I'm getting a Nexus 7 next week, my first delving into the tablet world. I was just reading some suggestions for setting up the N7 when I first get it, and I have some questions: I have a Google user name and password, but I've never gotten a gmail address; will I be able to back up my device (as recommended) to my Google account, or do I even have one at this point? Do I have the option to back up to my PC laptop instead of the the Google 'cloud'? This is similar to what I now do with my iPad, and it's the only way to get my music and other content onto the device--not sure if N7 is similar in this way. (FYI: I don't really want a gmail account if my Google name and password will work.) I'd like to be able to read my emails (account set up with my ISP); the set-up instructions say that to set up my email, I should open up the Gmail app and configure from there, but will this work for reading my non-gmail email (say that three times really fast)? Or would it be best to download another email app for this? Finally, I assume that I can download apps and other content such as music and books, directly to my N7, and don't have to go thru my PC for this--is that correct? Thanks, David.
