My thoughts exactly. I skipped getting a 2013 Nexus 7 because I was doing fine on my 2012 model and figured I'd leapfrog to the 2014 model. Now the entire 7" market seems to have died off and the only options are a 6" phablet or a 10" chromebook replacement. I'd kill for a nice, reasonably priced 7" again.
I wouldn't mind just getting a replacement battery for my Nexus 10. The performance is adequate (although encrypting it has not done good things for performance), but the battery life keeps shrinking, ever since I left it in the trunk of my car for a few hours when it was below 0F.
Quantum dot technology is really cool thing. The technology uses quantum dots to emit light. As a result TV picture becomes brighter, colors have better accuracy and higher saturation. Read about quantum dots in details here:
