Default Nexus 7 vs. Galaxy Tab 2.0 7"

I'm thinking of getting am Android tablet after a long absence from using Android (terrible experiences with some MyTouch 4G's turned me away). Anyways, I'm torn between these two tablets. I'm going tonlistnwhat I view as advantages and disadvantages of each and would like input on which you all think is right for me.

My planned uses are mainly web browsing, email, playing games, and watching movies while traveling. Movies is one of the big pluses for the Samsung. With expandable memory, I can just load up ad cards with movies and pop them in, so I can have a much better movie selection with me on the go. Also, I love using my wife's iPad as a remote for the things that it had apps for, so being able to expand upon that with the samsungs ir blaster is another big plus for it.

Honestly, either one is my second choice, I want a Tab 7.7 but it is too expensive cause of the wireless in it.

Nexus 7
Pros:
Quick updates and support, better looking design. Vanilla Android.
Cons:
No expandable memory, no rear camera (dont plan on using it often, but nice to have for QR codes, etc.), no IR blaster for remote functionality.

Tab 2.0 7"
Pros: expandable memory, rear camera, IR blaster
Cons: not a nexus.
