@cengland0: i can do without the back camera, but i was kind of annoyed about the no SD slot thing. apparently you can connect a usb drive up to it after rooting.

@carl669: I played with the Nexus 7 this weekend because a friend of mine bought one. It's okay but nothing to write home about. It's missing a rear camera and a microSD slot.

My recommendation is to stick with the 10" versions and my favorite is the ASUS TF700 which I also own. It is very fast and has 3D video capabilities, a front and rear camera, and a microSD slot. You can get a keyboard for about $150 that adds even more battery life and USB ports and another SD Slot.

I've been using the TF700 since it came out and I wouldn't be able to recommend a different model than this one.

Husband has the Nexus 7 and is like a six-year old on Christmas morning.

Nexus 7, Kindle Fire 2 (once released) or Samsung Galaxy. Whatever you do, stay away from being fruity.

@jsimsace: iPads are nice. Android is nice. The only reason I would stick with the Android is that it's open source. I can plug it into my computer and it acts like an external drive so I can easily transfer files to it. All the iPads and iPhones require that you use iTunes to synchronize your files.

Many of the applications are available on both the iPad and the android devices. When install the application on the iPad, it might cost you a couple bucks. If you get the same application on the android, the price is either cheaper or free and supported by advertisements instead.

Not one single iPad or iPhone has the ability to install additional memory cards but several android devices have this capability.

One problem with Android is there are so many different versions of the OS and so many different resolutions out there that some of the applications will be incompatible with your device. At least Apple makes sure everything works before it appears on the market.

I realize that you said android, but my family has 3 iPads. I would recommend them in a heartbeat. JM2C.

I got my G/F an Acer Iconia 10" for its on-board USB, Card slot, HDMI out. She likes it, uses it for her Psychology schooling (reading), she annotates PDF files with it. Her aunts have also got her hooked on some games. We've not had a problem with it, we've had it about 10 months.

I own a Patriot Tablet from KIZTEK.com. Its only $110 and performs great. Had it for about 8 months and no issues so far. Great tablet for the price. They aren't as popular as most of the other brands but they have great customer service and I got my tablet within a few days of ordering.
