Does the nexus 7 have a large enough screen?

    I'm debating on whether I should get this or the Asus transformer 300 10 inch. The biggest factor is size. The nexus 7 reminded me more of a super sized phone where the Asus really feels like it could be more useful with typing and web browsing. Are you able to be really accurate typing on the n7? Thanks

    That was exactly what I was thinking prior to going with the nexus, after fondling other seven inch tablets I decided it was fine, the tf300 was sweet but I don't see myself lugging one around as much as I do the N7. I type easily and fast enough I haven't even bothered to put swype on it yet which is the first thing I do on my phones. There is some kind of bug that skips a letter while typing ever-so-often though, that's my only annoyance. Otherwise the keyboard is very good.

    I have a Viewsonic Gtab which is 10 inches also its probably a lot heavier than the tf300 however after using the N7 for a while now it feels so great in the hand its light ad one handed use is a breeze unlike the gtab. IMO if you need a 10 inch screen and you want to do serious work on it get a netbook for less. If your only using it for multimedia the N7 is perfect.

    I swapped my Xoom for the N7 and don't regret it. If anything typing is better because you can reach all of the keys whilst holding the device up.

    For me, 7" is also good for films and browsing along with being more portable.

    I have the original Asus Tranformer, but havent used it once since I got the Nexus 7, I think the screen size is pretty much perfect, websites look great on the screen and its perfect for reading books. Youtube videos are great at 7" too.

    Only you can determine if something is "enough" on any level.

    I have both a TF201 and an N7. It really depends on what I'll be doing to which tablet I use. If it's a short trip to the bar or coffee shop, I'll take the N7. If it's a lengthy trip away from home, I'll take my Prime. With using Swiftkey on my N7, typing is really nice. It's so light and comfortable to hold. I rarely use my Prime without the keyboard dock, so I never type on screen.

    If space was not hogged by the navigation bar, yes. I notice a big difference with the 7" View using Honeycomb and Gingerbread. I went back to Ginger, since prefer the extra display space for movies games and web.

    Thanks for the replies. I went ahead and ordered the Asus tf300 because it has a lot more memory and features

    No offense to N7 owners, but depending on use and if only having one tablet, the TF300 is a better option than it's smaller, storage constrained cousin.

    To each his own rushmore. For some the larger screen is a must have, for others, the N7 is the right size. Just like iOS is the right choice for some, for others, like me, it isn't. I haven't used a ten inch tablet myself so I can't speak to the difference, I can say I am very happy with the size of my N7. It is large enough for me to easily use two hands yet small enough I can still comfortable use it with one.

    Apart from the NEVER using it bit I agree :)

    For me pricing was a consideration as well. I would love to jump all in but I can't swing the extra $$ or at least I can't justify it. Plus its been a great starter tablet for me and I like knowing I will get the newest software as well. ;)

    Sold my GTab 10.1 16GB WiFi for my n7 8GB, and haven't regretted it for a microsecond. Same resolution on a smaller screen makes the picture crisp and vivid, typing is easier for the reasons listed above, and gaming is easier, too (games like Dead Space and Mass Effect), for the same reasons.
