Asus lives up to it's reputation of making excellent devices. The screen is very clear too. The best way to put this is "It's an Asus". You can't go wrong with this.

If you've spent any time at all trying to make an app, you will know that it is not easy. Tor renting stuff down is is stealing and you are discouraging app developers from making apes. This also causes companies to adopt horrid DRM practices.

In short, don't pirate apps - that's not good for anyone.


The answer to your other question, whether you can install third party apps, is yes

I own an 8GB Nexus 7 model and can confirm that using a USB OTG cable and the android app Nexus Media Importer (which costs about a dollar on the market and does NOT require rooting), lets you hook up a flash drive to the device so you can stream movies, music off it. My 8gb Nexus 7 currently is streaming movies off of a 32gb memory stick - not bad for a couple of dollars for the cable and media importer app. You can even plug in a joypad that has a usb attachment on it to play games on it. Haven't tried them all, but I know asphalt 7 works fine as do quite a few other games.

The only slight downside is that you cannot write to the flash stick, so you can't install apps or write documents, etc to the stick.

I'm hoping that Google will announce the 32GB + 3G version together with the LG Optimus G Nexus at the end of this month.

Please let me know if you can use this device for b/t tethering from a java device. I could use the Samsung galaxy Tab (SIM version) and it gave me the option to use internet from my phone.
The same did not come up on my Sony tablet S

Please assist
