    Hello everyone. I am new in this forum. I am looking for a tablet. I am in dilemma between Google nexus 7 and nexus 10. My primary purpose is studying (I mean I will use etextbook instead of printed book). Some opinions said that nexus 7 (only 7 inches) has struggled with etextbook because most etextbook are in pdf format, and nexus 10 can do better job with bigger screen. My next purpose is browsing web, music. I may not store many movies in my tablet. Please give me some advice, which one should I choose and 16GB or 32GB?
    Any advice is appreciated! Thanks in advance!:D

    Hello and welcome to the forums ;)
    I have moved your thread to the comparison section so you can recieve more help.

    Really it is all about personal preference between the two sizes as it will be easier to study on the one you prefer holding. I wou;d reccomend 32gb if your going to be storing alot of music and even just some movies . This should also leave room for some apps. My personal preference would be the nexus 7 as it fits better in one hand

    Liamo_210, do you think that I will have a difficult time with etextbook? Because I heard that most of etextbook for college are in pdf. format and they said nexus 7 is a little small to read pdf. file.

    I wouldn't imagine so but obviously the better resolution and bigger screen would make it easier in the nexus 10

    A Nexus 10 would be better simply because of the bigger screen allowing you to view the entire page at once without having to scroll around. And of course bigger storage capacity is always better.

    Dunno probably the same as the nexus 7 but don't take my word for it.

    Sorry I don't no but one year is usually the normal. So provably. To be honest I wouldn't take warranty into consideration
