    Looks like I'm late but yeah wait and see at this point. Tegra 3 isn't getting any younger, and it's kinda laggy on 4.2. I don't plan on upgrading until they stop updating it but I also bought mine a month after launch, if I didn't own one already I'd wait too

    HDMI would be the only thing that would make me want to buy a new N7. I would like a WiFi that could support Miracast like the Nexus 4 phone but not sure that Miracast will work as well as a HDMI port. Other than mirroring my N7 to my HDTV I think my current N7 is just great.

    The Nexus S launched in 2010 with 2.3 Gingerbread, received ICS 4.0 in the beginning of 2012 and JB 4.1.2. following that. That keeps it current up to where the HTC One was launched in 2013. 3 years of updates is by far above normal in Android and that's what we're looking for.

    Assuming the Nexus 7 won't be updated this year or next year is just silly; the Galaxy Nexus went from 4.0 to 4.1 and then 4.2, based on the Nexus S it'd be safe to assume it'll be on KLP too. That puts the N7, which started on 4.1, onto KLP and the next two iterations based on a 3 upgrade cycle, and I haven't seen anything to suggest they're not trying to beat that as a standard.

    Google actually seems to be doing the opposite, and trying to get all Nexus devices up to the newest build as fast as possible. Thinking about it in the terms of how Sammy, HTC and other OEM's treat their Android based mass consumer devices is a mistake. Google's money doesn't come from you upgrading, it comes from your participation in their universe as much as possible. The features to do that are on the latest and greatest software, not tied to any hardware.

    Their statement was completely nonsense and not based on the history of Nexus. I hope this wasn't the deciding factor in you returning your current N7. If I hadn't purchased one and wanted one, I'd wait for the new one, but otherwise the current one is a great device and, based on actual history, should be supported well into 2015 for another couple of major OS releases.

    N7 is cool indeed. I have decided to return it because N7hd is just two monts away, n7 had some minor bleeding issue and case was cracking. I am concerned about built quality of current generation N7. There seems to be many users with screen bleeding, screen lifting etc. Let's hope next gen n7 will have these problems fixed

    The build quality is fine, you just got a bad one. I've had mine since a month after launch, no issues whatsoever. That being said, waiting for the next generation is right choice.

    Unfortunately these are the exact same type of issues we've been seeing since the first tranformers over a year ago. I keep hoping Asus will address them with new models and upgrades. So far, no luck.

    Source: I've owned and returned 4 asus tablets in the past, all with similar or identical defects.

    Yet, I remain optimistic as I do like their products.

    i think this is problem with asus in general. i do own asus tablet and i do like it but i feel built quality is not that great. but then the price was pretty cool. at the end asus is good company. better than acer or hp. perhaps not as good as apple.

    Wait. The Nexus 7 I have is running slow under 4.2, I would hope the refresh will be optimized.

    I just realized that nexus 7 new screen resolution might be total overkill especially with so many apps being designed still for phones.

    Let me throw a bit of a wrench. What if you could get a refurb Nexus 7? I'm looking at one whichc would save me almost 50 quid.. I've heard that Nexus 7 is pretty good and the lag issue with 4.2 can easily be solved (its to do with google currents)
