Combined with the overall lightness of the device, it makes it very comfortable to hold with either one or both hands, and you could happily use it for hours without it becoming uncomfortable.

The microSD card slot should fare well with those who seek additional storage, while its snappy performance makes it a great little unit for anyone looking to pick up a good sidekick device that won't break the bank.

Reviews Word on the street

Nexus 7  vs MeMO Pad HD 7 

Most notably, they’re expanding into the multimedia content community, where they’re focusing on providing television shows, movies, books, magazines, music, games, and apps courtesy of Google Play.
Nexus 7

It also has 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi support, Bluetooth, a gyroscope, an accelerometer, GPS, and support for Google's NFC-based technology, Android Beam.
Nexus 7

It's still not as good as it could be; as ever with the Nexus line there's no microSD card slot, the screen, while generally strong, could do with richer colours and for games Android just can't compete with Apple, but for most users these will be irrelevant concerns, particularly given the price tag.
