Tech OverloadNexus 7
I received my Nexus 7 today. Impulse buy of all times. I have and iPad and a Kindle Fire so I really don't need to have another tablet for looking at stuff. I have been playing around with developing for the Android Market so I guess that is as good a reason as any to plunk down the hard earned stuff.
I have a two year old version of the HTC EVO running android but it isn't anywhere near running the current Android software so in that vein I hope that the Nexus 7 being labeled and sold as a Google Tablet means that it will get the upgrades as they happen rather then when the phone companies get around to it.
First impressions is that it is lighter than the Kindle Fire and the screen is a bit higher resolution. And it is pretty fast. I am surprised that while it has a built in front facing camera there is no Camera App included. I also haven't found any apps that work in landscape mode. This may just be a need to read the manual. More later.
Update. The rotation can be locked in portrait mode from the notification drop down. The forward facing camera is really only good for self portraits and for video chatting. Still it does have one more camera than the Kindle Fire.
