I've found that my Kindle Fire and Nook friends still use their tablets in portrait mode most of the time, and everything is just a bit too "skinny." The Nexus is 16:10 and should be better, but I haven't seen one in person yet.A 7" ipad would suite me perfectly. I just hope it's 16:9 instead of nearly square. But I don't have high hopes for a 16:9 version. But if they do come out with the ipad mini I would buy it. It would be my first ios device.
