    7" is basically the size of 3 typical Android phones.

    You can hold it comfortably in one hand.

    It's the maximum portable size, and is a lot better than staring at a 3-4" screen for reading, but I'd prefer it to be a little bigger.

    Honestly I thought it was a little too small when it shipped, but Android has limited support for larger resolutions, so I wouldn't push it.

    Basically 480p is DVD quality. And you have it on a 7" screen. For videos it isn't bad.

    Videos, as long as they are 16:9 or so, is perfect.

    Here's an idea:

    7" doesn't really fit in your pocket though. You'd have to go to a bag of some sort. Here's where the build quality of typical generic tablets fail - they are really fragile without an external case.

    I really wish they made more 5" tablets, but I'm told that battery life will be a concern because they have trouble fitting a good sized battery inside a smaller form factor.
