Re: And the Nexus 7 Killer is...
I have a GT7+ 32gb and it's a great device. Build quality is excellent, don't experience any lag since the ICS update, and does everything I need it to do. The only thing I wish it had is a higher resolution screen, not for video because streaming movies is fine, but for text. When viewing websites or magazines, I have to zoom in a little from the overview to get the text to clear up.
If I didn't already own this and was looking to purchase a 7" tablet today, I would go with the N7 or maybe, the GT7.7. (btw, I hardly ever use the TF101 because I find it too big for casual use). I do use the CM9 touch pad for reading kindle/nook books to my kid.
I did go look at the N7 thinking the higher resolution would make a difference. After playing with it awhile, I didn't see enough of a difference to make a purchase. It didn't seem noticeably faster nor was the screen that much better in terms of text clarity. And JB, aside from some features I would never really use, I didn't see the "butter" experience.
I can't see people choosing the GT7+ over the N7 unless they really need the extra storage, camera, or IR remote. The next tablet for me will be the ipad mini if and when it comes out. Depending on price (a big if considering the price of the recently released ipod), I think the ipad mini will do to the 7" tablet market what the ipad has done.
