Google Nexus 7 inch 3G Tablet wt Wi-Fi

WOW! My new favourite toy by far…. loving my Google Nexus. I debated for a while what the point in having a tablet was….especially as I already have a smart phone. But, as I researched the craze of tablets and what the best were on the market, I totally found myself with Nexus envy!

I ended up holding out for the release of the 3G version of the 7 inch Wi-Fi…and a big 32GB! It was only a little more expensive and probably of better use in the long run. Since I’m still waiting to connect to 3G, I have been hanging out in coffee shops and bars, downloading all sorts of apps and a plethora of music while catching up on all the goss with friends and new acquaintances!

The music – OMG – the music is the best. definitely recommend the Bit Torrent app mixed with the KAT (Kick ass torrent) site for awesome and fast file sharing…. my music collection has jumped by almost 200 albums in 2 weeks! Great for long train and plane trips and the odd house party! Essential Mixes anyone?! But anyway, seriously, ditch the PC or laptop and grab a tablet! I love the fact it is small enough for a few jacket and jeans pockets, but plenty big enough to work off.

The resolution, pixels and colour is great, the sound good (I plug in high def headphones or speakers instead so my ears dance) and it weighs nothing! For the avid traveller, blogger and lover of beautiful and useful gadgets, this is the ultimate. Nothing in the same range really compares for me….. keep the ipad mini…. the Nexus doesn’t even have to be a ‘mini’ – it just IS! Oh, and keep the Kindle Fire HD….. I like Amazon, just don’t want to be married to it! Android software really is killing it in every way…. I suppose I get the best of both worlds… my smart phone is an iphone 4s….. between the 2 devices, i am set…. so I’m happy!

It really is crazy to think about how the world of travel and the technology we have has changed the way we connect with the with people, ourselves and the world itself. I’m totally happy and embracing the ‘new age’, as it were…
