As the title, most of us have multiple devices whether it's other tabs, smartphones or PC's but what's one thing you pick your N7 up to do over any other device?

I'll start and my answer is read comics on ComiXology, I don't like reading them on my Laptop and I do use my Galaxy S2 but the N7's larger screen makes reading comics much more enjoyable. I'm reading Haunt by Kirkman, Capullo and MacFarlane at the moment, amongst other things.

Your turn...

I use it as my primary music player - except when I'm hiking or working out, then I go back to my Clip+.  I sprung for Winamp pro, so I can wirelessly sync music to the device from my desktop for times wifi is unavailable.  I have several internet feeds, Last FM, Songza, Pandora, Google Play and Plex, Orb and Skifta to access media from my PC.    I have all that on my phone as well, but I never use it, because I've been caught with a low, or dead, battery too many times when I need to make a call.

I also like the big screen.  My tired old eyes can read it!  I need to get some Bluetooth speakers now.

I guess I'd haffa say gaming.  I loath to admit this however,  because I envisioned a more serious, practical and productive use....

Although this pc has a much larger screen and speakers, I don't always feel like sitting in this room while playing a game.  Fun to even be outside sometimes, and do a little driving down the beach in my buggy or in a comfy chair, burning up the asphalt....

My phone serves two purposes now. Calls and tether. I use my Nex7 for everything else!

Just whenever I'm lounging at home or at a cafe I can be on tapatalk on the various ( including this one :-)  ) forums I'm in or simply browse the Net while listening to Pandora Radio :)

Like most of us here I'm a tech junkie  :D That being said my iPhone now makes my tablet a take anywhere device. With my Kingston Wi-Drive I have movies and music with me all the time.

Great question.  I spend a lot of time reading magazines or books while I'm listening to a podcast.
I used to be crazy until I found out that insane pays more.

Where am I?  What am I doing in this handbasket?

I can't narrow it down to ONE thing. I use it for so many things. Love reading my books on it, watching movies, playing games (some GREAT games), surfing the web, just about everything. My laptop is getting dusty.

Same here. I have an iPhone 3gs. I know, ancient. But I pretty much just use my iPhone for calls, text, and 3g tether. Nex 7 for everything else.
