    Aye, paid for it out of the £15 free voucher too so I'm not complaining.

    Drag the taskbar down and touch the rotation icon, job done.

    Re: Google Nexus 7 Discussion Thread

    I have had my Nexus 7 for 3 weeks now and find the graphics are not as good as the ipad but the Nexus 7 is a lot faster than the iPad, web pages take longer to load on my iPad hence for buying the Nexus 7, all in all I use the Nexus all the time when not on the computer, Price had a big say in buying the Nexus 7 and it is ideal for reading books where the iPad was a little more bulky.

    My rotation update works.

    I had a to take a few plane journeys recently and it was an absolutely perfect companion especially when loaded with a travel guide for quick use the other end!

    Although I did forget to take it out of my camera equipment bag at security so I had to go through the whole search process. Still ill remember next time..

    You bought a new tablet because the iPad's browser loaded pages slowly?

    Not the only reason but one, I am also a little fed up with the apple hype, just changed my phone from an iphone to a windows phone, not sure if that was a good idea but the connection is better went through times where people could not get in touch with me as the iphone lost connection all the time, but love reading the books on the Nexus 7 and is a good handy size, no doubt the smaller ipad will be overpriced.

    Re: Google Nexus 7 Discussion Thread

    To be fair it's not just the browser - overally the N7 feels a darn sight quicker at most things than my iPad 3. Couple that with (frankly) a better OS and it's only really the screen on the iPad 3 that's a plus.

    Re: Google Nexus 7 Discussion Thread

    Been sinking my teeth into mine and been amazed throughout. Can't believe how well high end games run - put GTA3 on highest graphics and resolution and its silky smooth.

    I rooted it and put a custom 4.1.2 ROM on it, and I didn't think it could be better than stock but I was pleasantly surprised! Just looking for great apps and ways to extend the battery as it doesn't seem to live too long at the moment.

    But overall incredibly glad I bought it. It's so much easier to bring around than a 10" tablet too, when on the tube or bus.

    Re: Google Nexus 7 Discussion Thread

    Think i'm going to sell my Archos 70 and Touchpad and get one of these. I like the size of the Archos 70 and video watching is pretty good - but other than that the thing feels so slow. Apart from the lack of micro SD and hdmi are there any problems with the Nexus 7?

    Just wish Google would hurry up and release music and magazines in the UK I know you can use a proxy but I don't want to have to mess about to use the store every now and then.

    Zinio more than makes do for magazines at the moment but the music would be a great addition.

    I'm using this - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B008Q7DDIA

    No buttons or ports are obstructed, the screen is free from anything blocking any part of it and it's survived one hazardous drop onto the tiled kitchen floor.

    That looks pretty good actually. Might be time for me to start looking for a new one if there are some better ones out now!

    I spent ages reading a mammoth thread on the Phandroid forums, following the hundreds of links and reading all their own personal reviews before settling on that one.

    Highly recommended.
