    This same question has been asked several times recently. Try a search for more details. The consensus seems to be go with the Nexus 7 based on bang for the buck unless you need the features it doesn't have (rear facing camera or sd card for example).

    Here is a video review comparing the two:



    There are two other 7" Samsung tablets (7.0) a d I have heard rumors that Samsung is going to be releasing a 7" Note series tablet. I might wait to see if there is any truth to this rumor, but most of Sammy's 7" tablets are over 6 months old, so they should be dropping a new one any time.

    I owned Tab 7.7, imo:

    Pros
    - It's super slim
    - Great battery life
    - Latest firmware DXLP8 solved ICS Wifi bugs.
    - No worry of storage as It have external sdcard support.

    Cons
    - No update to JB Android v4.1.+
    - Not much development (If you flasholic)

    Check out the price and compare which is cheaper, and as above members said about other Samsung model.

    Bottom line, I still love my Tab 7.7 :)

    Not sure about the price. Why not buy Tab7.7 P6800 with 3G capable?

    Pic stay?
    Google 7 meant for portrait mode only.
    Unless you hack/mod to work in landscape

    Edit: Take a look here for rotation on Nexus/ Google 7

    Android 4.1.2 goes live, gives Nexus 7 owners landscape home screen: > HERE <

    Perhaps this is a good question for the manufacturer.
