They're supposed to be shipping this week. Considering ordering mine from google today. Time to put my kindle fire up for sale before this thing is in full swing and it's not worth jack.

I'm thinking of getting either the Galaxy Note 2 or an S III. I'm currently awaiting for the keynote from Apple about their iPhone 5 to see if maybe it's still worth going with Apple. But I've been leaning on Android for a while now and it's basically between the SIII or Note 2. (except that rumors have it that the Note 2 will be out at the end of the year or beginning of next year for the US).

nexus 7 + gs3 = im in android fanboy heaven

my only gripe w/ the 7 is that the colors are noticeably dull compared to the gs3. not to the point where its a problem, but if you hold them side by side, you notice immediately.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 will utilize the "S pen" (stylus) that the Note 2 will have. You can make annotations within various apps, and lets say you hover the "S Pen" over the screen (not touching), you can check the contents of a folder and what not. Seems they're making the stylus a bit more creative and useful.

There's mods out there to improve the display. Check out XDA.

Plus I believe there's something up with their firmware for the screen that they are trying to fix

Quote:
There is about a 25 percent compression of bright image content, which is quite substantial. This holds for both the Gallery Viewer and the Chrome Browser. On some cheap displays this is done intentionally by the manufacturer because the compression actually makes them appear artificially bright. Here I think it's probably just incompetence by the manufacturer, which is too bad because they messed up a really nice display. Depending on the display firmware this may or may not be correctable with a software update. These tests were made under Android 4.1.1.

The Nexus 7 has a high quality display, they just really messed up the factory calibration. This affects all displayed images, but it is most noticeable on any form of photographic image, including videos, because the color and intensity mixtures are visually critical for them to look right. The analogy of an over exposed photo is a good one. For high contrast software generated text and graphics the display will look fine.

In short, the display produces washed out images and colors in spite of the fact that it has a display with excellent color saturation and contrast.

It's only $200

Can you get that xfinity app to control your tv on it?
