- I'm not dumping on Google. It was just a bad choice to put out another 8gb device, especially one without a flash card.
As far as your use goes, you haven't used it long enough. in 6 months to a year you'll understand exactly what I'm talking about. If 8gb was enough they would never have offered a 16gb unit.Jul 23, 2012
- I don't expect any company to come out with a perfect device. Even when they are doing their best they must make compromises for the sake of economics. But very often they are not trying to do their best they are trying to serve a marketing strategy. Consumers must choose from the results. I just truly find it ironic that a device with 32 times the CPU power of my Archos has less then 1/5th the storage.
But the Archos retailed for $800 in 2005. I can live with the compromises. And most likely within a year someone will make a tablet that matches the Nexus and has an SD Card slot.Jul 23, 2012
- Google put out a nice device, as long as it isn't the 8gb version. There are enough 8gb devices out there to know that 8gb is a defect. The Google Nexus 7 is sold out everywhere, that is the 16gb version.Jul 23, 2012
- Better get it in stock before the Kindle Ice (get it- earth, fire, water, and ice) comes out.Jul 23, 2012
- I bought the 8 gig device because I knew 16 gig was not enough and I was not paying $50 for 8 gig. When this becomes cramped I will order a Kingston Wi-Drive. Probably the 32 gig. The 16 gig is $50 and the 32 gig is $90.Jul 23, 2012
I think 8gb's on the other hand is rather small. I would never go for a 8gb anything. 16gb is okay. I wouldn't have bought one if only the 8 was available, but I heard USB-OTG is supported on the Nexus 7. Which means micro usb to your 16, 32, or 64gb usb flash drive. Problem solved.Jul 23, 2012
