I know I’ve lamented to you all before about how hard it is to pick a gift for Hubs. He is an ultimate tech geek and knows way more than I do about gadgetry and all things tech related. He does his research, and does a lot of it, before picking a new gadget or piece of technology. I recently received an opportunity to review a Nexus 7 tablet and was super excited that at long last, I was going to be able to give hubs a gift that would meet his gadgetry standards.
I was planning how I was going to surprise him with it for his birthday, which is in just a few weeks. That is, until he announced one day that he had decided he wanted to replace our old chrome book (because it’s be soldered together one too many times) with a tablet and he knew which tablet he wanted to get. Without thinking, I told him that he couldn’t get a tablet, and he asked why not.
Well, because I already got you one. So there. Surprise ruined, but Hubs is happy.
When I asked him why he wanted the Nexus 7, he said he wanted a simple tablet to use around the house for surfing the internet, checking email, and looking up tv listings, etc. He said the Nexus 7 is exactly what he wanted because the screen is clear and sharp and very easy to read.
Now that he’s been using it a bit, he says that the speed of it is great and he never sees any lag when running multiple apps and that the volume of the built-in speakers is great. The Nexus 7 is very light and easy to carry around. Hubs says he wants to get a case for it, though, because it often feels like it might fall out of his hands.
To quote my tech geek husband, “I believe this is the best 7″ tablet in the market.”
Now I just have to figure out what to get him for Christmas…
