I'm Jim Barr, and I'm a tech geek through and through. I've been using various tablets and handhelds since the early Casio Zoomer and USR Pilot 1000 days. I'm really excited about the new Nexus 7 with its sleek design and great features.
I just sold my Google CR-48 Chromebook, and I sold my Nook Color. So that, plus a small amount of spare cash, I had enough to purchase a 16GB Nexus 7. I placed my order on Google Play last night, so now I patiently await its arrival.
I ran my Nook Color with CM7, and as an e-reader and basic tablet, it was quite nice. But from all I have read about the Nexus 7, it should really leave the Nook in the dust.
Oh, and I also run jimstips.com, however it's sorely in need of some fresh content.
