No but i have its smaller brother the galaxy tab plus 7 (the only difference between the 2 is the screen size/slight extra weight, superamoled on the 7.7 and better battery on the 7.7) and its a joy to use!

It doesnt feel too heavy, battery i have no complaints and i love honeycomb 3.2 on it

A great investment!

they are a little expensive yet!!! the replacement for the 10.1 seems to be coming at mwc not sure if I will wait for it yet. I like the 7 inch form factor but with phones at 4+ inches now I dont know if theres that much of a differnce. Other than this the main selling point for this excluding its size would be the display which the 10.1 will supposedly match so still undecided

I also cant help thinking there will be a nexus tab in the next year.....

Would you not prefer a bigger, better tablet, though? A Galaxy Note (or something that size) would just piss me off with the size of it in my (trouser) pocket. Not to mention the deep shade of purple my face would probly go makin a phonecall on it. I think a 6-8 inch tablet that fits nicely in an inside jacket pocket is the way to go

Apparently there's talk of a 11.6" quad core. Not sure if that's a form-factor I'd be interested on tbh.

Yep its an amazing screen allright and the reviews of the battery life are really good but i opted for the Galaxy tab plus 7 because of the fact that it fits ij your jeans pocket!
