I already got it Smiley Happy twice well 7 times if you include my Nexus 7 preorder(GSM, and LTE version GNexus has it already).

I will say this now... I am impressed with Google with JB, and ICS didn't impress me much over GB.

I agree with your statement about ICS.

So many people say "it's amazing". I don't think there is anything special about it

Seems to me JB runs more efficiently than ICS.  Honestly this 6 month upgrade deal between GB and JB doesn't do Android justice.  If they actually take their time with their next big release there would be the wow factor.  Since they keep doing this 6 month update deal a lot of stuff ends up out of the mix or things don't run as well as they should.  The gap between ICS and JB proves this to me.

I am wondering how you bought the Nexus 7 when it is still in pre order status.

Google I/O.  They always give away their new products.  Nexus Q, Galaxy Nexus, and the Nexus 7 were given away to everyone who attended.  That doesn't include all the accessories.  Smiley Happy I went last year.  I honestly almost walked out with more than I spent to fly from Hawaii, and the ticket to go there.

If he went to I/O, I would think he would say that...... he said he purchased it..... I suspect a troll.

Good point. 

I use JB on my Galaxy Nexus already.

one thing I got to say...  Google should have taken their time honestly.  6months then 6 months.  If they spent the year on ICS it would have been better overall and that gap between GB and ICS would have been over the top.  ICS to me felt ok, but seemed like it was rushed (felt like Vista in a sense to me, and 7 is what Vista should have been).
