I haven't got into the tablet market yet but the Nexus 7 really appeals to me, much more of an Android fan than Apple.

I picked up the Kindle Fire and installed a custom ICS OS and it provides some great mobile/tablet gaming for $200. However, the Nexus 7 is the same price with JB OS (4.1) already installed and offers USB ports and camera for the same price as the Kindle. Might end up picking one of these up.

I just put a 4.1 JB ROM on my Kindle Fire.

I just got an Android phone and am loving it more than the iPhone. The OS has so much more freedom and flexibility. Don't have a tablet yet, but I'm trying to decide whether I want to get the Nexus 7 or the Microsoft Surface.

Nexus 7 - $200
MS Surface - Probably close to $1,000

For a first Tablet, go with something like the Kindle Fire or Nexus 7 just to see if your small investment was worth it and how frequently you will use. I love my tablet, I use it all the time but I thought I'd use it even more. So I'm glad I didn't drop 500+ on a tablet.

@xPhearR3dx I might go with Nexus, but I'm going to wait to decide until the price of the surface is revealed. MS said that it would be price competitively, so I don't expect it to be more than the iPad.

My Nexus 7 is on its way next week. One thing you have to consider is the ecosystem. Apple has a better ecosystem when it comes to tablet optimized games but Android is quickly catching up. As far as the hardware and price Nexus 7 wins hands down.
