    You're supposed to include a source if you're going to create a topic in the News section.

    Yeah, you really need to go back and fix this up. Source, maybe some more information, etc.

    Moving on. With Google and Microsoft making big pushes against Apple, the tablet market is just getting more and more interesting. However, I'm sad to see that they haven't yet confirmed if this Nexus (like its namesake) comes with a free Captain Kirk inside.

    To go with the theme, a copy of Sonic Generations will also be included.

    no sd slot, but there is a usb slot, so i would guess a usb microstick could be used perhaps

    Everything has GPS nowadays. And a lot of Google services use GPS, so of course it's going to have it.

    seeying it runs the latest android, it should also work with normal usb's just because it has host controlling nowadays, so you get a special cable, and you can hook up any usb pheriphial, which includes usb storage devices ^^

    IF the hardware supports it ofcourse, and i think it will.

    Ever use Google maps and press the my location button, or find directions to/from your location?

    When you are on Wifi or LAN it uses your IP address traceroutes among other specialized algorythms to determine your location.

    If you are using a wireless data network like 2G, Edge, 3G, 4G, or 4GLTE, you need a GPS module to determine location.

    There are other things that cell phone addicts use their location for like that Four Square thing. Phone Phreaks, bless their overpaying hearts.

    No 3g and no back camera. Specs going for it is 7", tegra 3, and timely updates. If you could live with using cloud services I think this tablet is a good buy.

    I was really hoping there would be an SD card port...but the specs and the price are way too good to pass up.
