Not nearly as good of a deal as the US Cellular $94.86 situation, but at least it is available nationwide. Perfect for Android gaming.

But it can't also be used as a phone, which is why some people would take this over a Nexus 7.

Well, you can always do free wireless calling on a Nexus 7 if you download Skype?

That is highly debatable actually. First things first, whither or not this thing has a sim card (from my understanding, it's a no if this is the US model), then any carrier that uses a sim card (like ATT) could not use this device as a phone.

Anyway, decent deal, but you can get some better tablets for as much or slightly more.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

Not really. Skype is only free when calling another skype number, it costs money to call a physical number. Plus it is bigger to carry around a tablet, even if it's 7", instead of a phone.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Better not tell my N7 that, it might decode to stop letting me use it as a phone.

Semantics. Clearly I meant the ability to make/receive calls/texts on the go.
