The Verge: Google Nexus 7 Review

David Pierce:

Can Google keep the new Nexus 7 from the same fate? At the moment, it’s very fast. Powered by a hefty 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and 2GB of RAM, it flits around the OS with ease, and I rarely encountered stutters, jitters, or problems of any kind. (Except scrolling. Cool job Google.)

“Except scrolling”. Scored a 9.0/10, same as the (admittedly nine-months-old) iPad Mini. Last year’s Nexus 7 got an 8.8 from The Verge, yet most people, including The Verge, now agree it was a turd.
