I'm not going to take over the threat with a complete review of an item that is not for sale here. To read more on the N7, click on the link. ASUS and has Tranformer Prime guts.I just pointed the things that it doesn't have that I'm used to with My galaxy player.
The galaxy player doesn't have gorilla glass, but smaller devices don't flex as much as larger ones. This makes them harder to break. A long stick is easier to snap than a short one.

That is your solution, In my case, I don't care for having stuff shoved in my ears all day. If you play in landscape, all the sound comes from one side. The iPad is used must of the time in protrait AFAIK.

Point to you, people look extra douchy when holding a tablet up to film something.

But yea, the big con is no SD card support, but you could use this (I was told):
And I do wish for HDMI support.
Another good alternative (but spec. wise just got crushed by the Nexus) that does have SD support is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 at 7”.
I'm spoiled by the 32GB capacity on top of the 8GB internal memory, so it would feel like a downgrade. I do understand than it is not necessary in the home network with file sharing, however as soon as you are out the door, you got nothing but what you carry with you. If you are lucky you can find free Wifi out there, some Cable companies offer free Wifi with membership, but you have to happen to be near a hot spot of theirs.
About the card reader, looks like a digital scrotum.
