Getting a Nexus 7 hasn’t been a good experience for a growing list of people and this had been seen in our recent article about the Nexus 7 shipping, which saw well over 100 comments from users that are wondering where their pre-order is? There were plenty of people that have their Nexus 7 on the way, but more seem to be complaining. This is why it’s nice to hear some positive news about the Nexus 7, which is clear when you look at the reviews.
We have included a Nexus 7 video review below that takes a look at that device compared to the Kindle Fire, and also explains how nice it is to be able to hold the tablet in one hand, which they explain is much harder to do with the larger iPad. This video gives you a quick take on the pros and cons for Nexus 7, although most of the review is positive and it’s fair to say that while some people have shipping issues, they’re still positive about the Nexus 7 hardware.
The Nexus 7 review that shouts praise — ABC’s technology channel has been hands-on with the Nexus 7 and couldn’t sing and dance more about how good this new tablet is, although they did start out by trying to see if the new kid on the block could beat other 7-inch tablets. These include Barnes & Noble’s Nook tablet and the Amazon Kindle Fire.
They found the Nexus 7 wipes the floor with the competition, and smashes them on screen quality, although it fails to match up to the iPad’s Retina but this is expected at $200 cheaper. Have a read of the full 2-page review here and let us know if you agree with their findings. In summary the reviewer found that you won’t find a better tablet for $200.
If you were going to buy a 7-inch tablet would the Nexus 7 be your choice, or would you wait to see if Apple release a mini-iPad in 2012? You might also want to see this unboxing video of the Nexus 7, which we posted earlier today and some of our readers might find quite funny.
