I cant agree with you there. The nexus has a quad core processor to the tab 2's dual. It has a full 1gb ram instead of 780mb. Amuch better resolution at 1280 x 720. With a ppi ot 216. Also jelly bean with no custom ui.
Also isnt there microphone problems on cm9 with this model.
With all respect to ur development expertise. No micro sd card slit but with 16gb ram is more than enough. Unless u dont own a desktop pc or laptop for movie viewing etc.
I barely ever go past the 10gb mark on storage on tablets and uninstall games rather than have then sitting on my sd card. My music collection is also less than 3gb.
Tegra 3 12 core gpu destroys ti omap 4430 hands down.
I have used cyanogenmod many times however custom roms and kernels also outdo cyanogen everytime almost.
Thanks for your input but the tab 2 is already yesterdays news. Just like the nexus 7 will be in 6-9 months.
