Hello Everyone!
« on: December 07, 2012, 01:23:48 AM »
Hey!

My name's Mel. I've ordered my Nexus 7 but there's a huge delay... so I went ahead and joined the forum in anticipation!  :P

Can't wait to finally get my hands on my Nexus and join in all the fun. ;D

Welcome to the forum Mel. With the US off the shelf availability in Walmart, Staples, and other retailers, a delay surprises me. Where did you order your Nexus 7?

I ordered mine from the Australian-based online store "Kogan" because they were able to beat Google's official price.

Usually they're actually pretty good, I ordered my Galaxy Note from them and had it within the week.

We're glad to have you. Stop by periodically and read up on some topics that may interest you regarding your Nexus experience.  I would recommend reading up on rooting and make a decision whether or not you would like to when your device arrives on the 15th. There are many advantages depending on what you intend to use your Nexus for.  What are your primary intentions as far as functionality?

I was thinking about rooting. I bought my Nexus to basically be my computer away from home. So mostly writing, gaming, web browsing and stuff.  :)

I don't see the big. Red to root. Yes you can do more and people that root don't bother me but I haven't found the overwhelming need to do of.

You are correct there is no overwhelming need to root your Nexus 7, as it will function fine without rooting. Those of us who elect to root do so because we enjoy the advantages that rooting offers.

I only rooted my G Note for the novelty of it, and to enjoy Jellybean before I was meant to...

So I'll probably leave my N7, at least for a while. You know how gadgets become less delicate the older they get... :P

@Popdevil No one is forcing you to root, it's personal choice...
