    Hi, I would like to buy my first tablet for this use:
    - read pdf documents including colour graphics like maps and plans or pictures
    - GPS with maps
    - small and handy to put it into big pocket of small bag
    - use of cards or USB for flash

    So far I have found these 7 inch tablets:

    - Acer Iconia Tab A 100 (only 8 GB??, weak battery?)
    - Samsung Galaxy Tab GT-P1010 (possible upgrade to Android 3.2??)
    - DELL Streak 7 (possible upgrade to Android 3.2??)

    Which one would you recommend?

    I thought about Archos but it has some problems with bubbles on display.

    Thank you very much.

    I have the galaxy GT-P1000T (telstra model) and they have said no upgrade :( so mine is 2.2.

    I have navigon loaded on it for GPS, adobe and thinkfree office for PDFs and it works really well. I don't use it as a phone at all and only have wifi and bluetooth turned on when I am using them, the battery lasts me 2 days on average. The downside of the Galaxy is it has a non standard charging connection. I have found a car charger for it but they are harder to find than micro USB ones. Samsung do make a car mount which is good if you are going to use it for GPS.
