The old one or new one?

I got the old one, I like it.
Powerful enough to do everything I've thrown at it. Including n64 and ps1 emulators.

Yes

Out of the box like any technology its pretty basic. It does support most 3g dongles and you can (i think) buy a 3g enabled version too which should help ease connectivity.

Then its just a matter of tooling it up with business related apps.

If you want something a little more business centric you could try the microsoft surface tablet pc. Its recently come crashing down in price and even the rt version supports ms office.

Slimmer, lighter, and comfortable to hold

My cousin recently bought it from eBay. Overall it's a great tablet in every way, but the speaker and headset volume is extremely low.

I love the N7 2013

Honestly, after using an OG Galaxy Tab 7 and an iPad mini, I have found the N7 2013 to be the right tablet for me. Not only is it VERY light, but it has a decent battery life and is very clean and easy to us out of the box.

I love the new Play widget with the recently listened to music, read books,and magazines. It's really pretty spiffy.

Still using mine everyday

As one who likes to experiment with new tech every chance he gets, the fact that I'm still lugging my original N7 with my every day is a non-verbal comment on just how "right" it is for me.

I use it for reading, watching TV shows, social networking and some light-to-medium gaming. It can handle any game I've thrown at it, I just prefer to use my desktop or console for hardcore gaming.

It replaced an Acer 10" tablet in my case, and the 7" form factor is definitely the most practical for anyone who prefers to leave one hand free. I control the XBox through SmartGlass on it, and remote into my home office computer using Splashtop on occasion.

On the other hand, the onboard speaker is weak so plan for some headphones if the new version has not improved in that regard.

And then, a simple OTG cable will open up even more possibilities.

I bought Nexus 7 on last Christmas only and i am loving this because of bright & clear screen which is viewable from a wide angle.

I bought a Google nexus 7 (2013)(32g) about 2 months ago, works great

by markp24 In reply to What do you think of the ...

I have used an i pad for 2 years, the nexus 7 is better for my commute and as others have said the OTG cable is a great add on to have. But there are more "IT" useful apps out there for android, so for me its a great choice.
