    Default N72 no hdmi big mistake

    The N7 which I own has some great tv/movie apps but no way to view other than on that small screen. I was hoping for HDMI out. I was betting on it, but NOOOO. I think that is a big mistake since most abdroid tablets have HDMI and apple of course like my ipad 3 and ipad mini have wireless streaming. Until google/asus adds a way to get its apps on a TV i'm passing and keeping my first generation 7. It's been perfect and there's nothing about the new model that is sny major change for me. Your thoughts.

    They want you to use the Chromecast HDMI plugin which is, in my opion, is much better not having to deal with cords etc

    Yup, chromecast is way better than having to deal with cables.

    It uses a Slim Port Adapter for HDMI.
    Plug the slim Port Adapter into the 7 and a HDMI cable into the adapter.

    How can Amazon reviewers know if the new Nexus 7 hasn't gone on sale yet? Here's an article describing the fact that the new 7 does have Slimport tech:

    And it's listed on Google's own site:

    No it doesn't work on the original 7.
    No one ever said it would, it's a feature on the new 7.

    You can use the original 7 with Chrome cast.

    You can alway put tape over the camera lens to show your disdain and disgust, with Google, for their spineless capitulation to the camera cabal.

    Then you can buy a second one, tape it as well, then take pictures of what you've done to both of them using only the front facing cam. Then attach the pics to an email to Google complaint dept

    They were referring to the nexus 7 1. So now slimport is confirmed for the n72 which is great along with new dongle. I think i'll go for the n72

    That's right.
    That'll show'em we don't need any stinking improvements.
    Just give me the good old fashioned horse powered version. The kind real men use.

    If those Instagram dilettante's want a camera, let them use an ipad mini.
