That screen makes this device pretty underwhelming to me. Especially with the N7 out with 1080p.

I think it's a mistake to rely solely on bigger numbers when it comes to screen resolution. For example, this screen is probably less than 4" wide, meaning it's more than 200ppi. Are you sure you can really appreciate higher resolution? Making resolution higher than your eyes can really appreciate is nothing but a waste of GPU power, shortening battery life.

True, but i can easily spot the difference between first and second gen Nexus7, so i would also be very wary about buying a device with a screen res that low. The 19x12 screen on the N7 is also not that battery heavy either. Will be intereted to see how this is, but i doubt it will trouble Samsung or Google.

I've been waiting for a tegra 4 tablet, but i too want one that's 1080p ready. Mostly because most of the movies i watch these days are 1080p. It's like getting a top of the line i7 with an equally impressive videocard, and playing on an old 1280x1024 crt.

It's pretty battery heavy. At 50% the new 7 rips through battery with what I would consider a standard workload. The battery life you get is really nowhere near the claimed 10 hours. Expect closer to 7. One of the reasons I returned mine. Also, screw glossy screens on a tablet. Seriously. The screen quality was fantastic, but being able to see my face on the home screen is pretty annoying.

I only have the first gen Nexus7/10, Galaxy S3, HTC One X to compare it to and battery wise it's alot better than those. At night time using auto brightness i can get a few hours out of it without much impact on the battery, so without something better to compare it to that is good enough for me.
