The N7 will be my first tablet. I've only owned desktop PCs with Windows. When I finally got a smartphone, android blew me away. A tiny, portable computer that fits in my hand, easy to figure out and meets 99% of my computing needs on a daily basis? What's not to love. The Nexus 7 really wows me because it has a stylish design that is sexy rather than blocky and utilitarian. I love that it is made by google (ok, asus) so that I know it will start working right out of the box. (With OEM, I get the impression it's a case of YMMV.) Long battery life that's perfect for long car rides with the kids. The Tegra and high screen resolution impress me. The front facing camera - love that it has this (and the lack of it on Kindle & Nook kept me away from those) and can't wait to try out portable Skype.
