    I have had both Gen 1 & 2, Gen 2 is far far better and given the choice between ipad and nexus I reach for the nexus every time.
    I find the size and weight very nice as well as having stereo speakers. Do you have much experience with droid os?

    As ZeroHour said, avoid the first gen Nexus 7.

    Nexus 7 (2012) = Don't bother.
    Nexus 7 (2013) = Definitely!

    I have had a 2013 Nexus 7 for a week and so far I love it!
    This is my first tablet and first Android device and I have so far found it easy to work with. With the Boat browser I have flash support and I have downloaded some very cool apps for monitoring our network. The only thing missing is Java support meaning the F1 timing page won't work and I object to having to buy the official app.

    If you use Android then the nexus 7 is more of the same but with less crudware and rapid updates

    I am still trying to find a decent case though...

    The official Google flip covers look quite nice, but you can't buy them yet.

    Colours: Black, White/Red, Grey/Red, Grey/Blue

    There was a free app for the live timing on google, but it looks like it was pulled - lots of F1 apps have been renamed too.

    There is still reference to the app here: F1 Live Stream for tablets | AppBrain Android Market

    You might get lucky and find the apk out there somewhere.
