    If you buy a book or a movie in the Google Store you get to keep it even if you just uninstall it right? Just like with the apps?

    Is it possible that Google might drop the 64 gig one around Black Friday/Cyber Monday? Or maybe they might have a deal for purchasing their products through the app store those days?

    I'm gonna try to sell my old iPhone on Amazon so maybe I can get some extra cash so maybe I wont feel so bad about getting the 32 gig lol.

    I almost got it because my toshiba last about 1.5 hours on "energy saving mode" before it dies. I upgraded to the Note2 so I dont have the money now, but hoping to get on before the next semester starts. Btw, which one do you have?

    If Google's going to repeat history--which I have a strong feeling they will--a few months down the road they'll introduce a... ...whole new tablet with completely updated specs and faster processor that all of us serial updaters will want to upgrade to
    This would be the way I would phrase it.

    For the price of some extra memory, you could already be 1/4 of the way to replacing this tablet. Or half way to getting/replacing the next N7 that comes out.

    Too much money to justify an extra 16GB, imo.

    I see what your saying, I'm hoping this tablet will last me at least 2-3 years before I even think about upgrading to a new one. I know by the time I finish graduate school the Nexus 10 will still be getting updated, so around 2015 I'll look for a new tablet.

    Now that I think about it, because of no expandable storage, I think I may need to get a 32 gig since this tablet will be in it for the long haul.

    I just hate the constant upgrading that Google will do (Jk, I love new tech) to the Nexus line up.

    I use bluetooth mice (Logitech ones and the Dell travel one) and bluetooth keyboards (Logitech ones, and the K810 which I highly recommend) with my Android devices. Both work at the same time, and it's nice. I have used the Transformer Prime, and it's a nice tablet--I didn't try the mouse with it, but have no reason to think there would be a problem. When you use a bluetooth mouse with an Android device, a little mouse pointer appears--it's really cute, and you'll never see it if you don't use a mouse. It can be used instead of the touch screen, but I find myself still reaching up to the screen sometimes because I like to pinch to zoom. If you are trying to decide between the Transformer Prime and the N10, they are both great tablets. The Transformer has an SD card slot, and the N10 has stereo speakers--I have made my choice, returned the Transformer and am waiting on the N10--but either will work fine for what you are doing. The Transformer's keyboard dock has a button for power-off and a back button, but it's more expensive and you don't really need those. If you use a bluetooth keyboard, you have lots of other buttons--tried the K810 last night and the control key and windows key work in the logmein app to remote control my PC! Oh, another plus for the N10, it uses a standard charger. If you have the Transformer you need those special cables, and you spend an extra $100 or more if you want a charger for home, one for school and one for in the car. I have an external battery that will charge my N10 or my phone in emergencies and they will use the same cable.

    That's me in a nutshell.

    I purchased the original Droid1 on VZW as my first smartphone, having no idea that it was unlocked, supremely hackable, and that the Android Dev community would support it unlike any other phone to date.

    Then I heard about the N1, and of course it never came to Verizon. So I waited for the Bionic when it was time to upgrade. I kept it for a total of 2 months and then ordered the Samsung Galaxy Nexus the minute it went live.

    I am now a Nexus fanboy. I will ONLY own Nexus phones. I have owned the Nexus 7 for a few months and my Nexus 10 will arrive tomorrow. My goal is to support as many Nexus devices as Google can possibly make. I want carriers, manufacturers and Google to take notice that there IS demand for a pure Google phone/device with cutting edge hardware.

    It's not just the hardware or the lack of skins. It's unlockable. You don't have to jump through hoops and pray for insider leaks of bootloader keys or pre-release software to unlock it. That means the development community will support it. That means AOSP will support it. That means you can do whatever the f**k you want with it (just about). It means it's MINE, and the OEM doesn't own MY device.

    And that means if another Nexus phone doesn't come to Verizon I may even consider switching carriers. But I hope I don't have to make that decision. I have another year before I will have the itch to upgrade from the Galaxy Nexus anyway.

    I think it's obvious what the majority of people want. The Nexus 10 16gb is still available in USA. the Nexus 10 32gb was sold out within hours of being available.

    The Nexus 4 16gb was sold out faster than the Nexus 4 8gb.

    People want more local storage space, Google would be stupid to ignore this, and future products will reflect this.

    Can manufacturers be blamed (I doubt Google was the driver) for not selling the best they can straight out of the gate? No, and anyone who is shocked by this tactic, is frankly being naive to the process.

    Anyway, I'll bet they don't sell an upgraded N4 mid cycle, but that the next nexus phone will have a minimum of 16gb onboard. I'll bet they do sell a upgraded N10 though with 64gb option, 6 months from now. I do wish they would have done it immediately, I would have been willing to pay $550-600 for a 64gb 10" nexus tablet (just as I was willing to pay $450-500 for a 32gb 10" nexus).

    I bought the 16GB N10. I'd love the extra storage space, but there's no way I was going to pay an extra $100 for something I'd likely use very rarely. About the only time I could see myself using that much space over 16GB is if I was storing several movies on the device for a long trip where mobile data wouldn't be available (to be tethered from my phone). If they priced the 32GB at $449, I may have considered it.

    Of course, expandable storage would make all of this a moot discussion

    Pretty much the same for me. If I really need extra storage that much, I'll look for an accessory of some kind that will allow me to add extra space. Or I can always settle for cloud which is a great option.

    I have last year's Samsung model in white. It's a great device, so long as you remember its limitations. The battery really does last all day long, but it's not something on which you can expect to keep 15 tabs open without issue. I love it bringing it in my bag when I travel because it's so light and with a slim profile, especially compared to my laptop.

    Well thanks to the community, I'm gonna get the Nexus 10.... 32 gig. Just in case.

    Now I need to watch the Play Store. I really feel like Google dropped the ball on this. How did they not know that this was likely gonna happen? Hell even Samsung let you pre-order the GS3 and that was still a huge mess. Google needs to learn from Samsung and dare I say it, Apple. This whole situation could have been avoided.

    I think you are making a good decision. This tablet certainly looks like a contender.

    Just a side note observation I have noticed and wanted to see how everyone else feels.

    I was in Staples yesterday and played with a bunch of Tablets. The big thing I have always disliked about most Android is the laggy touchscreen compared to iOS. I'm not sure why this is such a problem but even my Transformer Prime just hesitates way more than it should IMO.

    I did a simple pinch to zoom test which I think really shows how a device performs in every day use. I loaded a website on the iPad 3, the new Asus windows 8 tablet, the Nexus 7, Acer Iconia, Asus TF300 and Transformer Prime. The differences in this experience were very obvious and noticeably glaring when switching back and forth. I felt that the winner was the Windows 8 tablet followed by the iPad then the Nexus 7. The other Android tablets lagged and stuttered significantly compared which surprised me considering that Asus also makes the N7 and they put very little bloatware on their OS skins. But I even felt that the Nexus 7 still fell behind the Win8 tab and iPad. It wasn't bad to any degree but just felt like you had to push the screen more compared to the ultra sensitivity of its competitors.

    Regardless of my findings, I am still happy with my Transformer Prime but wonder why Windows was able to make such a responsive touch screen experience on their OS right out of the gate, while Android seems to lag behind in this department. Even with Project Butter Android still couldn't compete with the others. I am waiting to play with the Nexus 10 to see how it performs and I think it will be a winner, but I feel that Android is trying to fix this more with hardware rather than with Software. More work needs to be done with project butter IMO.

    Are you positive it's lag? The reality is that Android animations are still intentionally more deliberate compared to iOS (haven't used Windows Phone/8). What you are attributing to lag on a Nexus 7 may actually be intentional. There are some who actually dislike the schizophrenic nature of how iOS is hypersensitive to every single mis-touch/swipe.

    The Nexus 7 was definitely the best of the Android bunch. But for example, if you were to just try to pinch to zoom in and out as fast as you can you get a hesitation and just doesn't respond as well. I find the same effect when I pick up my employees iphone 5. It just feels perfectly responsive compared to my SGS2. The s3 and one X are better but I still feel like there is a studder. You can see this in so many iPad vs. Android tablet comparisons. The iPad usually does exactly what it's supposed to when touched while the Android tablet isn't as responsive and can require an extra swipe.

    Try it the next time you are at the store. I think you will agree with me.
    But I will still say that because Android tablets give you more options for less it is still the best deal out there and I hope that in the coming updates we will see even more improvements.

Its amazing, and I finally just rooted it and flash CM10 M2 on there and it is even better than before. I am looking to get myself my first tablet this holiday season and I was hoping for some help on whether or not I should get the Nexus 10 or possibly some other tablet. So what I am looking for in a tablet pretty much is portability and reliability. I am currently a graduate student and I keep lugging around my beast of a laptop and its starting to really get on my nerves. It can't hold a charge at all and overheats all the time so I have to carry a cooling fan unit all the time. Anyway, what I am looking for is a tablet that will be able to replace my laptop while I am on campus or in the library so I can write papers and just do note taking while in class. I was wondering if this might be the tablet for me or should I wait to see what else comes out. A big thing for me is that I need a physical keyboard to work on, it can either have a charging dock or just be a blue-tooth keyboard, it doesn't matter to me. Another big thing for me is that the keyboard needs to be portable, either its an accessory, or a third-party keyboard.

    Sorry if this was a little long winded or sounded a little needy, I just want to make sure I am making the best purchase possible. What do you guys think?

    Thanks for your help

    P.S: If I get the Nexus 10, I'll get the 16gig so I can spend some money on a keyboard.

    @BcSirstaroth, did you end up buying the N10? Here is where I am at:

    I have not had a chance to check out the N10 yet because it is not available in any store. I am not going to buy a machine costing that much money (its plenty for me) without being able to see one or at least buy from a store where I have the option of returning it. My view about a tablet is that it needs to replace paper for me. I have a very decent laptop and a smartphone and I don't expect the tablet to take over any major functions that I perform on those two devices. The 'niche' that the tablet needs to have is that it should replace notes I take during class, meetings, etc. and store in different places. I would like to be able to read .pdfs on it, and make markings or take notes directly on that. I don't need to watch movies on my tablet, and that is why the N10's biggest USP - its screen - is not something I give a lot of weight to. Maybe this is too specific a demand I'm making of a tablet, but heck that is what I need.

    So I did try my hands at both the N7 and the Galaxy Note 10.1. this week! And I have to say, interestingly enough, the Note 10.1. is the winner for now.

    I had wondered for some time now whether the N7 would be good machine for note-taking. I like the fact that it is small and perhaps be a little less discrete during meetings and such where I want to use a tablet for taking notes. But alas, I came to the conclusion that for 2 fundamental reasons the N7 doesn't work for me: one of which of course is the size. It is a great size but there is not enough space for me to rest my wrist and write with a stylus. I don't want to have to write with the keyboard all the time, and there simply enough real-estate screen on the N7 to get a decent notepad up and running. I ended up scrolling very frequently in Evernote - which was the only decent app where keyboard entry notes could be written quickly. My assessment therefore, lo and behold, is that it is a great media consumption device with occasional e-mailing but not much else for my needs. I don't need a 7-inch screen to watch movies or read books on. I found myself getting quite frustrated when I was reading .pdf files since I like to mark in them directly and this was too small.

    The second big reason that the N7 doesn't work for me, and this unfortunately relates to the N10 as well, is that there are almost no decent apps for writing. I tried a whole bunch of them - HandRite, Genial Writing and what not, but they all suck *big* time. My concern about the N10 is that it will have the exact same problem. I suppose I could wait and watch.

    Briefly on the Note 10.1: I have to say that the Verge's review of it which turned me off it in the first place is somewhat unfair. I don't experience the lags that review showed and the multi-screening works well for me. The S-Pen and the S-Note app work extremely well for me. The fact that it is able to recognize math formulae and put them into a note is very impressive. I also have to say that the reason I put it back on my list of tablets to consider is the announcement about the Premium Suite. It addresses several outstanding concerns I have read about the Note 10.1, and I have to say that I am very very impressed that Samsung has responded with an outstanding update.

    Bottomline: I have successfully eliminated the N7 from things-to-consider and am back to a Note 10.1. vs. Nexus 10 situation.

It addresses several outstanding concerns I have read about the Note 10.1, and I have to say that I am very very impressed that Samsung has responded with an outstanding update.

    Bottomline: I have successfully eliminated the N7 from things-to-consider and am back to a Note 10.1. vs. Nexus 10 situation.
    teffects,

    I purchased from Staples the Pre-ordered Nexus 10 32 gig and then not even 3 days later it was back inside the Play Store, so I went ahead and cancelled my order. While waiting for my money to return back to be I began to rethink about purchasing a 32 gig and realized even with my SGS3, I still have 3 gigs left in my internal storage, and I haven't even touched my 32 gig external SD card yet. I just purchased the the Nexus 10 16 gig instead. I realized that I do not need 32 gigs and wasting an extra $100 wasn't worth it.

    I have played with the Note 10.1 at Best Buy and while I did enjoy using it, I still can not get past Touchwiz and I had a few instances of lag using the demo tablet. I know that the lag is probably due to wear and tear of the device, but I didn't find it overall amazing to use. As for the S Pen function, it is useful for most people but not for me. I am getting a tablet because I am tired of writing everything down on pen and paper, so I didn't see a use for the S Pen. You may have a different opinion that I do.

    I can recommend if you are able to purchase the application, Office Suite Pro, it is amazing and I currently use it on my phone when I am at school and brainstorming ideas for research papers and etc.

    I agree entirely about wanting to eliminating pen and paper - that is precisely what I'm trying to do as well. I am trying to write notes directly onto .pdfs, write notes and thoughts electronically rather than on pieces of papers, different diaries and notepads. The S-software on the Note 10.1 seem to me to have worthwhile apps to do that, and I suspect they will be reference points for me. But I'll continue to look for regular apps which I could use were I to get the Nexus 10 eventually.

    Dude, thanks for the Office Suite Pro recommendation. I'll look at that rightaway.
