Google Nexus 7 Review (2013)

When it was introduced last year, the Google Nexus 7 came out of nowhere and shook up the market in more ways than one, to reign supreme in the (budget) Android market. Not only were people impressed by the uber low price point on the Nexus 7, but it was also packing some admirable hardware under the hood to give every dollar attached to it some much-needed justification. One year later, we’re seeing its successor in the 2013 model of the Google Nexus 7 – something that continues the line’s affordable price point, while naturally receiving all of the improvements we’d expect to find...

Ok, so I finally ditched the Big 4 carriers and their 2 year planned obsolence system. Cancelled my Verizon cell phone cell contract & relationship completely. No termination fee since my 2 year contract ended in June. No more monthly fees for talk, text, data. No more forking out money bags to Verizon ($1500 annually). After careful due diligence, decided that NSA subservient cell phone carriers were an unnecessary cost and luxury. Zero smartphone talk plan costs now (after an initial Google Voice setup fee of $20). No cell phone provider/carriers. Instead I’m using the Groove IP app (free) and the new Nexus 7 2 (2013 edition) w/ LTE. Down from $120 monthly via Verizon to $30 month for 2.5 GB 4G LTE via T-Mobile and unlimited data via wifi all on a state of the art 7 inch tablet w/ 323 ppi, 1.5 Quad Core. Upgrading for $4.99 to Groove IP LTe (w/ text msging) for both talk and text. Get a great phablet, Google Voice archiving/transcribing & org options all for $30 per month and unlimited data essentially b/c of the ubiquity of wi-fi in Metro-LA. Saves $1,080 annually. Bluetooth 3/4 makes it a no-brainer, IMHO. No wonder Verizon refuses to activate/certify the Nexus 7. Its the long sought Holy Grail / the “Golden Unicorn” in phablet/cell convergence.

It is the BEST tablet that I had, it's fast responsive cheap and compering with the nexus 10, 7 2012 version and the iPad line, I think that the nexus 7 2013 is the best electronic device B-)
