    What it means is they wont be available until you root it and flash the full build ROM from the Android developers site

    hmm now do I replace my current phone with a Galaxy note like I was planning to and wait for the 10" Nexus tab or do I get a S3 and buy the Nexus 7 to use now?

    Or do I get the Note and the Nexus 7

    Ive used a kindle fire (rooted with a custom ROM) almost from day one. The 7" form factor is brilliant, fits in your (large) pocket and the development community is quite active. Thats why i jumped at the Nexus 7, Jelly bean looks fantastic, and I already have google music so I would imagine that TV etc wont be too much of an issue.

    Id go with an S3 and a Nexus 7. The S3 has a pokey processor and is a couple of steps on from the note, but thats just my opinion.

    According to iSuppli, the 16GB Nexus 7 costs $166.75 (£129.21 inc. VAT) to produce, so Google are making a fairly decent profit on each tablet sold.

    The entry-level 8-Gigabyte (GByte) version of Google’s new Nexus 7 media tablet carries a bill of materials (BOM) of $151.75, according to preliminary findings from the IHS iSuppli Teardown Analysis Service. When manufacturing expenses are added, the cost increases to $159.25. The high-end model with 16GBytes of NAND flash memory has a $159.25 BOM, for a total cost of $166.75.

    StickMount now supports Android 4.1 (and therefore the N7).

    Seeing this makes me super happy as I have just ordered the microUSB to pen drive adapter cable for this very reason

    I'd bet with Apples buying power the ipad isn't far off that in terms of cost to produce.

    Bare in mind that doesn't take in to account the cost of R&D, marketing, shipping, packaging, distributors cut etc.

    They're probably not making much now but will be hoping for a sales boom at this price which will drive their costs down and their profits up over the coming months.

    Even my missus has pre-ordered one from eBuyer!

    For simplicity:

    Google Play Order Links:
    8GB : https://play.google.com/store/device...id=nexus_7_8gb
    16GB : https://play.google.com/store/device...d=nexus_7_16gb

    EBuyer:
    16GB : Asus Nexus 7 Tablet PC - Tablets | Ebuyer.com

    PC World:
    16GB : ASUS Google Nexus 7 Tablet PC - 16 GB at cheap prices | Pcworld

    I am going to call the local PC World to see if they will reserve for launch day then decide where to preorder from.
    EBuyer would be good but their delivery sucks up here and it looks like neither Scan or Overclockers have it.

    Not really, you can change the brightness and colour of the background. I use sepia during the day to remove the glare and at night white text of black which is much easier on the eyes. Remember with a tablet you can read after the sun goes down without a torch unlike un-illuminated e-ink (I know you can get clip on lights etc for a Kindle) I was reading books on my S2 this way via Kindle app and Aldiko which is also a wonderful app.

    I got the wife a Kobo touch and whilst the e-ink screen is a joy to read from as nice as paper in fact you do suffer from no light source so a tablet/phone is preferably if you're doing something like camping....

    Hmmm keep getting tempted with the 16GB one now with £10 off at HMV is only £20 dearer than the 8GB from Google play once you add the shipping.
