is right, although it's worth adding that the GPS issue does appear to be a software issue, rather than a more critical hardware issue.
That being said, +Google
has been very quiet in response to the deluge of reports of this issue. It is actually very disheartening as a gen 2 N7 owner. It serves me right, I suppose, for buying a tablet a few days after its release.
As for the multitouch issue, it seems to be only an issue on some devices. Mine does not experience the issue, though there are plenty of reports (and demonstrations) of this issue.
I am very pleased with my Nexus 7, overall, but the feeling Google's support has given myself and the community by not keeping its user base up to date will make me weary of buying another of their products. That being the case, as well, I wouldn't recommend anyone buying the new Nexus 7 until the current issues are worked through, or in the very least, given a time frame from Google for being resolved.
