    WTF, it's only $400. It minimalist and clean and has no fluff that you'll never use anyway and that's my style.

    hope the internals are better than the nexus 7, that was the biggest pos I've ever bought

    for really realz? I've been holding out on a move to android and feel like $400 is no big whoop to test it out. I'm still on a 4s

    yeah, I heard nexus used inferior ram in the first nexus 7, but it was so unresponsive and laggy.. I've heard good things about the 5 though, well except for the fact that it runs on android :cool:

    that 5 inch display will be nice

    interesting. I'm about to go off-contract and switch to straight talk so I'm not dropping 700-800 just to try out android. Figure this is a good way to test it out and if I'm unhappy I'll throw it on ebay and find something else.

    I bought the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition last night, was deciding between that and the new Kindle Fire HDX 8.9, but that one hasn't been reviewed or released yet, so I decided to go with what's proven to be the best right now.

    sounds like a plan.. I'll be interested in your opinion of android.

    I have a year left on my contract, and then it's all about the iphone 6 with the 4.8" display :pimp:

    yeah I love the form factor and the fact that they upgraded the internals and display to match the full size ipad

    Ordered. 3-4 week wait. If it shows on amazon before that I'll cancel and get from there.

    Got the Nexus-10 Tablet a few months back, on account of I am an enormous fan of Google ....

    Was highly disappointing in the cheapness & outdated feel to it, even with the 2560 x 1600, 300 ppi display ... Returned it the following day
