Doing so feels weird. While I love big screens for doing the kinds of things I do, I have also values pocketability (I do have big pockets) so that my computing device is always with me. However, my wife (a subversive user of Facebook) started this mess and got me thinking. Actually, I was already thinking(usually gets me in trouble). I have been getting more and more frustrated about not being able to get my Nexus 4. There is nothing more frustrating than being sure something is what you want and not being able to get it. So I started to look at other unlocked phones, which mostly would cost $200 more to get similar specs. Then I started looking a 3rd party sellers on Amazon, the ones that Amazon will stand behind and guarantee satisfaction, and i could get the phone i want new in box, but it would be $200 more (minimum). And suddenly I said to myself, well, sheesh, for that extra $200, I could get a Nexus 7. That's when my subversive wife made the fatal mistake of saying words men across the planet are all dying to hear: "You're right." She added, to make matters worse: "Maybe a tablet is really all you need (I don't talk on the phone much). And, if not, you can always bu the Nexus 4 when it is avaiable and you won't have spent much more money." She also pointed out that I had been wanting a Kindle Paperwhite, so I would be saving that money too. So after resisting tablets all this time for their lack of pocketability, I'm seriously contemplating a tablet. I browse the internet, I work with documents, I read books, I don't use cameras and I like big screens. Maybe Drillbit or someone can run down for me the real pros and cons between an N7 and an N4. Or maybe i should just go with it. One question I have is whether there is a way to do sms on a tablet. I'm pretty sure there is. I don't so it a lot, but sometimes is the only way to get my son. Susan also wants me to join Facebook as she and my son are active users. I'm resisting the corruption. Geez, what's next. Windows 8?
