Which Tab?(11 posts)
Depends what you want to use the tab for. A 10" tab you cannot easily carry around and for serious work it is no good either. That's why I decided for a 7" which fits into my jacket pocket and goes always with me. The most important factor for me is battery life. Mine (Nexus 7) will work for 8 hours. That is OK but not phenomenal.
Mike, doctordeere is probably a better judge of what the Chromebook can do because he owns one - I don't. From what I read, it seems to be an acceptable device for the price if your main aim is to communicate on the web - and that is probably what 80% of the current PC users do most of the time.
But it is different than a tablet. You don't have the same portability than with a tablet and not the same capabilities - e.g. GPS. A Chromebook would not suit me because I do either complicated CPU and RAM intensive applications on my desktop or navigation, phone calls, quick checks on my mail with my tablet when I am on the go.
The Nexus 7 is available with a SIM card for AT&T and T-Mobil service. The Nexus 10 is not yet 3G capable.
Samsung's Galaxy Tabs are available with SIM/3G in both 7" and 10".
As far as I know, none of the Acer Iconia tablets are yet 3G capable.
