    I want one, but I want it in a 10" variant.
    10" + sd card slot

    I'll second the hope for an SD card slot as well. I think one of the few things I like about my iPad is the 64GB capacity. I constantly throw movies and such on there (along with a ton of music and games) for traveling.

    I'm a solid MAYBE, it would be my first tablet.

    I pre-ordered one... now just waiting.

    Also for what it's worth I have owned a 10.1" tablet with an SD card slot and a full size USB port and I currently have a Galaxy Tab 8.9" which has neither. For everyone screaming for a SD card slot or a bigger tablet in my experience neither has really been necessary. Don't get me wrong, it would be nice to have a SD card slot but that should not by any means be a deal breaker. And after using larger tablets for a while I have been considering picking up a smaller tablet anyway, something a little more discrete and portable so the 7" screen size is going to be perfect. But that's just my 2 YMMV.

    I think I am at a MAYBE as well. I'm waiting to see what other information will be divulged about the MS Surface. That tablet looks downright sexy and I love the W8 interface. Pending on price and overall functionality, I could go for a Nexus 7, Fire 2, or MS Surface.

    From what I have heard the MS Surface is going to be in the $700+ neighborhood when it is released. However it is definitely in a whole seperate league of tablet. It is something that is way more capable than an average Android tablet and closer to being a rival for an Ultrabook Laptop.

    Yikes! Not sure if I want to throw that kind of money around on something I may use sparingly. Maybe I can swing a student discount or two before I graduate in December.

    Very fair point about the 7" screen. I think it depends on what you use it for. My dad just got a refurbed Iconia 10" since his Nook Color wasn't big enough for work.

    Personally from a storage perspective, 16GB doesn't really cut it for me (again my 2c). I've got that in audio, and I'm not really interested in dropping that into the cloud since I don't always have WiFi when I'm using a tablet (flying). Tack in 5-10GB in videos, another 1GB in pictures, and a bunch of apps to keep me entertained :-D and I like having 32 or more.

    I can definitely understand what you are saying about wanting more storage for Movies Pictures and Apps but personally for music I just use my phone which does have an SD card. I can't really see a situation where I would want to carry around a tablet (even if it is a relatively small 7" one) just to listen to music when I can just use the phone that I am going to already have with me anyway.

    But I am just basing this on my current experence and usage with tablets. Right now on my Galaxy tab I have maybe 2 songs downloaded, I also have a few movies, many thousands of pictures, about a thousand e-books and a bunch of apps. with all that combined I am still using less than a third of the 32GB of storage avaliable. And for movies I usually just load what I might want to watch before I leave and delete them when I am done. Personally I don't see the need to carry a massive movie collection around with me everywhere.

    But like I said for me, and based on my previous experence with tablets the Nexus 7 is going to be just about perfect.

    Nexus 7 definitely looks great, however I think I'd benefit from a larger screen since I do a lot of work on my laptop during the school year. Prior to the announcement of these newer tablets I was looking into an AsusTransformer Prime since it doubled as a laptop and tablet. Thus why the Surface looks so attractive to me at this point.

    Yeah if you are going to have a need for a larger tablet then definitely wait and get what you need. For me I have a larger tablet and I love to use when I am at home but when I travel or day to day use I would really like to have something smaller that I can bring with me just about anywhere. Not to mention cheaper! If I am going to carrying my tablet with me everywhere and therefore increasing the likelyhood of it being stolen damaged or whatever I'd rather it be one that is fairly inexpensive and easier to replace.

    Got mine on Friday. My first tablet. I could not resist the price. Been having fun with the larger screen(compared to my GSIIET) and Jelly Bean. Google Now is awesome! I really like the size, it is very portable and light. I was using my phone for all my internet searching and was getting tired of trying to find things on my phone's 4" screen. I am happy I went to Sam's Club.
