    I can't seem to find it in any settings so I would venture to say no.

    Same man. Id always thought a vibrator (lol) would be there as standard on any android device.
    Im a big fan of haptic. Especially when typing but i probably wont be doing much typing on the tab :beer:

    Haptic feedback is missing in the Nexus, unfortunately...

    I found that odd as well at first, the audible clicks is all you get.

    I'll confirm for you that both the 2012 and 2013 do not have avibrator so there is no haptic feedback.:(

    If the haptic feedback is really important to you, there is an inexpensive tablet out there that has it. (The Hisense Sero 7 Pro) It is basically a 2012 Nexus 7, but with the addition of the SD slot, a rear camera, HDMI output, haptic feedback, and the headset socket works like it should. I've got one, and I like it better than the Nexus. Full list price is $149 at WalMart. Some stores might still sell it for $129.

    Thanks mate. i already got the nexus though and specifically wanted a nexus because although its cheap, it should be update/rom supported for a long time :thumbup:

    I have some mixed emotions about the updates. If the device works good, out of the box, and they are constantly having strange problems with the updates, Why would I care?

    In case you didn't catch that, I'm NOT updating my Nexus. I think it works good enough already. (If it already works, DON'T fix it.)

    Yeah i know what you mean mate but i used my nephews nexus 7 on (was it 4.1.2)? And it was kinda crap. 4.3 was a big improvement and 4.4 seems like another big improvement to me. Just wish it had included Android Run Time
