    Hello all,

    I've been looking to buy a 7" tablet for college but am unsure of which one works best at good price ($100-$300, can go up a bit if it's something great). I don't mind tinkering so its fine if I need to work a bit to get the tablet up to stuff.

    I'll be using the tablet to take notes, surf the web or play games if class is boring, and skype/google chat.

    The Galaxy Tab and HTC Flyer looks nice, but the Nook Color has a better screen and the Flyer is too expensive for what it is. The Iconia A100 looks great but the reviews knock down the screen and the battery life.

    Would like:
    1024 X 600 screen
    Capacitive touch screen
    Good processor and graphics (can play 3D games well)
    Good battery life (6+ hours)
    Bluetooth
    MicroSD slot

    If possible:
    GPS
    Cameras

    The Nook seems to fit well, but it lacks a mic.

    Thank you for your time (1st post!).

    Hi Gunner, welcome to the forum. I'm glad you joined us here. Obviously, I'd vote for the Nook but if the mic is a show stopper I guess that's out.:rolleyes:

    I could use a bluetooth headset with the Nook.

    I'm also going to use the tablet for remote access and note taking, would a 10" be better for me?

    Also, anyone have input on the A100? How's the screen and battery life for day to day use. Reviews don't always reflect real world use.

    Edit: OOps, somehow missed the stickies thread about this stuff. Thanks for the reply Spider. Ended up getting an Acer A100
