Google Nexus 7 3G out today
As title - appeared in Google Play today, and I've just ordered one, for 3-5 day delivery. 32GB, WiFi+Mobile, unlocked, £239, plus £14 delivery. No case, though - the old cases don't seem to fit.
The iPad Mini 32GB cellular is showing as £449 on Apple's website, with a despatch date of "Late November". The Nexus-7 has a better spec than the mini on just about everything, except that the mini also has a 64GB version (£529), and has a rear-facing 5Mp camera. Oh, and it comes in a choice of two colours... :)

"...and has a rear-facing 5Mp camera."
I read one refreshingly honest tablet review in which it said something like: "It's got a rear-facing camera. I have no idea why manufacturers fit these to tablets, given that you will look like a twat if you wander around holding up a tablet to take pictures, but I suppose that users expect one. Enough then to say that it is there and it is, as usual, crap."
Like iPads and other tablets, the Nexus looks like fun but definitely not something I really need. I have an inexpensive Toshiba laptop that does everything a tablet can do (at least that I care about). Still, I'm sure I'll eventually give in and buy one when I have a little extra cash around.
It looks good and waiting for some more reviews on it so that i can buy it.
