Oh I'm sure they are indeed. And I'm sure Gameloft etc are more than happy to take up the slack on UE3 games on Android for Epic heh.

Been playing Sega Megadrive games on a Nexus 7 this evening, highly recommended. Not the most demanding of applications but worked well in fullscreen with a 2xSuperEagle filter. :)

Another Vote for Nexus 7 (I own one).

Solid tablet, runs well, get's newest Android OS's the fastest.

Also can easily restore the tablet back to factory in case the adventures of installing custom builds / rooting, etc. doesn't go well.

iPad's start at $329 and go up. OP is looking for something in $200 range.
There's also quality games on android. Not saying apple doesn't have them either.

Nexus 7. Just remember to reset Google wallet before you do a restore/root/rom flash on it. :D


Who uses their Nexus 7 for Google Wallet? :laugh: I can just picture someone now pulling their Nexus 7 out of their pocket and bumping it up against a reader to pay.

Oh, and congrats on getting the Nexus 7. Definitely the best you can get for the price point.
