    Honestly, if you have a word-editing program that you like and you're only going to be taking notes/web-browsing/light research, pretty much anything will do. Your primary concerns are the keyboard, battery life, and whether or not Android has the apps you want. Unless you're in a field of study where you'd need to spend a considerable amount of time drawing diagrams or equations, you really don't need the S-Pen or anything like that. If you want something that records hand-written notes, you can always sideload APK's (like the ASUS Supernote).

    I'm an undergrad working on a research paper, and I'm actually using my Nexus 7 just fine, with a keyboard case. My hands are small enough that working on a miniature keyboard doesn't bother me (I've gotten the hang of it, but I wouldn't recommend it for fast-paced lectures), and I really like the size because I literally have it with me at all times anyway. I just head to the library with my N7 and a portable book stand, and I'm set. Freshman year before tablets became mainstream, I had my old clunky 17" laptop with a weak battery life and an enormous charger. I can only imagine what you used for freshman undergrad .

    If you absolutely need the full functionality of MS Office, the Surface RT (which comes pre-loaded with it) is a worthwhile investment. But then again, you don't have the Play store's app market. If apps like Kingsoft/OfficeSuite/Evernote/Supernote/etc are totally fine for your needs, you could get something as cheap as the Tab 2 10.1" ($350 16GB w/microSD, for which you can buy this neat Logitech keyboard case). Another question is whether or not you'd need a statistical package--I haven't found any worthwhile apps for Android, and I doubt the Windows app market would have anything better; in that case you could look into tablets with a full x86 OS like Windows 7/8 (alternatively, root/install Ubuntu).

    The other question is the keyboard. Would you be fine toting around a separate bluetooth keyboard, or would you want an eloquent keyboard/case combo? Since then N10 hasn't even been released, there won't be many options readily available. Keep in mind that with slim touch keyboards (like the advertised Surface one) you'd sacrifice considerable typing efficiency.

    My word of advice is, you might end up using your tablet wayy more often than you expected, and for far more purposes than you intended. I got my N7 just for kicks as my first tablet. I meant to use it just for occasional, light note-taking--in case I didn't need to lug around my laptop--and media consumption (e-reading, Netlfix, etc). With a plethora of productivity apps, it's helped me stay organized; with a $10 navigation app, I now retired my old GPS; due to its portability, I replaced my iPod; I use it to download/read research articles; etc. So you might as well get the best device you can, if you plan on using it a long time. Good luck!

    Freshman undergrad until now I have been using pen&paper combo or every once in a while if I needed to work on a paper when I had down time between classes I brought my clunker of a HP laptop.....or was it Dell? Who knows. What kind of keyboard case do you use? If you don't mind me asking. Both of those keyboard links you posted are really nice. I definitely wouldn't mind the cheaper of the two but either one could suffice. That Logitech keyboard is pretty sexy though. I would love a setup similar to the Transformer, a faux-laptop configuration. But you are right, I have to wait and see what comes out in the coming months after the launch of the N10. I might end up getting that Logitech one in the end.

    I am also thinking about what will happen once I get my first tablet, will I just use it only for note taking/working on papers in the library, and just light media consumption? Or will it turn out similar to the way you use your N7 now. I definitely want a product that will last me at least 2 years and maybe even more.

    I'm just way too excited and I am waiting for next week to already be here!

    It's a generic 7" keyboard case, $8 on amazon. Cheap as hell but ghetto, since it doesn't hold the device well. I just removed the prongs and superglued a TPU case on (pic, review here) and it works fine. Keyboard is 8"x3"--tiny but manageable. You could do the same thing with the larger equivalent (here) but keep in mind it is bulky. I only have my tablet in there when I want to take notes.

    Just a head's up, From now until Friday (unless it sells out), Groupon has the (refurb) ASUS Transformer TF101-A1 for $270 with the dock: here, Pretty great deal, considering the keyboard alone is $100. Obviously the technology is older and it's heavier/thicker than any new tab you'd be interested in--but it's cost-effective. I'm debating whether or not I want it--so cheap! Though, I hear Groupon is shady. I suppose if I don't like it, it'd just be an extremely generous gift to my much-younger sibling :P.

    You would not regret any Asus Transformer tablet. But the style of the TF101 is nothing compared to the Prime or Tf300 and 700. I have the 101 and 201 and the 201 is what you want. My only complaint is the way the selection works in the browser. It needs to be more like the ipad in how the drop downs work. I've heard the N7 doesn't have this problem. Not sure about the 300 or 700.

    I wonder if this is a major part of the answer to note-taking needs on a 10-inch Android tablet: Exclusive: Microsoft Office for iPhone, iPad, and Android revealed | The Verge. So now the question is - what is a really good stylus to use?

    I'm pretty tempted to jump on the $270 TF101 deal. The technology's old and it does seem a little thick (thicker than my 3-year-old laptop), but I've read that it's sturdily built. My biggest concern is the screen resolution--is 1280x800 on a 10" device noticeably blurry/un-crisp to you? As far as specs go, I doubt I'd notice the difference between Tegra 2 vs. Tegra 3.

    Look like you can only view docs, and in order to get some basic editing functionality you'd need to get a 365 subscription. I dunno, I'm just skeptical because their OneNote app sucks lol. I can't blame them though, since Office software is really the only thing Windows has that other OS's blatantly lack. It's their main selling point. with Surface RT.

    The screen is actually pretty nice. The TF201 is still better but I don't think you would be upset about the quality. The size is very small and the keyboard is really nice. The sides of the tablet have a bit of an edge which can dig into your hands a bit when you are just holding the tablet.

    The big plus is the features on the keyboard itself. The extra battery is amazing, sd card, usb support and htmi out are super handy. I plug it into hotel tvs and watch movies. Transfer photos from my camera when I'm on vacation and use a mouse when I want a desktop experience.

    The only thing you may want to think about is that it doesn't look like you will be getting any more updates. ICS runs smoothly on it but jelly bean would be nice. The hardware is certainly capable of handling it.

    Now I reaally want a transformer lol, I keep hearing great things about it. Unfortunately, the Groupon deal just ran out for the tab/keyboard combo, but I found a few people on craigslist who claim they bought it new a few months back, so I'll see if the manufacturer's warranty is still valid (that's really all I care about lol). This comes at perfect timing, since Evernote keeps crashing/not saving my notes, which is driving me crazy.

    Does anything pre-JB come preloaded with flash, or would I sideload it like I did on my N7?

    I have a TF101, as mentioned the corners do tend to dig into your hand when not resting it on your lap and holding it for a long period of time. The plastic on the back is fairly slippery, so you have to grip it really hard to hold with one hand, which will tire your hand out rather quickly.

    Otherwise, it's been a terrific device to carry around and take with me on business trips, and personal vacation alike. it comes with Polaris Office, which is great for note taking (at least I think so), and I never got the keyboard dock, I've gotten by with just the on screen keyboard.

    To your comment about MS Office, I'm not excited about the capability, or the subscription based system that's been rumored. I'll probably spring for another option (probably polaris office if I can't find something better) for a productivity app.

    Im actually thinking of selling my Galaxy Note 10.1 once the N10 arrives here in the Philippines, was so excited before on buying my first tablet and since I was a fan of the Galaxy Note Phone (N7000) I didnt really listened to bad reviews about the tablet, overpriced as it is I bought it and was happy with it at first...but as usual,Im not a student or my job does not require me to draw boobies so the S-pen functionality really was not that useful to me. I like looking at HD graphics/movies and I theme a lot but the 1280x800 resolution isnt cutting it for me.Samsung bloatware just takes up space and Im not into rooting.The thing is laggy but Im hoping project butter will fix this...

    So GOOGLE Why announce the Nexus10 just months after I bought a Note 10.1?!?!?!?!

    TLR :
    Galaxy Note 10.1 is Quad-core while the N10 is dual only but the N10 has better resolution
    The 10.1 has expandable memory but Apps2sd doesnt work (samsung infrastructure)

    So should I switch to the N10 even if its just dual core, I really wanted to have a pure google experience as well

    The dual core chip in the N10 is superior to the quad core chip in your Note tablet. It is based on the new A15 chip set which is much faster. So this is a plus and not a minus.

    The Nexus 7 is too small to use regularly as a work/school device. The Nexus 10 would be ok, and the display will be incredible, but I'd really think that if you're going for school use, then you should look at a Windows 8 device. I hate to say that because I love Android, and all these Nexus devices are like having Christmas in November...but having full Office on a tablet/laptop/convertible is really hard to beat for actual productivity. And I would say that compared to any iDevice as well.

    You know what, I just remembered that MS recently announced Office for Android. So, with a bluetooth keyboard and/or keyboard dock (not sure how good Google will be at accessories on these devices), you might have a winner by 2013.

    Quick response (I'm currently living in the lab until Monday afternoon) - I would get the Windows RT/Pro tablet......but I currently have Windows Vista on my laptop (I know it sucks) and I do not plan on getting Windows 8 until this laptop finally dies on me. Oh and the cost of those tablets is ridiculous. I mainly use my laptop to just write papers, browse the web, and some light gaming (Torchlight 2 once this semester is over). I've thought about getting a Chromebook, but I don't see a purpose for them for what I need.

    My laptop works perfectly fine for me, the only thing is just it over heats a little, and is cumbersome to carry around school.

    Now that I think about it, I will probably get a desktop as my next computer with Windows 8 and just use a tablet as my laptop for now on.

    I'm looking forward to the reviews of the Nexus 10 and hopefully seeing one in person before I decided to make a purchase. If it turns out to not be awesome as I thought it would be, I think I will go for a transformer (hopefully there will be something for sale on black friday/cyber monday)

    Speaking of black friday/cyber monday, does anyone know a website that tracks all those deals?

    Well, since the reviews are in and the product is out, I guess its just time for me to wait and see. I'm really looking forward to all the accessories from 3rd party vendors outfit this tablet before I make my purchase.

    Question to the community: I went to best buy just to check out 7" and 10" tablets the other day and I was shocked when I put them in my hand (I've never used an iPad before). I get the 7" is portable, but for a guy like me who has big hands, I find them uncomfortable to hold. Has anyone else felt like this? I held a 10" tablet and I don't know but it just "felt" better in my hand. Am I crazy for thinking this?

    I really hope who ever gets the Nexus 10 allows for all of us to ask a million and one questions about it.

    I use mine to type up homework and whatnot for my A-level courses. Even though the Infinity is laggy and for some reason the JB keyboard is really dodgy (especially with backspace) I can still get my stuff done. I write it up in Drive, then log on to the computers at college to print it off.

    They've paid some more attention to the keyboard in 4.2, and the Nexus 10 shouldn't lag, so it should be fine to use it for that.

    Same here, I have the Transformer Prime TF201 with the keyboard and I love it, it's sturdy, fast , great screen, hdmi, usb, etc, etc...and a total of 96 gig of storage!

    Hmmmmm pretty sure I'm gonna get the Nexus 10.......Just can't decide should I get the 16 or 32 gig one. I dislike the fact that its $100 more just for an extra 16 gigs of space.

    Question for the community: If I get one of those OTG usb-micro usb cables and get a dedicated 16-32 gig flash drive, can I put movies or apps on there if need be? (Just incase question). Wondering if I could save a little bit of money if I do that.

    I think if you want the best specs-bang-for-your-buck (buttery-smooth, great screen resolution), go for the N10. newer transformers w/keyboard docks are a little more expensive, but the you have longer battery, full USB ports, microSD expansion, etc--I m sticking with my N7 for now, but if I ever got a 10" tab I'd want those features

    You'll never get the full MS Office experience unless you use MS Office, but you could always use an on-campus computer if you need it. Kingsoft Office is the best I've tried (layout is reminiscent of Word) and Google Drive is great with external keyboard integration (ctrl + v/z/a/s/x/b/u/i etc--this is suuper important to me, and most word processors only allow ctrl +a/v/x). Like I said, since literally any tab will allow you to run productivity apps, browse the web, play games (some req Tegra 3 though), I think you can't go wrong .

    //I use Slickdeals.net for deal alerts--they have a dedicated Black Friday section. About microUSB to USB cables--just be sure you don't get a shoddy one. I paid $3 for one on amazon and it sucks. Disconnects at the slightest movement; I use it for my keyboard case and it's just the pits--that's why I'm getting a Bluetooth keyboard. I know a lot of apps don't allow off-device storage, but I would definitely use that extra space for media like movies/tv shows.

    I really do believe that Nexus 10 will get a keyboard dock down the road, and I have no problem getting a stand for the tablet and a Bluetooth keyboard for now to use when I'm in class. The official Nexus 10 keyboard will not be as awesome as the Transformer one but it is just way to expensive for me buy a Transformer at the moment.

    The app I have right now is Office Suite Pro in my SGS3 and I am hoping I can use that on my Nexus 10 as well. I'll have to check out Kingsoft Office and I use Google Drive all the time.

    Yeah I was thinking about the question I made about the USB-Mico USB, even on my phone I still have about 4 gigs left of space on the internal sd card. I probably wont store any music on it since...... I have my phone for that. If I ever decided to buy a movie off of Google Movies can I store them on an SD card? What about books as well, if I use the Amazon app or Google Books?

    This is my dilemma, should I just wait for the 32 gigs just to make sure I have space for everything.....or just bite the bullet and get the 16 right now......

    Pretty sure Google-purchased media can be stored on external memory. If you're not going to store a lot of media on the device itself, I wouldn't make the 32GB jump--I just cannot justify $100 for that extra 16GB. Ebooks/PDFs don't take up that much space, so as long as you're diligent about removing movies when you're done, you should be fine. Maybe limit yourself to one monster-sized 2GB game at a time. You have cloud storage, too, for articles and such.

    If Google's going to repeat history--which I have a strong feeling they will--a few months down the road they'll introduce a 64GB version, and perhaps a 3G option. Don't know if they'd make 32GB the new 16GB, like they did with the 16/8GB N7's though.. But maybe they won't expand options, who knows (64GB seems excessive).
