Default Any reason for a iPad and a Android Tablet?

I have a iPad 3 which i like and will keep, i switched from my iPhone 5 to a note 2.

Seems to be some decent prices on the Galaxy tab 2's and Nexus 7's. Any reason to have both you think, (love tech stuff so of course i can justify it to myself always hah). Or just a waste of money at this point?

Play with the note for awhile, that will give you a taste.

I would try out a nexus 7. I would stay far away from a Galaxy Tab 7". I had one myself and it was not a pleasant experience.

As for needing both an android tablet and an iPad, well, nobody can answer that but you. We are all tech geeks here so we aren't going to judge you for having both!

For once I agree with cheesy. Stay away for the tab 2. If I didn't get my tab 2 7" free I would never ever have bought it. It is the slowest pos and the screen is horrible.

Cool thanks for the info was not sure on it, overall most people think the nexus 7 is pretty good though right? I am just convincing myself that having a 5.5" phone, 7" nexus 7, and a 10" ipad just gives me the best of all worlds lmao.

If the nexus 7 had an sd slot it would be near awesome.

I want a Nexus 10 pretty badly. Not bad enough to bite yet...

I don't have an iPad, though.

Really depends. If you plan on storing a lot of music or videos on it, then you might as well. Otherwise it's probably just better to go with the cheaper model.

Meh, I'd personally stay away from any 7" tablet right now. The currently have the lowest resolution of any display simply because they have to meet a price point.

I'd wait until we see 7" 1080p tablets with 2013 SoCs stuffed inside. Then you're money would be well spent. Wait and see what Google throws out at I/O in May.
