    No, there never is on Nexus devices. Google wants you to use its cloud storage.

    Ugh a rear facing camera. One of the things I liked about the old Nexus 7 is that it didn't have one. I'm of the opinion that anyone who regularly uses a tablet to take photos (especially in crowds) is a gigantic c*ck.

    Any idea if there will be a GSM version? I could use something like this for work, but it would need to be cell capable,

    It looks suspiciously like there are no charging dots and therefore no compatibility with the Asus Nexus dock. That's rather disappointing.

    I guess it is because of the wireless charging support ?

    Tbh, that's really crap. I use my Nexus as a bedside alarm clock and the dock keeps it nice and nearly vertical. I can swipe down to keep my head down for another five minutes or swipe up when I've had enough of it bleeping its little heart out. I can also, at a glance, see how late I'm going to be.

    The wireless charger makes it more 'laid flat'. Bloody useless, really.

    Plus the fact the dock wasn't particularly cheap, either.

    Well unless Googgle fix the chronic Wifi problems the current Nexus 7 has under 4.2 and 4.3 I'd advise you to stay well away.

    Since 4.2 it's had a tendency to lose the connection while appearing to be connected requiring you to cycle the wifi. I think it's with weaker singal sources but I'm not an expert. May not be universal.

    I have been using 4.2 for a while now and recently 4.3, all custom roms though and never had a single WiFi issue and I use my tablet pretty much 24/7 for work

    Why would rooting it affect your work email?

    Just upgraded the Nexus 10 to 4.3 this morning. Not had time to test thoroughly yet but all seems well so far.

    Aye, did my Nexus 7 last night, everything appears to have gone smoothly. It takes a while to install!
