Are these any good for reading digital newspapers or is the screen too small. Seems to me you will be scrolling in and out all the time.

I'd wait till the new version comes out...

@beergoggles, a bit small yea. 10" tablet is better for that. Nexus 10 in particular due to the good screen resolution.

Google currents is a free app for newspapers. Has Telegraph and Guardian on and other stuff. Its optimised for reading and works pretty well on Nexus 7. The Nexus is pretty good in general. You'll use it quite a lot!

How can Nexus Wifi cost more than FonePad? It has to go down sorry. Not voting.

Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A9 vs single core 1.2 GHz. Thats why. Simples.

The fonepad has an Intel atom chip. Not compatible with lots of apps and games. Good for battery life but that's about it. Nexus 7 is excellent and really excels in games.

not in stock at my local store, only for 'pay and collect' which needs me to pay online so won't be able to use the voucher.
any way around this?

That's such a load of nonsense. I've been using a Moto RAZR i with an Intel processor for months and have no problems with apps. The whole Intel incompatibility thing is a myth!

The Nexus range get OS updates as soon as they are released, any other brand android device generally has a long delay so the manufacturers can tweak the custom software and any custom drivers.
The Nexus also has better glass so its less likely to get scratched and has NFC (not used in the UK yet), both of which sound small but can save a lot of hassle (NFC can be used for wireless payments in the US via google wallet).
The processors will be tit for tat, some things the slightly higher clocked dual core will be better, but at the same time the quad will be better on other applications and generally better for multitasking.

Having said that I would personally wait and see what google announce/release soon as both the older nexus and fonepad will drop in price if its as big/good as everyone is hyping it to be.

But Asus usually be the first company other than google to get OS updated.
And regarding the glass, unfortunately the true is Nexus is not scratch proof. I already got a scratch on my own nexus 7. I have to get myself a screen protector to avoid further damage at the end.
NFC - you already said it. Not availible to UK!!! Why border? By the time availible to UK, it is the time for you to get a new garget.

It is true that fonepad's proscessor may not be as good as nexus 7. But who will use it for multi-tasking?
Fonepad has micro sd slot and can make phone call. Although I think most ppl won't use it as phone, since it is able to make phone call, you can use giffgaff £12 to get unlimited data, which is not restricted to those more expensive tariff for tablet only.

Only your own eyes will tell you this since the range of readibility in the population is huge and is also dependent on the distance from your eyes. All one can say is that the bigger the screen is the bigger the text could be.

If you're reading the web version or app version of a newspaper then it is fine.

But if you are reading a "scanned" in version of a newspaper or magazine, e.g. PDF or Zinio, then it will be too small and you'll need to keep zooming in and out.

Correct me if im wrong but the Fonepad doesnt come in a 32GB model? Nexus all day.

Just buy and iPad

Easy

Sorted!!

I really think this much better than an iPad. The hardware is better for Apple but software on the Nexus/google is king, think Apple will change the next version of iOS 6 a lot to include some of the features from andriod. Shame I'm not on O2

Thanks OP, good spot and purchased. Nexus / Fonepad / Ipad, doesn't really matter here, if you are after a Nexus like I was, then in effect £164 for the 32GB version with a case is a bargain, I ordered on line and collected in store, got the £20 voucher straight away.

Heat added.

Tried this on Thursday, used the O2 code fine but didn't get the £20 voucher afterwards. Manager at the store said I can't have the voucher with the O2 offer. Anyone else had similar problems?

I was planning on reserving this today and picking up tomorrow. Hope I don't have the same problem. Could you maybe scan in the receipt, email it to customer support and explain?
Edited by: "stotty247" 19th May 2013

I've been on the phone to customer support a few times about it, currently waiting to hear back from them.

For others who have done this deal and reserved online, did you get the £20 voucher instore, or was it posted?

I reserved on-line and went to store to collect, used my O2 code to get £20 off and was given the £20 voucher printed straight from the till there and then. Didn't get any arguments or problems.

Just bought the tablet. Went to Currys in Newcastle and couldn't get any discount. Didn't realise that the o2 priority codes aren't valid everywhere.

So I went to PC World in Gateshead and used the o2 code fine, and also got the £20 voucher with my receipt. Good stuff!

Although when I asked about the o2 code in PC World, the man had no idea what it was and said it would just be an online thing, so I had to explain to him what it was. He then tried entering the code in and it was successful.

I'm not on o2, I'm on a contract with TalkMobile.

I'm thinking of ordering an o2 sim for priority moments, do the pay as you go sims require topup for activation?
Or I might have to check if any of my friends use o2.
Is there any kind of checkup or verification or is it just a unique code that any one else could use?

A 5 digit code gets SMSed to you which you need to enter into the app. There is no O2 check after this I believe. My wife moved from O2 to Vodafone a few months ago and the priority app still works fine.

Just be sure to back it up with Titanium Backup or similar so you don't need to get the SMS resent.

This is driving me mad. My local Currys has both the tablet and case in stock and normally offer reserve and collect but won't for this. I have to order it for delivery within 5 days to a shop that already has it on their shelves now or drive 20 miles to collect from another store. Ridiculous!!

I've got a similar problem but not as bad as yours.
The four closest stores only have pay and collect, so I had to reserve at the fifth store.
Fortunately all the stores are close by, and the store I've reserved it at is 6 miles away.
Not exactly close but I can most likely get some one to drive me there.
After reserving mine, I tried checking again just now to see which stores have reserve available, now none of them.
Glad I reserved it, going to go tomorrow.
I'll probably ring them tomorrow morning to make sure they accept o2 priority vouchers, as an earlier user reported not all of them do.
I don't want to go all the way and not get the discount. I'll probably confirm the £20 voucher on the phone.

Does any one know whether this offer is a web exclusive?
Because if it's same price in store, then it'll be better going to the local store.

So last night I booked the deal online at the store that was some 6miles away.
In the morning I confirmed with them over the phone as to whether they accept o2 priority, they said yes.
All was fine until I arrived, when I arrived I presented the reservation.
I had to wait only to be told that they're out of stock and that they tried ringing me earlier that morning.
I did miss one call this morning that was from a private number, so there was no way I could have known it was them.
Overall, waste of time.

Managed to click and collect from a different store today whilst out of town. They accepted the o2 voucher code with no problems and I got the bonus £20 voucher to spend with my receipt. Definitely a hot deal, confused as to why the Tesco one is currently rated hotter!

Well then, earlier today I checked again and reserve was available for a nearby store, 1 or 2 miles from my home.
So I reserved the pack (tablet + case) and went in the evening.

I got the deal, used the o2 code to get £20 discount.
Paid £185 in total (N7 + case)
They gave me
-£20 coupon
-5% off any cartridges coupon
-A coupon to be able to buy a PNY 16gb usb stick for £10
-A Times / Sunday Times 3 month subscription gift card
-A day pass for viewing Sky Sports using NOWTV.

Good day I'd say

glad to hear you got sorted! sure you'll enjoy your nexus

Over a week now since I bought my tablet, been on to customer services a few times and they still don't want to give me the voucher Glad to hear other people haven't been having the same problem.

Picked mine up today. Used O2 priority to get £20 off, also got the £20 Currys voucher (which printed off automatically along with the receipt)

Yea, this is my first tablet, it's excellent.
I'm really glad I bought this.

Thanks for letting us know about this offer.

Curry's is showing it as £214.98, making the overall deal nearly £11 (after £20 moments voucher) dearer or am I missing something?

I also have RAZR I, and generally very pleased with it. There is the odd app that isn't compatible. BBC Iplayer only recently updated, and sadly no Candy crush......:-)
