I think that Google intentionally starved us for storage space! The launch of the Nexus 7 came right after the transition over to Play. Google intentionally doesn't want us to have to store our media on our device. The available app storage is another thing entirely. Many of the games inteded for use with the Tegra 3 are larger than 1Gb. So that 8Gb storage, formatted and 4.1.1 installed, leave room for only two or three games. Thats a bummer! I think Google must have something up their sleeve.
