    A week ago I picked up a 10" tablet and realized how bulky and cumbersome it was in my hands. I'm new to tablets, and I couldn't really hold it like I wanted to.

    I was trying to hold it like a console controller, but was having no luck. Instead, I had to hold one end up with a hand.. and touch with the other. Realistically speaking, could someone want to game on something of that size?

    I have done months' worth of research and am stuck choosing between two really awesome tablets; the Nexus 7 and the Transformer Infinity. I can't decide if a 7" or 10" screen would fit me best.

    thoughts plz? :p

    well if you want to game on a tablet then i would consider the infinity. i just bought mine and so far i really like it. one of the cool things is that a ps3 controller hooked up to the keyboard dock will allow you to play certain games with it. plus i just heard that the playstation mobile will be available for this tablet:ASUS and Wikipad get PlayStation Mobile support | Android Central.

    my suggestion is to go into staples and i think even walmart has it and try out the nexus 7. to me a 7" is too small. i love the big screen on the infinity. and the new lcd display just pops! it is very beautiful.

    just my $.02

    Hmm.. very gewd. I like the idea of connecting a gaming controller up to it. I have no idea how I would go about doing that, but it sounds like a nice idea :D

    I own an Xbox 360, and Microsoft's got this Xbox Smartglass app coming in the fall. It's supposed to turn the Android into a "second screen" of some sorts. I'm still unsure as to what it does exactly.. I was kinda hoping it would replace my TV screen, but I don't think it is going to work quite like that.

    I had no luck connecting a generic PS3 controller to my Prime via BT. But, it could be just a bad controller or I didn't set it up right (there are a few apps out there to help with connectivity.
    I'm not much of a gamer but the N7 is really nice to hold in two hands. It has nice curves, a soft back and it's light. YES, I'm just talking about a tablet :)p). Like ocean said, try to find a store that has one and check it out. Nice thing about the Transformer Pad serious is you can get the dock which is great for propping it up when using a controller (though, really, most tablet cases can do this).
