I have pretty much only used the Nexus 7 since getting that tablet, much preferring it to the tab, due to a combination of things including convenience but probably mostly because the Tab had gotten frustratingly slow over the last year. However, it may have gotten a second life; I just got my update to ICS, and I was very dissapointed in not seeing a performance improvement. So I tried the same thing I did to the Nexus: installed Nova launcher and changed the settings under look and feel for scroll speed and animation speed to fast. So far (only few minutes of testing), this seems to have worked. The tab 10.1 is usable again. Unrooted, stock ICS tablet. The difference is now only a preference over size, which depends on the situation. I personally think if you can afford it, you should have an e-ink tablet (daytime reading outside), and an lcd 7" and 10" tablet. The 10" tab is better for note taking, the 7" is much more convenient for reading and lugging around.
