Technology as we see it….

Google Nexus 7


For many, owning a tablet with a model data connection seems pointless. Why bother paying for an extra contract, bill or data plan when you already have a mobile phone which does pretty much the same thing in your pocket? Even if you get desperate, personal hotspot allows you to tether your tablet to your mobile data plan saving you money.

The Google Nexus 7 with mobile data looks exactly the same as the wifi only option except it comes with a little slot where your simcard goes. Unfortunately, the data plan you’ll be buying is only 3g compatible with no LTE available for the Nexus as yet. This means slower streaming, more buffering and less enjoyment.

The battery on the mobile Nexus lasts pretty much the same amount of time as the wifi version meaning you can get away with charging it every few days – unlike your mobile phone. Storage-wise it is disappointing that 32gb is the largest size available.

If you are still thinking about which tablet to but, you’re still better off buying an iPad but if you have your heart set on a Nexus you need to get the data plan. Having that extra mobility and access means you’re not stuck with a playlist which needs updating and can have all the benefits on a tablet where ever you are. No more running from wireless hotspot to wireless hotspot.

Even if you don’t think you don’t think you’ll get through all your data allowance, it’s better having the option there just in case.
