Title: I'm Just Curious (or Maybe Nosy)
Post by: Tiny on March 04, 2017, 06:40:38 PM
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.

Hi Tiny,

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.
