With the name and the power they put into this thing I hope it'll be a current tablet for at least 2-3 years with the next few versions of Android working with it. I hate seeing devices come out that are considered legacy within a year or two.

I hate seeing devices come out that are considered legacy within a year or two.Oh, I disagree completely. There's nothing more annoying than wanting/needing a new device and only being able to get an outdated version. The way technology moves, electronic devices need to be updated annually, if not semi-annually.Updated Nexus 7s could be 7.1, 7.2, etc.
Because the screen is 7 inches measured diagonal.
I'm not a fanboy by any means, but I do hope that 4.1 and Nexus 7 will be the start of Android manufacturers leveling the playing field. It is great that we are not walled, but there is nothing worse than spending good money on a product that is obsolete in a matter of months (weeks?).
I'll stick with my opinion on this... there's nothing worse then having to reinvest in your devices every year or two. The Nexus 7 is one of the more powerful tablets on the market, so I'd like to see at least two years of life out of it. The same thing goes for laptops and desktops, though many in the industry want us to buy new every couple of years I try to get at least three years out of each device I own and the Nexus 7 will be no less.Google can continue to update the device via software and possibly add new features through the dock port or USB port when possible.
