I had the 7+ and the 8.9 side by side today trying to decide the same thing. My concern was that the 7" screen might be just a tad bit too small for web browsing. If I was going to keep the tab at home, I'd grab the 8.9. Since I want to take this tab with me everyday, I decided that the 7+ was going to be a lot more convenient and cooler and satisfying to be toting around. The 7+ is also more comfortable when using Swype which is important to me. Web browsing is very manageable if you don't mind pinch and zoom and double taping a bit more. The quality of the HD video I sampled on the smaller screen revealed less artifacts than on the 8.9, despite the 8.9's supposedly better screen. If you still can't make up your mind, then the upcoming 7.7 might fit the bill.
