Which 7” Tablet? Official Discussion Thread

@MindEraser I'm considering getting an iPad mini with 4G and keeping my phone really simple like a basic nokia to just call and text. I see it becoming the most primary surfing tool for me for websites, rss feeds, emails, social media, comms; skype, whats app, imessage and hopefully that will increase my productivity on my mac (buyers rationalization!). Not forgetting primary camera, navigation and ereader. I think the size will be idea for this .The trouble here is how the battery will cope. @chopzz that modification sounds cool but troublesome. As for NFC I think its early days and will seldom get used, it sounds cool but if I'm the only adopter amongst my peers its going to suck. I like the idea of posters having it and the interactivity but i don't think its going to take off anytime soon.

I think the 7 inch market is all a response to the e-ink ebook adopters that want a device that can do a lot more while still being easily portable (hand bags, coat pockets). iPad pros; user experience wealth of apps 5MP rear camera 4G LTE option iPad cons: screen resolution poor maps in ios6 Kindle Fire HD pros: HDMI out optimised for reading screen resolution Kindle Fire HD: closed os limited apps Nexus 7 pros: GPS maps screen resolution NFC Nexus 7 cons: stretched phone apps What to use NFC for at the moment [Quote] What does this enable you to do? And what uses are there for NFC as we speak?

@big-perm Your probably right about the likely omission of HDMI out but it would be great. I'm guessing they'd never do it because it would kill apple tv. This video has swayed me to the Kindle Fire HD in the Nexus 7 vs Kindle Fire HD fight. [Embed content] If you guys had to choose between the two(Kindle Fire HD and Nexus 7) what and why? GPS vs HDMI out 16GB vs 32GB NFC vs no-gap lamination techniques and antiglare polarization to dial in the readability

@traggi I can only answer for myself but I had a kindle keyboard that I got a refund for due to a defect so I decided to hold out before replacing it. The logical step would be to get another bottom line e-reader but there's a lot out there for just a few £s more than what I originally spent on my kindle (£119). Another reason is I've had smartphones for the past 10 years going all the way back to the Pogo. [Image] But most phones don't make for good reading, plus I don't think all the features phones have can co-exist with all the battery drainage that takes place. With a 7" device u get a better experience; visually, watching movies, reading magazines, websites, better form factor for reading books than a 10" or 4" and the very primary function isn't jeopadised because you decide what that is. With the Kindle HD having a HDMI out port it also becomes a pretty good potable media center. I'm still waiting for Apple's offering, I'll give it until the end of October. The features they must have to beat the competition are; 1. Retina display 326ppi 2. HDMI out 3. GPS 4. 32GB + That would be a dream but it is likely to be priced between £329 and £399 (ipod touch and ipad) without 4G LTE (expensive). Hope it happens

[Image] The 7" tablet market is heating up. Set alight initially by the Kindle Fire, then the Google Nexus 7 and now rumors of a forthcoming iPad Mini next month (Sept. 12th), What does the future have install for us? Wait, why does no one mention the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0? It also comes in a version that doubles as a phone (P3100), with expandable storage, dual cameras, GPS, full Android Market, it's a real killer. Why settle for less? No matter what android version their running, they'll be cracked and hacked in no time. What does Apple have to offer and at what price? The polls up, which 7inch tablet would you choose and why?

Buying Backpacks

That backpack looks way to big(nike SB eugene). I think for a laptop backpack it needs to be utilitarian but also sheek, for me that is. I used to have a black samsonite sahora that was sweet.[URL].
