white Nexus 7 + white Moto G ? I think that will make a good set as you will have a good tablet for gaming and stuff and a phone with a good battery life. :D Those together costs less than the Z Ultra. The Z Ultra is also known for... not very good battery life, so having just the Ultra may be a little unpleasant? Just a suggestion. Go for the Z Ultra if it fits your need better :D Edit: G Pad + Moto G would be nice, too. Oh and they are both G devices xD

and it's also locked to amazon apps. This can do google OR amazon. So I rather save the 30$ personally.

Just wish they would release a 3G/LTE version as well. What's the point of having a tablet with WiFi connecticity only when a tab is meant to be portable? And any chance of the tab being released in India, with or without Google Play edition?
