Nexus 7

Google is expanding Play Store availability of its devices today by bringing the Nexus 7 to Korea directly. Sure the Nexus 7 has been out for some time now, but that doesn't mean its not still one of the best options when it comes to the 7-inch form factor. And any time that you can buy Google's products directly from them rather than a third party retailer is a bonus. Korea will have access to both 16 and 32GB versions, but there's no indication (although we're not great at reading Korean) that there's a mobile data version right at this moment.

Let's hope that Google continues this trend of bringing the Play Store -- and Nexus devices as a whole -- to more countries.

The Nexus 7 is one of the most overrated tablets out there, it's slow and glitchy. It took me two agonizing replacements before I finally got a good unit, Sold mine after 2 months of use for a Pipo M9 and guess what, for $250 it completely thrashes the Nexus with an astounding 18,200 Antutu score.

Wow. You sure are unlucky. Or this isn't true. My Nexus 7 is blazing fast compared to other 7" tablets. And we all know benchmarks mean nothing.

Beep. Troll detected.

Troll? yeah right... well probably you cant relate that much since you are contented with the Tegra 3's performance which is high end- ish to your standards...lol....Nexus 7 issues like touchscreen glitches ( moving by itself) are widespread, and that dreaded washed out screen. ugh. Unluckily for me, I had them both....Benchmarks mean nothing? wow you surely are quite uninformed ... a 3K difference in Antutu is quite noticeable in graphics intensive games just so you know.

I run a kernel that allows me to drop it to dual core mode. It wrecks the benchmarks terribly but guess what, real world performance (including gaming) I don't even notice a difference (but I do notice a huge gain in battery life).
