Why would I even consider this piece of trash? No 3G means I don't care how cheap it is! Sorry big G, a big pass on this one. Will stick to Samsung Galaxy tab 10.1.

No 3G no sale, it's a simple as that.
If I wanted a device like the nexus 7 I would have purchased a kindle Fire.
Unfortunately the iPad is still king.
Yes it's cheap and the spec tells the story, poor screen, no hi res camera, very little storage, no GSM.
In all it's not happening.

I'm sure Asus probably offered better terms than Samsung and besides the latter has a dangerous monopoly over the android eco-system already.

To be honest I don't even know what is the need for poor quality camera in tablet, since everyone has phone with better camera anyway. I have galazy tab and I have never used the camera, and because of Samsungs totally crappy updating polizy I'm changing to this as soon as it's availeable.
