Nexus 7 first impressions

What an impressive device to say the least.  When it comes to speed this little 7 inch tablet almost cannot be beat.  In addition, after a few hours of use the battery is yet to waiver.  When you look at the reviews of this tablet online and you actually get a chance to use it for yourself — you begin to see why there is such a large uproar surrounding this device.  Google and ASUS have certainly drafted a winner here.  Despite the shipping issues, many preorders have gone to their respective homes and once opened it is a hard device to put down.

I stumbled upon a comment on a blog post where one Apple fan commented incorrectly that the Google Nexus 7 is running a phone operating system.  Ice Cream Sandwich and Jellybean alike are designed to be optimized for tablet or handset use, making one operating system great for all resolutions and screen sizes. 

Bottom line: This is an excellent media consumption device and it gets my full seal of approval.  Honestly, if you go Android there is no other way to go than Nexus.  Also, if you can read this then the Nexus 7 must be decent at handling blog posts.
