lol I love the N7 hate in this thread.. people hoping the price drops by $100-150 by Christmas.. just stfu and enjoy the device or buy your iPad mini @ $329 soon. Yes the price on the N7 will drop just like with any new hot item in the next 4-6 months.. but nowhere near the ridiculous level people in this thread are suggesting it will drop
Only if you are planning on storing a lot of local data, otherwise it is a fine device for online news and magazine consumption. I agree it should be cheaper but retail price wise it destroys the 8gb Nook tablet and Kindle.
I have 135 apps (primarily games) and over 200 eBooks. No movies, no music, couple hundred photos. That leaves me with 2.2GB's of free space.
There are downsides for sure. I have a few games that I need to rotate onto the device (FIFA, Madden, The Dark Knight Rises, etc) due to space constraints. I typically only have one of those on there at a time. I also don't have music or movies.
The previous poster is right though - if you are likely to consume 8GB's then I'm guessing you'll want more than 16GB's because most likely you store music and videos. Even 32GB's is light if you want to carry around your media.
This is a smoking price. Tempted to pick another one up. I love the 32GB option and certainly would have opted for it had the price difference been $50 but even now I'm not going to pay an extra $100 or so for 24GB's of storage. I would rather be inconvenienced and carry about a USB stick when I need more storage.
There ya go @ least your being objective and giving each a try... most apple users in my experience just blindly follow. Make sure you unlock your Nexus bootloader and root it before ultimately making your decision.. makes all the difference in the world. Sure the device only holds 16-32 GB of applications.. but when rooted you can use all your massively large thumb-drives and micrso SD chips with a microsd to usb adapter for $2-3. I plugged in a 1 TB Samsung portable drive and the N7 powers it just fine.
Got my iPad mini coming tomorrow maybe I might go see if staples near me as one instock and do my own comparison and return the one I don't like.
Or you can wait until there are hundreds of them traded in and get it from Cowboom used for $59.
That sounds about right for a 8GB 7" android, beats a GPC device I'd say.
Another as a "smart" photo album, for example create an android app to display different groups of photo depending on the time of day, day of month, or getting photo from your facebook, friends etc, the possibility is endless, a hundred times better than a "dumb" digital album which costs about the same.
For $59, it makes really useful smart device, if it has a mini hdmi can run as a smart TV too. A programmable smart device, this is something "premium" priced ipad could never do, but if you ask me, I think each house can use twenty of these smart device for dedicate use on many things people usually got used to be will have a life change with these devices.
I pay tax at Staples both in store and online. A $40 discount for only 8GB reduction seems like a great deal to me. Root and use an external SD card over OTG USB if you need to expand storage.
I have the 8GB and paid $199 for it. I love it. 8GB is plenty of space for the dozens of apps I have installed. If I want to bring a few movies along on a plane flight, I bring an OTG cable, SD card, and card reader along.
For $160, I'd be interested in getting another. Is there an online inventory checker?
They are just rebranded Samsung/Toshiba tablets. Those factories in China have little trade laws on rebranding. You just need to watch the specs, the IPS screen, and a lot of youtube videos on reviews. Ainol has been around for awhile, so it's been around the block as a chinatab and has a nice following.
These are probably failed QC samsung and toshiba tablets. Not all 100,000 tablets made by samsung come out perfect. A lot of these are probably the rejects or old models and then rebadged as these. same trick as "refurbished" items.
Nothing to worry about failed QC as most of the time it's just something that doesn't perform quite up to spec. (i.e. dead pixels, slower ram/cpu, cosmetic blemishes)
