    Hello guys,
    this year in my school we are going to learn with android tablets (not ipads)and the school is providing us a pretty lame 1.2 Ghz cortex A8 10'' android device in a price under 200$, and I was wondering if I should get the nexus 7 instead of the other tablet... would'nt the screen be too small or you think it does'nt matter?

    I fried my laptop, and I'm planning to use the N7 as my "computer". Screen size seems ideal for what I'll need. Probably depends on what subjects you'll be studying I guess.

    What do you need it to do? I think the Nexus 7 is great for ebooks, email, casual web browsing, games, streaming video, PDA functions, note taking, etc. I don't think it would be so good for writing papers, spreadsheet projects, and various tasks where netbook doesn't have enough screen real estate. (That said, a 10" tablet isn't great for those either.)

    I saw the Nexus 7 ay Staples and was real impressed with it's performance .
    There is a way that you can add your Amazon/ Amazon MP3 app/accounts.

    But my main issues with the device:
    • No rear facing camera
    • No expandable memory


    I am a BIG Google Android fan;
    but will wait and see what the new Kindle Fire 2[?] has to offer.

    I got mine for me and my girl (we go to the same school) to use in our downtime waiting for each other or whatever, and also a Logitech Android 3.0+ Bluetooth keyboard for typing papers in Kingsoft Office.

    As far as I understood we'll only use it for reading in class and I think it would be great for it, and after long thinking I am definitely going to buy it but I hope I won't regret, wish me luck!

    hmm... you are so outdated in software. This issue is fixed in 4.1.2 release google did few weeks ago.

    do you see the status on the link as Released??? It works and some users have confirmed it.

    I can't connect my Nexus 7 to my schools Wireless. I followed all the steps for iOS and laptops but when I try to do a search in Chrome or another app, a proxy error page appears.
    I'm using 4.1.2.
    Otherwise , the Nexus 7, size wise, is perfect for most school applications and for carrying to classes.

    What kind of WiFi does your school use? I just got me of these new 7s and I was able to connect mine easily since it restored my password from my android phone.

    Buying a new 32GB Nexus7 and giving my 16GB to my son in college for just this reason. But thinking of it makes me shudder. He's lost his phone 4 times in 18 months.

    From my experience with it, he should well be able to leave his netbook at home most of the time. Take notes, store books and docs etc. Then use his netbook when he has to, and backup everything from the N7 to the netbook for insurance.

    I'm not sure but people have trouble trying to connect even their laptops. I could easily connect my iPod touch although I was limited mostly to built-in apps.

    I'm a senior in college. I bought a new dell laptop going into college. I love it and its been awesome. I just got the nexus 7 about three weeks ago. I now take the nexus to school most days. I have my digital textbooks on it and I can read them fine. I don't notes in it though. Overall its a nice tablet that's pretty good for school
