Working with the Nexus 7

In the last couple of days I have stayed with my Nexus 7 while out of the house and I find it quite easy to use for 'most' things. The one limitation is reading magazines. I still like the larger format, 10", for reading magazines.

I also believe this is too small to use to teach from. I can learn from it however using it in the classroom is not easy. Again it is slightly small for that.

Someone mentioned the Samsung Note 8.1 the other day and I will have to see just what it looks like when getting something like a magazine on it.

In the next few days I will try annotating a PDF which is real easy to do on the iPad using Documents (Apple app). That, so far, is the best app there is for underlining, making notes, and highlighting a PDF. Actually better than Adobe Reader.

As this blog post is going up from email I will also be interested in how that works.
