So many years have gone by and it appears that Google won't be doing another Nexus 7. I'm wondering how many have replaced their machines with something else?
I don't use a tablet as often as I did four years ago. I did recently buy an RCA Voyager 7" 16GB Tablet Android 6.0 (https://www.walmart.com/ip/RCA-Voyager-with-WiFi-7-Touchscreen-Tablet-PC-Featuring-Android-6.0-Marshmallow-Operating-System/53990885). When I bought it, I figured it was money down the drain.
I was surprised at the value for the money (http://tinys-bs.com/wordpress/?p=587).
By the way, I still use an old N7 for reading and another as a picture frame.
I still have my 2nd generation Nexus 7 and use it for reading and sometimes light document creation with a wireless keyboard. I would like to see Google make another 7 inch tablet but I'm not holding my breath. As phones got larger and average screen sizes increased, most people use their phablets as tablets. I guess the best screen to use is the one you have with you at the time. I still think the movie/tv viewing and document creation on a tablet are better than on a phone. Maybe one day they'll come out with some new feature that becomes the 'killer app' for a tablet form factor. Interestingly, I see the most common use for tablets these days to be using it as a way for children to keep entertained...playing games, using educational software and watching movies. I see more young children using tablets than adults.
