We see the Nexus 7 selling well and I thought it would be helpful to share some key tips with you to get you setup and enjoying your Nexus 7 as well.

  • Tip #9: Place Widgets on the home screen

    Tip #9: To get some widgets on your home screen, tap the App Launcher and then top on the upper left Widgets option to view the widgets you have installed.

  • Tip #10: Enable eye blink for more security

    Tip #10: If you use the Face Unlock method to lock your Nexus 7 then I recommend you enable the eye blink "liveness" option so that a simple photo cannot fool the security system.

    This free movie isn't available in Canada. So there's NO free movie or credit for Canadian customers. Unfortunately, Canadians are pretty much an afterthought when it comes to these "promotions or deals".
