    It fucking rules. 7" is the perfect tablet size, it's fast as hell, it's light, the battery lasts for 10 hours or some shit, it has an HD display, it runs the very latest version of Android and it only costs 200 bucks. With swiftkey 3 installed, typing is easy and fast, and this is coming from a guy who absolutely fucking hates screen keyboards.

    I'll take this over an iPad any day. Several iPad owners I've shown it to were actually impressed by it as well, and you know it's almost impossible to impress those assholes with something that doesn't have a big, gay, glowing apple on it.

    Wifi only ,so you'd either have to tether to your phone in wifi hotspot mode or purchase a wifi hotspot.

    I like the looks of this. Is it just impossible to get around the shit google wants to sell or can you use this the way you want? I dont need to buy movies and books.

    You can use it the way you want. I got it rooted right away so I could install Linux on it if I wanted to. Android Jelly Bean is fantastic.


    You get 25 bucks for free to spend in the Play store, so that's pretty nice also.

    Looks like Motorola Xoom(avoid) and Samsung's products are your only other choices for cell modem equipped tablets there.

    Love Swype on my phone, but I like Thumb Keyboard for my tablet since Swyping on a big screen doesn't quite feel as natural as it does on a phone
