I am getting nasty screen flicker with 4.2, it seems almost like living virus Getting worse each day??.. BT photo transfer has quit and battery life is getting worse by the day. Google has to get on this. However my December calender is fine. I don't know if it is just the 32GB models, but I am reading ALL.
SO DON'T UPGRADE TO 4.2 IF YOU HAVE NOT YET.

My new Nexus 7 was saved by this case, it is a bit ugly and weighs 108 grams, but my tablet was knocked of the kitchen counter and hit the hardwood floor.
Not a bit of a problem, so if you don't have a case, and you want one that is tested from counter height, I would say this one will do. I actually have the orange one, which looks like a dull pumpkin, but it saves N7 lives. It is so ugly it is only $9.95 instead of $19.95. lol
I think I would look at the grey one

Nexus 10 fixes 1 of its 3 biggest mistakes,
http://www.talkandroid.com/138456-samsung-korea-promo-reveals-64gb-nexus-10/

Now it just needs to add SD (You think they would have learned that on N7, one of the main reasons Android has gained 17% on Apple} and lower $50 on price and it will kill the ipad. The Exite 10 is selling for $299 in Costco, Asus 300 selling for $329, Nexus 10 needs to be based at $349, Retina doesn`t mean much if no HD apps
And JB and ICS are not that much different on a fast slate, Google Now and a couple trick ponies not enough-
I was all exited about JB until I got it, much rather have S Pen, Split screen, the Samsung Ex. chips are nice and fast with that 2 gb ram.

Still cant touch the 21 extra features of this, people are selling their retinas to buy this for features and speed.
It is very cool in the video screen. All the videos are live At the same time In their little widgets not just a static stills $499

Sir MP
U will not believe this.
My new 8gb N7 required a hard button reset this morning,
I returned it tonight to Staples, I had just talked to Office Depot and they had lowered the 16gb down to $199. So the Staples lady went in the back and rang it up. It was 32gb.
So I gave her the extra $50 and brought home a new 32gb N7, $249+tax. Total $266.40 minus $20 In coupons ($246.40 ) so $35 less then the 16gb I ordered and refused last summer.

What a strange world lol (:-)
I didnt want a 3g since I tether from my note which is 4g and LTE and would be slower.
I think the 3g will be $70 or $50? more. Still less then minipad, which shadow boxes out 16/9 movies smaller the Fire HD and N7. Which both have better dpi then Apple.
Hope all is well down under.
Going to be closer to you soon. Taking cruise from Chile down around and back to Rio.
Cheers...

it's a real shame Marware never made a Nexus 7 case. I just bought one for my ipad 3, I ordered it from walmart.com, I liked it so much that I went to the marware site assuming they had cases for the nexus 7, and nothing, so I went to their facebook page, and you can see the nexus 7 questions all over their page, and their response "we have no plans for a nexus 7 case"

Thanks buddy' err' Sir Buddy,
Forgot about about that magnet feature.
Ordered a soft gel to keep it inside my little keyboard USB case.
Bought it Just for car or boring gatherings, small enough to hide.
It is really not that much bigger then my baby note. But plenty of extra real estate, but after couple hours on it, I quickly determined that it is a specialty item. Not a 10 replacement.
I have to use a pen to type, then of course this little keyboard, that doubles as a extra protective case. So I will enjoy it, but mostly won't place very many hours of use.
I was kind of surprised why strange the new Fire HD footprint was compared to the N7. The Fire is just weirdly shaped.
Have you rooted and them saved a ROM for updates?
Cheers
I don't see the mini pad being all that', same with the Surface RT. Seems they are "tweeners of some sort" not earth shattering.
