Gotta be cheap for a 7" tablet with unlimited cloud storage.
thought the google nexus 7 at £150 seemed good value a few weeks ago. Kindle at £69 is appealing too.
to yr soul
when you can get a new iPad for just £270 more?
£270 for the same functionality at a larger size really comes down to if you want the extra 3" of screen size. But if you just want one to view the sort of stuff an e-paper reader can't do then it's definitely the best option.
There's a comparison chart at the bottom.
You have unlimited cloud access so unless you imagine having it for long periods without Wi-Fi access you'd certainly have enough entertainment in 16GB. My phone only has 16GB and I've used only 11GB, which is covering a load of music and bunch of decent apps.
Doesn't cover media you've acquired elsewhere.
What will I do with all those georgiabeths?
But I am more excited by the Kindle Paperwhite tbh.
is it basically a normal kindle (i.e. and e-reader) with a few apps and the internet tacked on.
is it a cheaper, basic version of an ipad/tablety thing that claims to do everything (including e-reader)
I think I'd be tempted if it's the former, but not if it's the latter.
Although you couldn't really do the former. My kindle is great but e-ink doesn't refresh well enough for the built in browser to be much more than a curiosity / emergency thing for when your other devices are misbehaving.
how do you get stuff to watch on it though? dont think amazon sell downloadable video that I can see, is it all streaming via lovefilm apps? guess I could always use my phone as a wifi hotspot to stream stuff on my commute
seems weird theres only £30 difference between the standard and HD one, seems like if your gonna pay in the £130 region may as well pay an extra £30 for the improved specs, wonder how many the non hd one will sell
I really want a Nexus.
Should I get a Nexus?
even though the actual hardware (bar the larger screen) is actually less impressive than the nexus. Then again it's kind of crazy that the nexus is actually built around a quad core processor anyway.
