Says nothing about it being a display model and even the older thread suggests that none of the units were display models.

Color me tempted as when I upgraded the Galxy Tab 2 to JB it sure made a big performance diff. Starts to make me question the Nexus 7 as a second tablet and consider Galaxy Tab 2 + Galaxy Tab Plus combo for the family running JB Cyanogen on both (if there is Cyanogen on the Plus)

On the product page there's a DISPLAY MODEL indicator right under the product picture.

Do you guys always wear rubber gloves or something?
Only when I'm using my tablet, clearly. Though, in my defense, I did buy the refurbished Nexus 7 from Newegg. Came pretty much BNIB with no physical signs of wear.

Display model at TSCC doesn't actually mean it was on display. I bought a display model camera that was still sealed in manufacturer packaging, so YMMV. Having said that, $149 seems high considering it was just on sale new for the same price.

Somehow missed that. Trend seems to be that that's not typically the case.

Adding to my Nexus 7 debate there's a real nice XDA forums thread comparing the Nexus 7 to the Galaxy Tab Plus. Seems that the Tba Plus build is generally preferred over the Tab 2. Think I might well be convinced. Thanks OP

Looks like there's only two left or it would only let me add that many to the cart. I got the Tab 2.0 7" from Costco when it was on sale. Awesome tablet. Very happy with it so far.

Yes, it can be upgraded to 4.0 (ICS) but not Jellybean - at least not officially.
According a few websites, the Tab 7.0 Plus will get Samsung Jellybean, and it also got CM10 support in case it is orphaned by Samsung.

When I compare my Nexus 7 to my colleague's Galaxy Tab2, I can't help to notice my N7 feels kinda cheap (plastic back) and bloated in size. Makes me kind of jealous of Samsung's better build quality.

Last time I bought the "DISPLAY MODEL" laptop from The Source, it was visually no difference from brand new. Definitely will buy again from there.

Tab PLUS is better than the Tab 2, IMHO, but ONLY if its the SIM model, wifi only is useless...

$149 was for the Tab 2 with a slower processor, less internal storage, no flash, no hdmi support, etc. The Canadian Tab Plus does seem to be orphaned by Samsung. Did the Canadian version ever receive ICS even?

I have this and it's a good little tab, running a JB custom ROM (paranoid android). Works great although you lose HDMI support (needs a pricey adapter anyway). It's also one of the few tabs with haptic feedback. Great for the price and feature set, although better than Tab 2 it's lagging the Nexus 7 in speed and display.

Received a cancellation email this morning. Placed my order around 2:45pm EST yesterday. :(

Did others get an email too?
