In the service they told me that the mother board is dead....but the tablet didnt start at all after the service??? Were they lying? Could the charging boeard is problem? How can I check up? The battery part is heating during charging but nothing on the screen and doesnt starts.

Can anyone tell me if the back comes off the nexus 7? And where the sim card goes? How do you recharge it so I'm not using all the data on my phone from Wi-Fi?

Dear Reviewer,
For Indians, the connectivity is not possible to meet via only WiFi. We rely on 3G more so a SIM slot is what expected. Hope it will be launched soon. As of now the 16GB version is what I saw first in Play Store today.

I tether mine through a WiFi hotspot from my RAZR I, or even better via Bluetooth which gives better battery life. Instant mobile broadband on the nexus 7

GSM arena Review says nexus 7 has wifi direct and hot spot feature. Does it really have these features? Is it typo error?

How can't you see anyone choosing another tablet - where do you have 3g here? Once you get out of home you're disconnected which makes a device like this loosing 90% of its functionality.

Google should have thought about providing a little more expensive version also but with cellular connectivity.

Use Airdroid or something similar to get files on and off it from whatever device on your network.

Also get an OTG cable (coupla £s/$s), then able to plug your external hdd's into it (was watching an HD film (6.8GB file in NTFS) from my 500GB external drive no probs last night)...
