Sounds like a great thing but I am still not convinced that a 7 inch tablet will be that earth shaking. Especially since phones are getting bigger. I can get a 10 inch with the Tegra 3 for $150 more. THAT is how i would tablet game if i had to choose.
Gameloft supports other tablets as well. They simply pushed this tablet more because of the Nexus device status which is the flagship line from Google. It comes stripped from a lot of the add-on crud a lot of manufacturers throw on their devices prior to shipment. The vanilla experience lets you choose what you want instead.
