Looking to wade back into the 7inch tab water

My 3rd gen iPod touch has finally given up the ghost. It won't last 3 hours off the charger, so I'm looking for a cheap, portable all in one entertainment device. I've decided that with a 5.3" phone and 10.1 inch tablet, I want another 7inch device, but it needs to have the same power under the hood as both my other devices The Galaxy Note  I and ASUS TF300T. Now my tablet is mainly for school and I adore my phone so I'm a bit reluctant to use it as a primary entertainment device. I do find that I'm missing the ease of whipping out my Kindle Fire 1st gen and it was sturdy enough that I gave no thought of tossing it in my bag and was even a bit rough with it. What I'm not missing is the limited storage, and no access to the Play (tm) Market. Also be honest I'm feeling a bit resentful that the OG Note users still haven't gotten Jelly Bean yet.

So my list of requirements are short, but meaningful:
Decent Storage (at least 16 GB)
Access to the Play Market(tm)
Timely Android updates

In the middle of making my list, the perfect tablet hit me, the Nexus 7 by Google! It fits all my needs perfectly, except the fact that it doesn't have a micro-sd card slot, but the 16 GB version is 199.00 which means I can overlook that. A plus is that it is made by ASUS who I totally fangirl. Another plus is if I want to spend a bit more I can get 4G service from AT&T ( which I'm not likely to do, because I don't like them very much right now) I'll just tether it to the Note.
