I pre-ordered my Nexus 7 the day after it was announced, about 3 weeks after I purchased a Kindle Fire. I am very happy I was still within Amazon's 30 day return window and able to get a full refund on the Fire. I really never did like the Fire. It is very heavy, clunky, boring to look at, sluggish operating system, stupid home screen (the carousel), and has absolutely no sex appeal to it. UPS tracking says my Nexus 7 will be here tomorrow (Tuesday). I'm really looking forward to it -- otherwise I wouldn't have signed-up to be a part of this forum!
