    Looks nothing like a iPad so no need to worry about apple ….. Wink wink….

  • I’m seriously disappointed with the lack of MicroSD. Seriously Google, how much would have this cost to add in? We are talking pennies. Yet they add in NFC. Who the heck is going to go in a shop with a tablet and say “oh just wait whilst I whip out my tablet to pay for that bill”. I know NFC can be used for sharing and can send and receive basic information, but as Google says, only 1m Android phones have NFC. That’s 1 in every 400 sold.

    I won’t personally miss Bluetooth as I hardly use it other to send files to other phones. I can see some people wanting to connect a Bluetooth headset to use this as a way of conference calling.

    Will Jellybean run Flash?
