As a geek and regular online-shopaholic, this tablet was on my wish list ever since its launch by Google. Last week, I finally came across a good deal on eBay: unbeatable price, top ebay seller and reliable shipping by DHL. As usual, the purchase was a few clicks away and the shipping from United States took only 3-4 days but delivery was delayed because of the weekend. Damn weekend!
As for most of my purchases, I’m always excited and impatient to grab my new gadgets! Earlier today, instead of waiting for the door-to-door delivery of the parcel which reached Mauritius on Saturday, I rushed to DHL. After paying the amount due for the VAT and processing fees, I walked to office, unboxed the device and got connected to the net through wifi.
Choosing a tablet
You still remember about my recommendations for the Kindle 3 (Read review)? Probably the best value for money ebook reader. And today, as an Android fan, I feel that the Google Nexus 7 wins the tablet battle in every single way!
Ever since my quest for a tablet, I was amazed by what Google was offering in terms of Android and their flagship devices, the Google Nexus series. And to tell you the truth, I’m not really an apple fan. The Google Nexus 7, which is also the second Android-powered device I acquired this year, has impressed me till now. I have spend endless hours reading reviews and viewing youtube videos. I would advise you to do the same if you are planning to grab a tablet.
For the curious ones;
I feel that this gorgeous Nexus 7 will really motivate me to work on an android app for my personal project, mauritiusloto.com. Something else which is on my mind right now: NFC Tag. I will also be trying games on the new tablet to have a look at the graphics, which looks promising. And finally (for now), upgrade to the latest Android 4.2.1
Keep tuned for more updates!
