Anyone know anything about the Google Nexus 7?


Yes, it's on the desk here as I've just updated the Swype beta on it.
It's black with a matt silver frame and ... er ... does stuff.

Most reviews seem to think it's currently the best bang for buck. The range of free apps for Android is astounding - I got a 15 Google Play voucher with my Nexus several months ago - still got 14 left (though to be fair I've probably got about 5 worth of apps I'd already bought for my phone - yes, I can use them on all our Android devices).

By the by, my friend got a Kindle Fire for his wife but when they found how pinioned it was to Amazon they sent it back and got a Nexus 7 instead.

The google tablet does seem to be getting rave reviews, and is about 80 quid cheaper than the iPad.

It's the same thing, though I didn't know Asus were marketing it separately as well. The 'Google' Nexus 7 has Asus on the back, so it was never a secret who makes it, but of course it's subsidised by Google (allegedly).
Otoh the Google Nexus 10 is being made by Samsung I think.

Anyone looking to buy a 10" Android tablet should check the current price of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. Its available at 238 from John Lewis and you get 50 cash back from Samsung. The Amazon price is fluctuating crazily - yesterday it went from 228 to 270 back to 258 finally settling at 238 depending on the colour %) %)
