OK, I bought the Google Nexus 7. It is faster than the 1008. It does not have an sd card slot, an HMDI output, a Remote, and it won't play flash, so Sirius XM doesn't work on it. Did I mention the screen is 7 inches not EIGHT inches. It makes a big difference. I have two 1008 one which I did not update. I use it everyday. Will see what I drag around, but I don't play games and the 1008 runs net flixs just fine. It is $199 with 8 gig of internal memory and no SD card slot. I am thinking the 1008 is still the best deal if you don't need the speed.
