My remarks, below, about the BBC iPlayer have now been superseded by the release of a BBC iPlayer app.
My Original Review from August 2012
This Tablet is great!! I've only had it a couple of days, and I cannot recommend it enough.
Firstly, I'm a silver surfer, so not young. I already have an Android HTC Desire S phone, which makes the set-up familiar.
I bought the larger 16GB version, as there is no expansion SD card slot, for £199.99 from, sounds like, what you eat after the pub on a Friday night.
Come on Amazon, I know it competes with the Kindle, but let the punters choose, instead of having this overpriced offering.
I've been waiting for a few months for this Asus Google Nexus 7 tablet to come out, after reading lots of industry reviews and hoping the hype was true, and it is.
As someone else said, it's easier to set up if you already have a Google account. It imported all my contacts, emails, Chrome bookmarks and some of the Apps I had on the phone, Astro file manager and SkyEye, for you astronomers, Google Maps, Google Earth.
To look at the internet or movies or pictures in landscape mode:
Pull down the menu from the top with your finger and touch the circling arrows around a rectangle symbol.
Yes you can watch BBC iPlayer, using the Nexus 7
1. Using the Nexus 7 download the Firefox Beta Browser from Google Play.
2. From inside Firefox Beta using your Nexus 7 find, download and install both these files.

Check any internet or magazine review and you will find that this is a well made, competent product which Google (or Asus, who are technically the manufacturer) can rightly be proud of. It's powered by quad-core 1.3Ghz processor which is as good as anything available, and runs the very latest version of Android (4.1 "Jellybean") which will be familiar to any users of previous versions, but now includes "Google Now" as a rival to Apple's "Siri".
Inevitably people will want comparison to the i-pad, or even other Android devices such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab, and it would be easy to rattle on for paragraphs, but I'll try and make this concise.... so:
This is a 7" tablet, so technically has a screen about half the size of an i-pad or Galaxy Tab 10.1. A direct comparison is unfair, it's designed to slip into a bag or even a pocket... try doing that with a full size tablet.Read more ›
But be warned. They have a hardware fault currently in a high proportion of these units. The screen turns off and will not turn back on without turning off and back on. The screen will stop working at any point, surfing, movies, gaming anything.
Google service department is excellent and they will try to do a hardware reset, in my case this did not work. I then ordered a new unit from google, they send a replacement unit whilst you have the other, this will get authorised against your card but not charged unless you do not send the old unit back.
Performance is superb. Mass Effect, Dead Space and other Tegra 3 games run without a hitch and fast.
Netflix works brilliantly, spend more time watching this in bed than TV.
Google play store is excellent and the range of apps, books is huge (kindle app runs fine).
Chrome is excellent, syncing my iphone, laptop and now nexus.
I'm glad I bought it even though it failed to work first time.
Brilliant alrounder and a brilliant price.
