Nexus 7?

I hope this is not off Topic, however I am thinking about a Nexus 7... I was originally holding out for Nook Tablet HD.. I have Nook Glo, iPad 2, Kindle Fire etc.. but want something new and the best.. I also want a 7" screen for reading Magazines and Newspaper's with the Color .. I hear the Nexus 7 with Google Chrome, and all the apps is the next thing to sliced bread.. what are your UNBIASED opinons..
P.S.. I have heard the Nook app for Nexus 7 is a problem..

The Nexus 7 is a great device, and possible the best 7" tablet out there.


But I must admit, the new Nook tablets are looking pretty good.

So it depends on what you want. If you want full android, nexus 7. If you are just going to consume media on it, then a nook tablet or even a fire hd would be great because they have a higher resolution screen.

Personally I'd get a nexus 7 because I'd be able to do more with it. The Nook would have to be rooted to do the same. But again, it all depends what your priority is.

Nook HD has no- web cam,GPS with google maps ,no USB host so you can connect USB devices. NO google play store 500,000 ++ Apps (2nd largest in the world) NO SIDE loading of Apps NO access to other App or book stores.

With the Nexus 7 you have all that + you can expand the memory using a very cheap App $2.99 & a OTG cable so you can connect USB memory sticks,cards or hard drives for unlimited storage to your nexus 7.

NO ROOTING NEEDED

Google play store has lots of apps that are FREE that other App stores like Amazon and B&N charge for.So if you have a device to access the google play store you can save yourself more money.

Amazon $2.99 Bad Piggies HD version

Google play $0.00 Bad Piggies HD version

One issue early on especially is the build quality. I had no such issue with mine personally and therefore could easily recommend a purchase with the features at your fingertips other tablets even costing more don't have.
