Say hello to my new best friend! I have been wanting a tablet forever. Seems like everyone in my family had a tablet but me. I didn’t mind since I had my iPhone, but I really wanted something I could use for my business too. I decided on the Nexus 7 from Staples because I have heard the android operating system is really an awesome system. Kenny has it on his phone and his tablet and has had really good luck with it.
It came with a couple free magazines, a guidebook for the Nexus 7, which is very convenient to have.
One of the things I LOVE about the Nexus 7 is that all of the settings including brightness, wi-fi, etc are right at your fingertips. All you have to do is swipe down at the top right. Makes it really easy. I do have to say it has taken me awhile to get used to android instead of apple but I have come to love it. All your notifications show up right there at the top too. All you have to do is swipe down on the top left to see them.
I love that you can add your favorite and most used apps on the home screen but the rest of your apps can come up in just one touch on the circle with the 6 boxes in it. Plus the internet, Google Play Store, Movies, Music, etc is right down bottom. I really love the way that it fits in my hand. Easy enough to hold in one hand. I was leaning towards the 10 inch but I am glad I got the 7 inch. It is definitely big enough.
One of the main things that I wanted to be able to use the tablet for was to show clients their photos. This is so easy on the Nexus 7. All I do in Picasa (which I use anyways) find the album I want, click share then enable sync. This syncs with my Google+ account (shared with only me) and it pulls up right in the albums on my tablet. You can also set it to be able to be viewed offline. So just in case you don’t have wi-fi you can always access them! This is so awesome and worth it to me!
So far I am really loving it! I am so glad to finally have a Tablet and I think it will be a big asset to my business.
