13-Dec-12 Google to your hearts content!

A number of folk have asked me of late what I think of my Google Nexus 7″ tablet that I’ve now had for a few months and specifically using an Android platform.


I have to say that I have been very impressed. Especially as I had become very familiar with using my Apple iPad and I thought it might be a bit of a tough transition.

Without being a marketing ad for Google, I thought I would highlight two built in features that make Android and specifically the Nexus stand out from the Apple range (at the moment).

The Swype keyboard for Android replaces pecking at letters with gliding your fingers over them. Swype automatically interprets your gesture and figures out the word you meant to type.


Although I think a great gesture, I will add the caveat that my daughter gave up on this feature, as she could still type faster using the more traditional entry method!

The second stand out benefit for me is the sharing feature.

When you are looking at content in Android, a web page, a blog post, a picture, a video, a venue in foursquare, a tweet, etc, etc, you simply hit the share button and all the apps that are installed on the phone that can take an object like that show up.


Great for easily posting your blog or interesting tweet to multiple places!

My seasonal tip. The Google Nexus 7″ is going for £159 at the moment. A nice addition to the Christmas list!
