I have had my current Nexus 7 for almost a year now and it has been my go-to tablet that I carry with me all the time. Works great. So when Google announced the new Nexus 7 tablet shipping with Android 4.3, I debated whether or to get one to replace my current model. The only limiting factor to my current version was that it was the 8GB model. After much debating, I went ahead and picked up the 32GB model from Best Buy and I can say that it was a good decision.
First, let me thank Google, ASUS or whomever for making it much, much easier to take it out of the box. Those who bought the original Nexus 7 know what I am talking about. Once out of the box, I found it even more comfortable to hold in one hand and its performance much better than the original. I immediately noticed the snappiness of opening and using my everyday apps such as Evernote, Pocket, SkyDrive, Amazon Cloud Player, TweetCaster Pro and Chrome. This performance boost is provided by a 1.5GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, an Adreno 320 400MHz GPU, and 2GB of RAM.
