Holy cow! I just opened the box and I figured I should write down my first impressions of the device. And "Holy Cow!" is the first thing that comes to mind. (Actually it was "Holy $hit!, but I figure I should keep it clean...) This device is ridiculously slick. The form factor is awesome. The minimal bezel actually takes a little getting used to because it's so thin. But from an aesthetics standpoint, this device is beautiful (I own the white one). And it's super thin yet feels really well made. When you turn on the device, you see a great screen. I've read some complaints about a yellowish and/or dim screen, but mine looks bright and sharp. The UI is pretty benign and there is very little bloat on the device. While I intend to root it at some point, I think most people will be very happy with a stock experience. I have spent less than 1 hour with the tablet, so I'm sure I'll encounter problems with it, but my first impressions are really, really good. And I've used plenty of tablets over the years, most recently a 2012 Nexus 7 and Asus Transformer Prime. While those are now a little outdated, I've owned a Nexus 10, a Note 10.1, a Transformer Infinity, a Tab 3 (7"), among others, so I've had my fair share of tablets. And the G Pad absolutely blows them all out of the water right now. I'll report more as I spend more time with the device.
