    With them buying up companies in the supply chain it wont be long before the economies of scale kick surely?

    Well, this was leaked today. Looks a bit square to me but it is just a crappy picture.

    Rooted it in 30 mins, directions here, it was pretty painless apart from having to use non-standard usb drivers as I'm running 64 bit windows 7

    Now to see if I can get Amazon marketplace on it :)

    The Guardian reviewer got a bit obsessed over the lack of landscape homescreen icons. They seemed to like it other than that, well apart from some questions about the battery, and lack of storage/connectivity/non-US music cloud stuff. Actually they spend a lot of time moaning considering they still gave it 4 stars in the end.

    Yep, the home widget and application screens don't rotate, but the google home screen does.

    I really don't see what that's such a big deal.

    It would annoy me intensely to have to switch orientations whenever I went back to the home screen - it does even on the iPhone, and apps on that are mostly portrait.

    i want to get this. But just like the new ipad before it, everytime I am about buy it, I stop and think: surely the next version will be better. will have more memory and faster processor. So I never end up buying any tablet. must stop doing this. will buy nexus 7. i prefer this size. ipad is too big (and I dont like apple, anyway) so is the samsung 8.9. this is more my size.

    Word is that the manufacturer, Acer, will release their own version that includes HDMI and an SD card slot. Not sure how long of a lead they're contracted to give to Google though. It's happened before with the N1/Desire twins, though almost nothing changed between those two.

    I believe you can hook up a usb stick so storage is not going to be an issue and the HDMI thing I had on my old LG O2x..I think I used it 2 or 3 times.

    It's a really odd omission, can't work out the logic of forcing that on people tbh.

    Just ordered myself the 8GB model direct from Google, £169 with P+P. The £15 of apps they give you will come in handy :D

    whats the big deal with HDMI? Who the hell wants to stream whatever they have from the tablet to their TV? Can't see the fuss. for me this tablet will surf the net. download a few app games and watch movies/tv series on way to work. nothing more.

    Streaming YouTube to my TV is something I've always wanted to be able to do.

    Still, Apple will no doubt soon be along to "invent" the 7" tablet.

    Be hilarious if they got sued to fuck as a result :D

    I stream the footy from my phone to the TV,although I choke at paying Sky for anything it's well cheaper than any other way.(other than buggering about with P2P streams et al)
