Dreaming of a Nexus 8

The 2013 Nexus 7 is a solid device but with the on-screen buttons and the excessive bezels, the amount of screen real estate is somewhat lacking.

Personally I notice a significant difference in browsing, reading and watching video when using an iPad Mini or Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 versus the Nexus 7.

Based on the dimensions of the N7, Asus and Google could easily fit an 8" screen on there without changing the dimensions.

It's the only reason I didn't buy a 2013 Nexus tablet. Now I'm debating the Retina mini or the LG G Pad 8.3.

Anyone else on the same page with me?
