Anyone know whats going on with shipping at the moment... (From Google Play)
Google have just billed me for my Nexus7 so with any luck that means it's en route ! No update on the Google Play website as of yet though?
eBuyer definitely shipping - the missus got hers on Friday. It's so beautiful...
Anyone doing free trials of these to schools?
My order is now going to have to wait...all the spare money is going to repairing the guttering on the house...and the removal of the old guttering as it seems to be asbestos :(
On the bright side its my birthday in September so i might get one with my birthday money...if I get any and the freezer will last until after christmas
Found out yesterday that an admin error means I'll be getting a couple hundred quid in unpaid annual leave next month - it was meant to be! :D
Mine arrived today and the touchscreen didn't work :'( The support 'specialist' couldn't believe it! Just ask @Domino how epic the actual unboxing/support expeience actually was actually.
Mine arrived tonight and no technical issues with it so far thankfully! It's all working as expected.
It's the first android device I've owned so it's been a bit of a learning curve but in general I'm really impressed with it. The build quality/finish of the device is really good (not quite up there with the ipad but much better than similarly price tablets) and the screen is vibrant and crisp too. It's a steal for the money when you consider the price and the specs!
I cant quite decide on whether the 7" form factor is the way to go or a step backward? On the one hand it's widescreen form factor is great for watching movies, makes it narrow enough to fit in a jacket pocket (just!) and means you can confortably hold it with one hand which is something that could bever be said of the ipad. However, it does sometimes feel slightly too small/narrow when trying to view webpages (especially in portrait mode) and the on screen keyboard is too narrow to be able to type comfortably on in landscape mode (which is something I found to be quite effective on my ipad).
It's tricky for me to pass judgement on Android 4.0 Jelly Bean as I've never used Android before but it seems to be at least on a par with IOS in my opinion. The fact you can simply plug it into your computer to copy across files/etc and don't have to deal with the hell that is itunes is awesome! The interface is now a lot smoother than it used to be but there's still occasionally noticeable lag when loading/scrolling up and down webpages that simply doesn't happen with IOS. It's not really a problem as such but it's disappointing given all the headlines about 'project butter' that they haven't managed to banish the lag completely.
Overall all though it's an epic device (especially for the price) and I can't see anyone who buys it being disappointed :cool:
Yipeeeee... Got a packet from TNT today it's either my falconery trackers or the nexus...
