NOV 29 UPDATE:
Google just announced upgraded Nexus 7 tablets to be available on Nov 13. The 8GB model will probably be discontinued and you will get a 16GB Nexus 7 for the amount you pay for an 8GB model now. You will be able to get a 32GB Nexus 7 for the price of the current 16GB model.
My initial review was a Nexus 7 vs. the first generation Kindle Fire and the Nexus was a clear winner. I have now updated my review for the Fire HD. It's a close call but the Nexus' 4-core CPU and its pure Android, more open makeup make it my preferred 7-incher. However, the rest of my family prefers the Fire HD because it's such a great dedicated (Amazon) media consumption pad.
We've been using a Kindle Fire since September 2011 (pre-ordered) and I am happy we ordered ours. Soon after purchase it was adopted by our daughter. She is using it to draw and paint, she watches Netflix for Kids on it, she learned how to search Youtube for arts and crafts 'how to' videos and she plays (mostly free) games from Amazon's Appstore. The Fire wasn't a full-feature tablet when it launched but we overlooked its hardware shortcomings, its off-mainstream Android and its locking us out Google's much larger app store because the price was right and because the 7" screen size made it lighter and more portable than the 'full size' 10.1" alternatives. We are still happy with our Fire but we are happier with Nexus 7, our second 7" tablet.
Because Nexus 7 and Amazon's Kindle are both Android tablets very similar in screen size that sell for the same price, I am going to compare the two while I write about my experience with Nexus 7.Read more ›

◉ Powerful processor
◉ All connections included (Wifi, Bluetooth, Near Field Communication (NFC).
◉ Standard install of Android means you can customize it as YOU wish to, and all native Android apps are available.
◉ Rich screen density, crisp and bright.
◉ Light, small, thin.
◉ Plenty of RAM for smooth operation.
◎ No MicroSD card slot, so if you need more storage the 16gb model might be better for you, but then there is Google Drive to hold you stuff as well, so it's not that big of a deal. It is a big deal for playing content on the go however, with no 3G/4G you will be stuck with whatever you can fit on that 8 GB, and that can be pretty limited at times.Read more ›
-Great size, it's not too big, but you can still easily view movies and use apps made for a big screen like Fruit Ninja.
-Adobe Flash Support (Requires some hacking)
-Very fast, it has a really good quad core processor. There is zero lag.
-Jellybean has a wide range of high quality features including voice recognition that now works offline.
-Google Now is way better than Siri and it's extremely useful
-Android is so much more customizable than iOS.
-It's three virtual buttons on the bottom allow for easy and fast navigation around the device.
-Multitasking is beautiful and much more immersive. Not even comparable to iOS.
-Has good battery life even when using GPS
-Thanks to free apps, this is a very powerful GPS that will work better than any one from the store.
-No rear camera, I don't think tablets really need them, but it would've been a nice feature
-Fragile glass on screen, doesn't scratch easily, but it breaks easily
-Crappy speaker, although all tablets have crappy speakers
-Sometimes I hit the power button instead of the volume rocker because they feel the same and they are right next to each other
-No Micro SD card slot
Nexus 7 vs. Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7 inch model):
The Nexus 7 has a better screen and processor than the Galaxy Tab 2, however it does have some advantages over the Nexus 7.
1. It has a rear camera.
2. It has a built in IR blaster for use as a universal remote.
3. It has a micro SD card slot for a micro SD card up to 32 GB.Read more ›
