And we have. Unless you are philosophically opposed to a Google-branded tablet ('cos, frankly, all Android tablets have the same amount of information-theft built into them - it's just easier to forget about it when not holding a Google tab...), there is really no reason to pick up a Kobo Arc instead, unless it's the only thing available in your area.

EDIT: Hmm. Or maybe not, at least if you can't order directly from Google Play, where it's $209 (premium for being in Canada, of course, despite the CAD hovering within $0.05 of parity with the USD for the last several years - both over and under, usually over!) or find it in a small shop somewhere... Best Buy, Future Shop, and Staples (the only big stores up here that seem to carry it) all have it at $239 for the 16GB (and $269 for the 32GB).
