Not many rumors floating around about launch dates (that I've heard), besides "soon." If it really -is- available soon, and priced to attract new buyers, it should be a hit, as one would expect. I've got a Google Nexus 7 that I'm using primarily as an e-reader, but lack of 3G or 4G (or even 2.5G) is a handicap to taking it everywhere, despite the great form factor, great performance, and great wi-fi connectivity. Time to start planning the holiday gift list!?</p>
