after using the Transformer Prime....I bought my son a Kindle Fire, I like the 7 inch form factor much, much better

      • Rigelian

        I'm in the same camp. I own the Xoom as well. My wife owns an original Galaxy Tab 7 inch form factor tablet. Her's is more practical. It's easier to read with, easier to carry around and far easier to type on. So I preordered the Nexus 7.

    • ericl5112

      They are so incredibly different. A 7" blows 10" out of the water for certain things, and vice versa.

    • http://profiles.google.com/andrewc513 Andrew Chandler

  • Mike

    Here's to hoping they sell these in Best Buy's aswell.

  • http://royblumenthal.com/portfolio royblumenthal

    The lack of a (high quality) camera is a deal-breaker.

    • TheWhiteLotus

      Why? This will replace your phone? Even if it does, you'd be taking photos with a tablet?

    • Kenny O

      They had to make sacrifices to get the price point where it is, since people that take pictures with a tablet are definitely in the minority it's better to leave off a camera then go cheap with the screen or build quality.

  • tanknspank

    Plan on getting both a N7 and if released a N10. N7 will be great for portable gaming and reading while I'm sure the N10 will include HDMI and such, so it will make a great home multimedia device for me. Both will probably be cheaper than an iPad. Will then probably root and install an app to sync app data between them for a (hopefully) seamless experience between the two.

    • Kenny O

      This is kind of where I'm going. I am selling my Transformer Prime, whatever money I have left after paying for the Nexus 7, I'm saving for the 10 inch Nexus. The 7 will be a great everyday device where the 10 inch will be exclusively for the house and long trips.

  • tsunami1609

    Do you guys actually think it would be worth it to buy one if I already have a galaxy nexus running JB? I don't have a tablet, just a MBP and I not really sure I need one, especially since it's just 2.35in larger in screen size.

    Thoughts?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1519620310 Zac Rodriguez

      I'd say no then. If f you're not super excited to get your hands on it (coming from a techie viewpoint) you won't use it that much and it will gather dust. That is why I'm not buying it. I already have a Galaxy Nexus running GB and a Transformer Prime.

      • Kenny O

        Off topic, but.....Are you happy with your Prime? As much as I want to love mine, I am dissatisfied with it. I don't feel it's nearly as fast as it should be and sometimes wifi signal strength is just plain bad which seems to effect performance as well. Surfing the web is generally very sluggish......Was thinking rooting and installing Cyanogen might help, but didn't know if it was worth the trouble or I should sell it and get something else.

        • Aaron

          Do it. Rooting my phone was the best decision I ever made with it.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Chris-Marshall/1393515108 Chris Marshall

          There is also the new Virtuous Prime Rom out there. That rom is awesome. It allows you to keep the preinstalled apps that it came with, if you want, get rid a few useless ones, or have it wiped clean of any apps while still keeping the customized UI by asus. It is also updated with each firmware release Asus puts out as well.

    • Kenny O

      Kind of hard for anyone but YOU to answer this question.

      I have a Galaxy Nexus running JB and I ordered one as soon as I could. I like that I have something slightly bigger to browse the web, view content and play games. I have a Transformer Prime now, while I like the 10.1 size for viewing - I absolutely hate having to carry it around anywhere and it sucks to play games on. I will gladly sacrifice the screen real estate for more portability and a better gaming experience. Another couple of reasons two devices work for me - letting the kids watch a movie at a restaurant and not having to give up my phone. IMO the most important - battery life. If I use the tablet to keep me occupied somewhere like a waiting room, etc I'm not running down my phone battery (which is my only slight knock on the G-Nexus). Plus, I use my tablet a lot in bed at night while my phone is on the charger.

    • ericl5112

      Here's a comparison of a GNex and N7:
      http://tvcalculator.com/index.html?6df156cf1c568033c9267a5e6dac8efc

      The N7 screen is slightly more than 2.5x the size. It's really a huge difference. It stil might not be right for you, but they aren't terribly close either.

  • Charles Clout

    Yes. Yes. Yes.

  • Dorilife

    +1 for Pre ordered already.

  • Chris Smith

    Pre-ordered as soon as the Nexus 7 info went live from google themselves. I got all giddy and had to get my hands on one. I then immediately listed my Kindle fire on ebay. (Got $150 for it which is going towards the Nexus 7) So the way I see it is, I am paying $50 for an upgrade to my Kindle Fire (Received as gift).

  • Harb

    I certainly consider myself a gadget fiend and die-hard Android fan, but I STILL don't see the point of tablets. I have a powerful desktop, powerful-but-portable 14.5" laptop, and a SGS3 - no matter how I try to reason I still can't come to the conclusion that I also need a tablet in my life.

    • http://twitter.com/Juvenall Juvenall

      For me, the biggest selling point was reading. Trying to read an eBook on my computer or laptop never felt natural. With it in my hands more, casual gaming became a bigger thing for me. Small puzzle games, for example, always bored me on the desktop, but after finishing up a few chapters of whatever book I was reading, a few rounds of Temple Run would hit the spot nicely.

      Around the office, I've found taking my tablet to meetings to be, in general, far more practical than even my insanely portable Macbook Air. When all I want to do is jot down a few notes or where we may fill up an entire whiteboard wall with notes and I want to grab a picture, my tablet has come along for the ride.

      When I was sent off to An Event Apart and Future Insights Live recently, my 5-6 hour flights in both directions were insanity free thanks in part to the tablets form factor. In fact, on one of the flights, the guy in front of me had his seat reclined back far enough that I couldn't type and see my laptop screen at the same time. So in that case, the tablet was the only option for me.

      Don't get me wrong here; I'm not trying to suggest a tablet is for everyone and it took me a while to really figure out a workflow with one, but now that it's been integrated, I can't see myself going without one now.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Chris-Marshall/1393515108 Chris Marshall

      With some tablets it is a slightly more portable, longer lasting laptop. So long as it has file management, and it has the apps that do what you need.

  • lanemeyer88

    Yes and I am also waiting for a Nexus 10!. I am ordering a 16gb Nexus 7 for my wife and I will be holding out hope for a Nexus 10 by the end of the year. Hopefully Google understands from the reviews and comments about the Nexus 7 that some of us (not all) need a bit more offline storage on the next device. I plan to buy a 10' tablet for use while I am travelling where wi-fi is frequently unavailable or unreliable at best.

  • http://twitter.com/rohanXm Rohan Mathur

  • PaulAtreides

    I'll wait until the holiday season to weigh my options.

  • Andrew Lang

    Yes, but I'll probably wait until the Kindle Fire 2 is announced. Amazon's content offerings are too compelling not to give it consideration, if the hardware is comparable.

  • Kernschatten

    Waiting to see if Asus can produce a sub $200 (as the rumors say $149 to $179) or if the 370T that was hijacked for the Nexus 7 ever sees daylight.

    Acer A110 is supposed to hit the $200 mark also. It will have expandable storage.

    • ericl5112

      Acer will have to cut a lot more corners though. Google is selling at or near cost for the N7, and makes it back on play store purchases and customer base. Acer has to profit on the hardware.

      • Kernschatten

        It's funny, I keep hearing how Google had to cut corners and sell at cost, but when Asus first showed off the 370T (which is what the Nexus 7 is derived from) they were talking about the same screen, 16gb storage, Tegra3, rear camera, and microSD slot all for $250. So if Asus thought they could pack all of that in at $250, where is Google selling at cost?

        • ericl5112

          We know little of that. We don't know it was the same screen at all for one. Also, we don't know if it was the same digitizer. By all reports, the N7 is a great digitizer, the Kindle Fire and the Nook Tablet are not. By all reports, the N7 has fast ram and storage. Again, something other cheap tablets struggle with. The above also applies to the Tab 2 7.0. There are a lot of places you can cut corners that don't show on the spec sheet. It's the same reason camera's give you megapixel count and ISO levels, but not Signal to Noise ratios, even in pro level cameras.

          • Kernschatten

            The point is, if Asus thought they could do it on their own, there is no reason that a Google backed device should have to cut corners at all.

          • ericl5112

            What? If you read the post you are responding to, you'd see I don't believe Asus thought they could do it on their own. I think they thought they could make a tablet that had a similar spec sheet. That does not mean the same tablet, there are a lot of components that would make things far worse, but don't show up on paper. In fact, look at Tyler Chappell's post a few below this one. It outlines the corners cut. You know why? Because some people need to make profit on hardware. Google doesn't.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Chris-Marshall/1393515108 Chris Marshall

        the t30 tegra 3 cost around 25-60 dollars depending on manufacturer, the screen cost less than 50, the storage cost around 3-10 dollars, and the case cost pennies. Google is making a good return on this tablet. Dont let their marketing BS fool you. No company outside of consoles will sell at "near cost."

        • ericl5112

          So, we are ignoring cost of R&D that has to be amortized over all the tablets, actual construction, shipment, importation fees, the other components that you seem to be ignoring (battery, ram, motherboard, anything else not on the SoC), advertisement (again amortized), etc? Most people that haven't done product development think the individual components make up the cost of the device. They couldn't be more wrong. By your estimate, it costs google spends ~$120 on parts alone, which is probably off since you ignored half the components. Even if we low ball it and assume $140, $60 isn't much for the rest. Then assume that most sales are done through best buy, game stop and the like who take their cut.

          Where is their "good return"? I don't see it. They do sell things at (and sometime below) cost, since they hope to make it up and more in return selling things through it.

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Chris-Marshall/1393515108 Chris Marshall

            R&D? Are you kidding me? R&D for who? the designers? Asus already created this tablet prior, it had the same specs, same screen, same form factor, and it included both micro HDMI and micro SD card support for 200.00 USD. I followed that device for a good few months. Then it got canned less than two months ago when Google showed the N7 which did not feature either the micro HDMI or Micro SD card slot.

    • Tyler Chappell

      There is also the issue that the Acer A110 will have a far inferior TN display instead of IPS, + a mediocre battery around 3000-32000mAh. Anyone who owns the first Acer A100 knows this all too well, and apparently Acer didn't learn from their huge mistake. The Acer simply won't be worth it, even if it were $30 cheaper than the N7.

      • ericl5112

        Ah, so these are the corners that were cut. It's almost like they had to make a profit on the hardware where google didn't. Plus one to you, hadn't seen those specs.

      • Kernschatten

        Proud owner of an A100, right here. $189 on Black Friday sale.

        • Tyler Chappell

          I remember that sale, I turned my cheek towards it because I was only interested in the Prime at that time, still would have been better than the $250 we paid for it when we decided to get it for my mom for xmas.

  • http://twitter.com/PCSievers P.C. Sievers

    Hell yeah, I think I am one of the rare breed of people who will get a lot of value from a 7" tablet. At £160 it is hard to go wrong with one.

    I preordered the nexus one, i preorder ed the nexus s, and now have the galaxy nexus which I also preordered......I'm sure you can figure out what I've already done about the nexus7

  • RedPandaAlex

    I have a xoom, so I'm sitting this generation out, especially since I'm getting 4.1. Besides i don't think there's much difference between a 4.5 inch galaxy nexus and a7 inch tablet. I'm hoping the next slate of nexus devices will include a padfone option.

    • ericl5112

      You'd actually be surprised. The 7" screen equates to about 2.5x the screen size of a 4.8" SGS3. Hugely different. Even a 5.5" GNote 2 (rumored) would barely have half the screen real estate of the 7" N7. Here's a comparison: http://tvcalculator.com/index.html?b7e22e8d6fd3da06f4b551dd98b2bbe4

      • tanknspank

        that was a great link to show the difference between the two. I wondered the same myself at one point, but came to the same conclusion as you. That comparison only helps my decision to buy one.

  • ericl5112

    I've been lucky enough to play with an IO edition a bit since my friend went. Yes, I'm buying. Has to be 16Gb though.

  • LanceMiller

    $240 (once you include tax / shipping) for a tablet with only 5.25GB of available memory is not something I'd ever buy, & almost $300 (once you include tax / shipping) for the 16GB is highway robbery since it doesn't support MicroSD or HDMI. Honestly I don't see where al the excitement is coming from. A Quad Core Processor does not in itself make for an irresistible purchase.

    • http://twitter.com/PCSievers P.C. Sievers

      HDMI is backwards looking. Wireless streaming is the present. Nexus devices also havent used MicroSD cards since the Nexus One.

      The reality is this is exceptional value to get a $200 HD tablet powered by 16 cores of CPU and GPU. Something had to give at that price point and built up memory was the loser because it is the only one that has workarounds.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Chris-Marshall/1393515108 Chris Marshall

        Yeah because everyone has high speed internet all over the US... um no. Also not everyone wants to stream something to a toy in their home from their main computer, when they have a console that hooks to a nice TV, or a nice screen connected to their computer. Redundancy is nice, but tablets are not HDDs in need of redundancy; then again the N7 is more of a toy than a tablet.

      Totally agree. if Android goes the way of apple... then it looks like MS will save the day once again for those who want to do more than play, read, whatever on their toy.

      • ericl5112

        I spend a significant amount of time writing android apps on my "toy". Very handy. Same with papers, notes, calendar entries, etc. I use it almost entirely for work, and it works much better than a $400 netbook would have, and not everyone wants a crappy, chunky $400 laptop.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Chris-Marshall/1393515108 Chris Marshall

          Well good for you, but its still very limited in what it can do. Glad you like your toy and like programing for it, but remember every app you make for it should happily run on every other android platform, that may or may not include Micro SD (most include it because adding it cost nearly nothing to a board)

          • ericl5112

            Did it take you almost four weeks to think of that? D-, you made the effort, just didn't make any sense. This is why I delete disqus emails. I just read this one, since I hoped a response that took so long was worth reading. Nope.

    If the Nexus 10 comes out with microSD expansion and a tablet UI, I'd put my GalaxyTab 2 on sale and get a Nexus. But I'm not buying something with an oversized phone UI that also wants to force me to use cloud services not available in my country.

    • http://twitter.com/PCSievers P.C. Sievers

      The Nexus 10 absolutely wont have a microSD slot. Google is wholly against them. The tablet UI seems likely but time will tell.

      • tanknspank

        I think it's already been answered by a Google Engineer on G+ that the Nexus 7 used a mix of the 2 user interfaces because it fit better for the device and that 10 inch tablets will be most likely to stick with the regular layout. It has the homescreen, nav bar and the notification bar (mostly the same anyhow), but still uses that tablet layout for apps that we love, like gmail and it's 2 pane layout. She said that the (now) 10" tablet interface just felt cramped on the N7, but time will tell about that.

          The funny thing is, the tablet UI works fine on 7 inch screens. I've used it for months on my Nook Color running an unofficial CM9 build and it's great.

          I don't think Google will restrict other manufacturers from using the tablet UI on 7 inch tablets. They just did it on the Nexus 7 so it can be more Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet like.

  • Cuvis

    How about "No, I already have a different tablet"? I'm sure it's nice and all, but my CyanogenMod-running HP Touchpad has been serving me well enough.

    • Simon Belmont

      Same here. My trusty TouchPad hasn't let me down yet.

      Maybe down the line, I'll snag a Nexus 7. I have nothing against 7 inch tablets.

  • fonseca898

    Like others I pre-ordered mine right after the keynote. I would have preferred the original Memo 370T for $249 with SD card and HDMI out, but this tablet is still going to be great. I'll just be streaming content to bigger screens instead of using a cable.

  • Todd

    Getting one to replace a current tablet and end the upgrade nonsense. Not too fussed over expandable memory as it will just be an at home device. Smartphone is still king for me on the go, hands down.

  • FNAHDI

    Absolutely I plan on buying Nexus 7

  • Sam_Wise_11

    I just wont buy for the sole reason that the most storage you can get is 16gb. If it at least had a micro-usb slot, I would buy it in a heartbeat.

  • KanyeDROID

    Shit is cray

    I am fairly certain that people holding out for a Nexus 10 will have to wait at least a year. This is Google's first and therefore flagship Nexus tablet, and quite frankly the purest Nexus device in existence due to lack of carrier restrictions/control. It'd be a miracle if they took it's crown away as early as within the next 6 months. I just don't think a 10" Nexus will happen any time soon, or this year for that matter.

  • Tyler Chappell

    I think we all should help the general population be much more aware of the Nexus 7. I have created a cover photo for anyone to use with their FB or G+, and it places the jelly bean android's antennae right above your profile picture on FB. If you all love Google and can't wait for your Nexus 7 to arrive like me, please help them make this one of the best selling tablets ever!

    Another thing it needs is "I would buy it, if it had either more storage or and micro SD card slot."

    • http://www.jeffkibuule.com Jeff Kibuule

      When you can get a 64GB microSD card for $70 on Amazon, I really can't advocate buying a device that doesn't include the slot out of principle.

  • peterfares

    NOPE. 8GB is not enough and it has no microSD slot. 16GB isn't enough either for $250.

  • andddlay

    is it worth selling the transformer prime, with the flaws that it contains (gps, browser lagging/freezing (very annoying to me)), for this?

  • Jon

    That would be the perfect tablet for me...If it had some sort of SD slot, either microSD or standard SD. Otherwise you're limited on the storage you purchase ala iPhone/iPad style. And I hate that.

  • Chris

    No expandable memory = no sale.

  • Not anymore

    i really wanted to but the storage is a deal breaker for me.
    screen size was an issue, i'd much prefer if it was 10', but i could work with it. storage on the other hand just won't work for me

  • http://www.facebook.com/rafaelgaiarsa Rafael Gaiarsa

    I've no use for a tablet, yet there's a decent chance I'm getting one of these on an impulse buy. I mean, I've done plenty worse things with 200 duckets.

  • Tarek El-Ghazaly

    I missed all the presales that could deliver it this month...

  • Dreyfuss

    Love the n7 but my home Internet is crap and I need storage on the tablet, plus a way to use my data plan when working away from home.

  • Simon Belmont

    I'm sticking with my fire sale TouchPad for now. I've already heard rumblings that Jelly Bean will be brought to it quickly, and ICS runs great on it.

    I think I will wait and see if Google brings out a Nexus 10. The Nexus 7 may eventually have my name on it though.

  • Sobr0801

    I would buy this, if I didnt have a Xoom.

  • Zerounodos

    Yeah, I intend to, as soon as it arrives to Latin America...

  • Frank

    I want micro sd card slot, & even more, a good camera, so no, won't be buying. I would be willing to pay $100 more for those features, plus 16gb storage.

  • CJ456

    want want want!!!

  • http://profiles.google.com/tiago.cesar2 Tiago Cesar

    Yes if it comes to Brazil, or if somebody bring it to me from U.S.

  • Sootie

    Needs a I feel cheated for living in australia and getting a $50 penalty for no reason option (though I will probably still buy one but its still annoying given our $'s are worth the same and they are manufactured closer to AUS than US)

  • Caifan09

    I'm in Mexico and I can not wait for my Nexus 7!!!!

  • dextersgenius

    Nope. Will never buy a device without an SD card slot - especially if it's a low storage, wifi-only device like this one.

  • Joaquin Perez

    yes hahaha i was going to say the same Lucas!

  • John Petersen

    I played with a Fire this to get a better idea of the screen size. It only cemented my satisfaction with my CM9 Touchpad. 7" just felt like a big phone. I really prefer the 10" screen size. Yes, it is definitely awkward for touch-screen game controls. That's why I use a gamepad. Best of both worlds.

    If Google drops a 10" Nexus for, say, $299 and $349, that would be tough to pass up.

  • GONZO26

    I dont like the the OS is essentially the phone OS blown up, and you cant view the home screen in landscape.

  • Seth M

    I want one, but the 200 bucks doesn't go along with my spending freeze. #gettingmarried :-P

  • Huey

    already ordered one

  • Dylan

    i keep trying to talk myself out of buying one. but almost all reviews i've read are positive. and the only major gripe is no micro SD which i have been without since the Nexus S.

  • corian

    I got mine yesterday through GameStop
