I'm looking for a decent tablet for my wife. Price is negotiable, something sub-$400 so that if it dies, I can still sleep at night. Here are some qualifications:

Uses:
  • Of course, the general internet crap
  • Standard tablet stuff (music, pictures, etc)
  • Recipe display while cooking in the kitchen - basically be a digital cookbook.
  • HD Movie watching (streamed over local WiFi or from SD card)

My deal breakers:
  • *MUST* have the option of USB charging - proprietary charger is OK as long as I can ALSO charge via micro or other standard USB cable (albeit at a slower amperage charging rate).
  • 10" screen (maybe 9" would be OK too, but 7" are too small)
  • Must have good hacking community. I won't run it stock OS. Probably looking for Cyanogen ROM to run on it.

Suggestions?

But this all depends on whether you're a gamer or not. If indeed you are a gamer and want optimum graphics and performance whilst playing high end games, then wait to find out where will sell the TF700 but if you're not a gamer, then the Nexus 7 is definitely your best option as it will perform anything you wish perfectly and is better for holding aswell.

I'm not overly worried about the performance, as a game that runs well on say a note or S2 would probibly run v.well/excelent on the nexus 7. I am interested in the readability for long periods and I'm also wondering if there is a usb alternative to the lack of an SD card slot.

I'm looking to replace my Galaxy S1.

The best phones I can get where I live are the Galaxy X (which is essentialy a Galaxy Nexus updated by Samsung / but easy to "transform" into a pure Nexus using the Gnex toolkit) and the Galaxy S3.

The X costs about 950, and the S3 1450~1550.

I know the S3's hardware is more powerful, but is it that much more powerful to justify the extra cost?

I'm almost set on the X, but I'm a little worried about it's hardware getting obsolete too quickcly in the near future.

What do you guys think I should get?

Thanks!

Get the cheaper one. It will be more as powerfull enough.

Within 15 months there will be hot new phones that are more powerfull than the S3, the race never stops. If you want to keep up with that, you better have a lot of cash available. But if you're satisfied with the b-models, which are in fact good enough, you get a lot more bang for the buck.

Imho, yes! Well, galaxy s2 is great. but for me, gnex is greater. Gnex has a good xda community and unlike the s2, it is fully supported by Google. Means, Gnex would probably be the first phone to have any new android version release officially by Google. So yeah, go for the Gnex.
