Any thoughts on the Google Tablet?

I've been looking at 7" tabs a bunch this last month or so... I really wanted an 'iPad Mini', but it wasn't announced... Might be come Oct/Nov, but I don't want to wait...

So the Samsung Galaxy II was in the running... But the Nexus announced today has more power... And either less cost, or more memory for the same cost...

However, it is missing out on some nice to have'ities... Back facing camera (which I would have really liked), an SD slot, an HDMI slot (which I was looking forward to)...

Some of the Jellybean (Android 4.1) features will be nice... And apparently, you can add all your music (pirated or otherwise) to your library, and it gets linked to the cloud (Sounds like they're doing what megaupload did, but legit), so if you're never without wifi, you don't need much storage (or the SD; I'm assuming this is their 'argument' for not including it).

I bought the 16GB model, though a friend (a real Android fan) suggested the 8, partially for what I said above... I want the option of throwing some movies on there as needed though...

Also, it comes with a $25 'card' for google play (apps, movies, music, etc), and the latest Transformers movie, a book (I forgot which), and some magazines...
