Google’s Nexus7- the iPad killer?

After a terribly late arrival (due to the high demand) my Nexus 7 finally arrived. A 7-inch tablet made by Asus and Google, it provides stiff competition for the industry leading iPad.

With ElegantThemes, you can choose to buy individual themes or buy access to all the themes and plugins ($69 for 89 themes at the time of writing), which is what I did.
