The Google Nexus 7 came out this week. I got mine yesterday and it indeed looks impressive. The screen is just amazing and does seem pretty snappy. No big interface changes from what I can tell at this point.
Early reports are that the battery life is not quite as good as advertised. Given the eight-core processor and all those pixels to push, that would not surprise me. However, if you are looking for a good low cost tablet to read your books, read your e-mails, or surf the web give this tablet a look. At $229 for the base model, it is hard to ignore.
