Detailed review
This is a great device! I compared this to the Asus Transformer Infinity and ended up picking this one mostly due to the higher resolution screen. But I also like that it will always be the first to get the latest version of the Android OS.

I've been extremely please with the performance too. I was concerned that all those pixels would bog down down the processor/GPU, but so far it's been a screaming demon. Everything is super smooth and videos look amazing (bought the timescapes video which is great for showing off what the screen can do).

The only thing lacking is official accessories. Google/Samsung are losing a lot of money by not offering a good case and pogo charger already.
