Thoughts on 7" tablet


Apr 23, 2012
Hi all,
I am looking to purchase my first tablet and I'm very tempted by the new Samsung 7" that released yesterday.

My intended uses are: reading, light web surfing, the occasional video, and possibly some light note taking in Evernote.

I didn't really want to go to a 10" since I want to be able to read (currently own an original Nook and the size is ideal for reading). Do you think I'll regret the 7" for web surfing and other uses? I already have a laptop and not looking to replace it- just something light to carry around with me and do quick surfing when I don't want to boot up the PC or carry it with me.

Thanks for any input.
