10" Tablet

Still can't make up my mind between the Nexus 10 and the iPad.

I've had the use of a Galaxy Tab 7" for a week or two, and I must admit I'm less than impressed with Android as a tablet O/S, though I like it on my smartphone.

Is it likely to be any better on the larger screen, in its latest incarnation, or do I ignore the reviews and go for the iPad?

I'm not particularly bothered by the price difference (someone else is paying!), but I do want the best.

morddwyd,

"For instance, how do I transfer a Word document from my PC to the tablet?"

There Apps such as Dropbox, Box, SugarSync etc, which let you keep files sync'd between iPad and PC.

I use both "Dropbox" and "Box", but found SugarSync to be unnecessarily complex.

For what it's worth, have seen Android tablets, 7" and bigger and iPads of 10" size last weekend in a Hotel and was astonished how well and sturdy the iPad is. For me the cost is prohibitive but if I needed a tablet for work I know which way I'd go.
