Time for me to upgrade my blackberry and HP mini which rarely leaves the connected screen at my home office these days because i feel stupid carrying a wall plug with all these ipad users populating town. I'm seriously considering the Tab 2 7 but concerned that it fit my needs. I'm not into game playing, watching movies or taking a bunch of pictures-- what I really want is something that enables fast web browsing, allows me to create documents with word and excel as well as do merchant services using the square or similar devices. i have a kindle so i don't need that. the messaging where you see people live onscreen sounds awesome-- does it have that? it seems all the tablets come with so much "stuff". i have a service business and like having a virtual office. For $250 the Tab 2 7 seems right-- what'd'think? i'm thinking of getting a phone that pairs with it. thanks so much for sharing your thoughts!
