@marvin99, I think it's to get more people to use cloud storage but true not providing micro-SD feature was a mistake.

@dylan, Good to hear that the features are almost similar to that of ipad. But how do you compare the specs of Nexus 7 with Microsoft surface?

This has less to do with co-developing than custom-ordering, but it's the same strategy to me, that is, playing one OEM against another. It's just that a different company kowtows every year. The Nexus 7 is a much more restrictive Android device than any other. According to Brian Klug of Anandtech, not only did Google omit microSD expansion (~$40 for 64GB card), they killed USB mass storage, too. USB-OTG is strictly for keyboards and such. Therefore you're locked into this "tablet built for GooglePlay", in their own words. It's like the smart-chip they put inside inkjet printers a few years ago to discourage third-party ink. This is a business model where the device is subsidized by Google, rather than a free gift you seem to think.

It's almost perfect, except for the missing micro-SD slot. I know we are supposed to store everything in the cloud now, but 8 GB is a bit small when you are travelling outside wifi reach.

True...this is the strongest competitor for Amazon's Kindle fire. The price is very attractive and hence this might just possess threats for all other 7" tabs...especially Samsung's Galaxy tab?

According to Google's Rubin 'When it gets sold through the Play store there's no margin, it just basically gets (sold) through.' http://www.knowyourmobile.com/blog/1455823/google_says_theres_no_margin_on_nexus_7.html Google hopes to sell you content and take your personal info to show ads to make money. Basically 'spoiled the market' for other vendors.

Well, it scratches the surface at least on a story of what sounds like an intense but good collaboration. Beats the heck out of what the NYT said the HP/M'soft collaboration on tablets was like!!!

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
