Google's Nexus 7 tablet is here: What do you think? (poll)

Most of the rumors about a 7-inch Android 4.1 tablet selling for $200 turned out to be true today, but will Google's first tablet impress?

Is the Nexus 7 sexy?

Are you impressed by Google's new Nexus 7 tablet?



The Nexus 7 has landed.

It turns out most of the rumors about a $200 7-inch Android 4.1 tablet from Google were true. The slate was unveiled during the Google I/O keynote this morning and like we expected, it's made by Asus and packs a front-facing camera, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi.

Google touts the potential of the Nexus 7 to tap its Play store for gaming, movies, apps, e-books, and magazines.

Google says its latest Pavlovian drool-inducer from the Nexus family will ship in July.

Those are the facts so far, but frankly, they aren't worth a damn. What matters is what you think. Will you buy a Nexus 7 tablet? Has Google just blown Amazon's Kindle Fire out of the water? Or is this new device still too little, and perhaps too late in a world where the iPad continues to be the king of touch-screen hill?
