I had an opportunity to experiment with a Nexus7 tablet, an android device that runs all-things google. I have an ipad2 which I use daily. I really like the small, narrower size of the Nexus, although I did not find it very easy to type more than a few words. I think that if I used my consumer google account as thoroughly as I use my @alaska google account I would love how the Nexus 7 as it easily handles all the individual components of google without having to continuously logging in to individual accounts. I watched a couple of movie trailers which was quite impressive with the nexus 7 LCD display, although I expect that the ipad3 will also impress me once I get may hands on one.
I want my device to allow me to create things just as much as I want to read or get information. I was able to read, listen, and see material but didn’t find it very easy to create.
