And Asus remains the only Android tablet manufacturer who makes anything worth buying.

I'm not really in need of a tablet what with my Nexus S and laptop, but what this is offering for ~$200... WHY NOT!?

Pre-ordered the 16gb version. This is so AWESOME!

Great thing this can do is hook up to your t.v. and use a Bluetooth controller for console like experience while still having a very nice portable device. Also the price is amazing.

Will this hurt the iPad? Hard to say as the iPad 3 is still way better but it is also way more expensive. I think for what most people do the Nexus 7 will do everything they want which mostly is video, web, mail, books, and a few games.

I am very happy today. Oh and its an IPS display!!

Wow, this is coming out just when I am looking for a tablet for one of my sons. Looks like he's getting my Iconia A100 now, lol!!

About damn time some ~$200 tablets with real specs start showing up.

I actually picked up the 8GB version. I'll try it out and hand it down to the GF. Maybe by that time there'll be a 16GB + 3G version available.

May I ask where you pre-ordered from?

Thinking about picking one up too. For $200, can't go wrong I think?
