The most critical point, IMHO, there is no microSD slot. Period.

Anyhow, ALL your links, except MacMall which I have some issues with them, are out of stock! Good for Jelly Bean!

Hello Bun,

Agreed ! This same thing stirred me from the Kindle Fire.
However, there are two things to consider:

1> According to this http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/blog/2012/jul/13/google-nexus-7-review?newsfeed=true
The Nexus 7 comes with 8GB or 16GB of onboard storage. You can't add any more to the device itself. No USB ports for Flash drives; no SD card slots; no HDMI out. What is Google playing at?Asus has indicated to me that this was Google's idea; that what it wants is for everyone to use its services in the cloud. This would be great, and clever, if everyone was guaranteed excellent high-speed broadband connectivity everywhere.

Obviously, there is a reason for any big decision. Perhaps someday, local storage is the thing of the past. I belong to the much older generation, and we still prefer to use cash rather than credit card. No cash, no spending, period. But the main stream are all on the credit band wagon.

2> The major factor, again in my opinion, is the quality & service & performance from name brand. The hassle of DOA or short life is minimized. Hence, iPad is popular even at high price, as everything just works and lasts.

So, the debate continues on. One thing is certain, that the Nexus is the hottest potatoes at the moment. Mainly for pre-order only. Additional reviews are :

I complaint about the SD slot just because I love to whine :) . To the contrary, today, the whole day when i was in my office is trying to get one, tried from 830 am, thru lunch, and till 5 pm, and gave up. Maybe I am not sure which one to get/order and where to get it from, 8G save 50$, but if you need space that is very annoying. And 16G cost $249 + shipping 14$ + tax 22$ (est) = 285$. And all other place, cost $249, say GameStop or Sams. This is going to dig deep into my tablet 'research' funding :) . I will, just, wait.
