The Nexxus 7 looks like a nice little tablet for the price. I think I'm getting one too for the road.

I haven't found a flying field that requires bigger tail wheels on any size of airframe. I don't even put a ski on the tail wheel when flying from snow. The tail is so light that the tail wheel just gets pulled over anything and everything. I think it would just be added weight.

It only has Honeycomb while I think the newer ones come with Jellybean.
Still looking at it

Cons:
refurbished, dual core tegra 2 processor, old android

Pros:
HDMI, USB, Micro USB, price, memory card slot expandable to 64GB, 10" diagonal, front and rear cameras

Google Nexxus 7
Pros:
Quad Core Tegra 3 processor, new android, new not refurbished, price

Cons:
7" diagonal screen, only 16GB, not expandable, only micro usb no HDMI no SD card no full USB, only front camera no rear camera

I do not see the clear choice...

I love my 7inch tablet (samsung galaxy tab 7.0 plus) its easy to carry around with you. I want the asus 370t. It's a lot like the nexus 7 but has a 8MP camera on the back.

I have prop strikes all the time. I don't want to hear how I need to learn how to land. There are weeds every where and unless I cut the grass every 3 days I have nose overs some times and my tail wheels gets caught on stuff sometimes.

I had 3" wheels on my 42" and they worked out really well, they stopped the nose overs, but one of the 3" wheels broke somehow so I had to order more.

cut yourself a landing strip, drop the mower deck height real low and cut a nice strip in the grass for yourself....shouldnt take but 15 minutes or so.

version of android shouldnt matter, you can root the tablet and install whatever version you want.

Personally a 7" tablet is useless to me having a Galaxy S2 cell phone...i bought my g/f an ASUS TF101 for christmas and it is great, the 10" screen makes it worthwhile to use for apps and readers that dont make sense on a cell phone and transportation is still great.
