The Nexus 7 is only missing one thing

The new Nexus 7 from Google is a lot of tablet for $200. Is it as good as the iPad 3? Well, not exactly, but it’s also half the price. I took delivery of a 16GB model today (which bumps the price up to $250) and I’m duly impressed with its specs, build quality and overall feel in my fist few hours of using it. Early reviews (CNet, Engadget, Verge) similarly sing its praises. It’s the first “pure Google” tab (hence the “Nexus” moniker), it’s the best $200 tab, its fast and responsive (courtesy of its quad-core Tegra 3 processor,) yadda. And all of it is true, especially the bit about it being pure Google — no one dislikes Android skins more than I do — plus the N7 enjoys the distinction of being the first tablet running Android 4.1 “Jellybean,” the smoothest and slickest build of Android yet.
