Nexus 7 Questions
I'm thinking of getting the N7 HSPA+ 32GB when it comes out an a week, and have a couple of questions existing owners might be able to answer.
1 - Anyone used their N7 with GPS *and* Wi-Fi tethering at the same time? IF so, how was battery life? My phone dies very quickly while using 4G or 3G and GPS/Google Navigation. This is one of the main uses for me of a small 7" tablet; I'd like to be able to go using navigation for 3 or 4 hours without it dying on me.
2 - Anyone using Touchdown on the N7 for email / calendar / tasks etc? If so, how is it on the larger form factor and screen? This is what I use on my Bionic and it's also critical for me.
3 - Is there a good way to sync / backup the N7? I'd like to be able to do this easily. I'm used to iTunes for iPad / iPod touch. There are some commercial apps for Android but I don't know that they work on a tablet, and don't know how effective they are at restoring etc.
4 - The Nexus 10 is able to have multiple accounts. I haven't heard that the N7 can do this; anyone know if it can? This would be awesome as I could keep my work account separated from personal accounts.

Re: Nexus 7 Questions
I can't answer questions 1-3, but as far as multiple accounts, that is a Jellybean 4.2 feature. Once the Nexus 7 gets the 4.2 update, you should be able to set up multiple accounts.
Hope someone else can answer your other questions....

Re: Nexus 7 Questions
I've only had mine a couple of days so I may not be fully correct but:
1 - From what I've seen, GPS is only switched on when required (by Maps and Earth) so it will only be an issue if you use the Nexus for SatNav, which I haven't tried yet but intend to.
2 - Sorry, don't know it.
3 - It automatically backs up and restores your "app data, Wi-Fi passwords and other settings" (it says, under Settings) to/from your gmail account. If that's not enough, install MyBackup Pro from Google Play (free and very good, but remember to copy the backup files off the device).
4 - As the others said, once we get 4.2.
