I’m totally geeking out!!! I like that it’s not as big as others, I think 7 inches is the sweet spot for tablets, in terms of sizes. At only 8k, I can totally see myself buying one of these bad boys. I’m sorta torn between buying this one or waiting it out til they come up with a 3G version. Basta, I cannot wait until the Google Nexus tab makes it here on the PH, I’d be all over the $245 version like white on rice!
