Calling all hardware sperglords!

So thanks to the incredible generous nature of everyone who came to our wedding, the wife and I are in the market for a tablet – but I need the advice of some fellow tech heads!

The top contender for our money.

Right now the price-versus-performance favorite seems to be the WiFi-only Google Nexus 7, which will lead to much less eye-strain than our little second generation iPod Touch and has the added benefit of being out from the iOS umbrella.  It also blows the Kindle Fire HD out of the water as far as functionality and power for the same general price – at least from everything I’ve read in the course of my research – but I want your opinions before committing to what will be a pretty damn major purchase for us.

And don’t worry, the lion’s share of wedding gifts will go towards saving for the future or purchasing much-needed household items.  This is probably going to be the big “fun” purchase for us, which is why it’s so important to get a good look at what our options are, so let me know your thoughts!

The LG Motion 4G - yea or nay?

I’ve got a hardware hard-on.

On a related note, we’re also looking to possibly purchase a no-contract smartphone in the future too – depending on how the finances go – and we’ve been looking at the LG Motion 4G.  Any of you fine MTV viewers out there have any experience with that particular model or with LG smartphones in general?

  1. If you’re going for a 7″ tablet, I’d go for the Nexus 7 as well. For a 10″, I would (and did) go for the ASUS TF300T. Both tablets are made by ASUS. I picked up the 32gb version of the TF300 for about 370 shipped. Both are excellent tablets.

    • I’ll check out the 10″ ASUS tablet, thanks for the tip!

      They actually just updated the Nexus 7 for the holidays. 16gb and Android 4.2 for the entry-level $200 version, and a 32gb version with 3G for $299. I don’t know how useful the 3G would be though.
