    no support for flash player (and all succeeding version of android from 4.1) is the biggest downer.. seems like android is losing its one of the biggest weapons against other OSes in the market :(

      That may not be a bigger issue in the future as html5 is gaining more popularity and widespread use.

  2. Was finally able to reserve one with one of my officemate’s US credit cards. If you order from Google Play the price does not include shipping (13 dollars in my case) and the state tax. I spent a total of 303 USD all in. But I bought the 16gb version and a case.

    So if you’re going to Johnny Air this tablet back home, you’ll be paying the NYC or NJ tax in addition to the shipping.

    Ang dali nyo namang masilaw sa PRICE. Why the hell didn’t they include a microsd slot at leasT!!! Bahala ng tumaas ang preyo konti ok lang. The 8gb version is said to only have 6GB of user-accessible memory. grabeh naman. anu malagay mu sa 6GB these days? it’s strategy to make you wanna buy the 16GB instead kasi konti lang ang dinagdag sa pag manufacture ng 16GB. and unfortunately it’s working kasi gusto agad ng mga propect buyers 16GB haaay. no thanks Asus/google!!! I’ll PASS!!!!

    The idea is you get your content from Google Play over WiFi and not from your local storage. That’s why they removed SD card, forcing you to spend more money on google play for content.
