The Nexus 7 is just about to hit the shelves, and by how things are going so far, we can bet it will be a killer device. Not only by specs, but by the OS it’s running and by its price, which is darn low -$200 and $250 for the 8GB and 16GB models respectively. And minutes after the Google I/O conference, the developers started warming up for the Nexus tablet. They acquired root, overclock and even made a couple of ROMs for the Nexus 7, all before the official release! It was the same with the Samsung Galaxy S3, and judging by its popularity, the Nexus tablet will be a huge success.
If you want to learn more about this matters, here are the links that will lead you to each thread respectively on XDA-Developers Forum:

And don’t forget: with rooting your phone, you void your warranty. The same goes with custom ROMs and kernels, and by flashing those, you can brick your phone, so beware!
