Get the TF700. Asus is the top manufacturer in updating Android versions so JB will be on it INSANELY quickly. (it might even ship with JB at this point, idk) The Nexus 7 is awesome, but the TF-700 is way better.

awesome. thank you. i pretty sure im convinced. i read that TF700 with get ICS out of the box. my buddy has the prime and he has ICS on it already. thats why i have been thinking about one. it will be a good first android device.

i thought about an ipad only so i could transfer my music from my phone to the tablet through iCloud but but but i messed around with my buddies TFP and i was hooked. i dont need a larger iphone.

depends on your use. if you just want it for news reading, reading, light media.. that kinda stuff, then the nexus is the definite way to go. i

f you want games, heavy media usage, HDMI out, tons of ports to connect things, work/school usage and the ability to have a full sized keyboard for doc making, then you need to go with the transformer.

either way, they are built by the same company, ASUS which is known for good quality stuff and IMO the best android tablet maker right now as far as bang for the buck. The difference is more in what YOU want it for than the device itself. Dont waste your money on the transformer if its just light use stuff.. you could buy 2 nexus tablets (makes a great gift for the GF that reads or lives on youtube) for the cost of 1 transformer

The nexus and the transformer are so similar hardware wise, buying the nexus for 4.1 JB would be pointless. I have a feeling ASUS is going to be very quick out the door with the 4.1 updates for the transformer because of that.

No prob. :)
Yeah, it'll get ICS out of the box, and Asus is really speedy with updates. In fact, I believe the T-Prime came with Honeycomb out of the box, but Asus updated it to ICS so quickly I didn't even know it until a few weeks ago. Definitely a winner imo.

I'm wondering the same... and considering buying both (N7 + TF700)... : )

One for the "light reading" and one for the more productive side..

There's a bunch of stuff weird on this article, like a 32gb model? And where does it say anything about $25 on Google Wallet? It's $25 at Google Play, just like Google's website...
