    Ok I am after a tablet for work, to read books, watch films, tv shows, play games and a bit of Internet surfing. Been looking at all if these but I'm confused by the Samsung Tab's. I have snagged a tab 2 7.0 8gb 3G for a good price, it runs Android 4.0, yet I have just seen the 7.7 which to me has far better specs but it will cost me about £70 than the 7.0, I do notice the 7.7 runs honeycomb, is there a update to a newer system available?
    Also not coun ting out the Nexus 7 as well which I know all about, should I keep my 7.0 or exchange for the 7.7 or just get the Nexus?
    Is the 7.0 older or newer than the 7.0 also?
    The 7.0 model number is GT-P3100
    The 7.7 model would be the Gt-P6810

    The p3100 has 3g, the p6810 is the wifi version only. The 6810 runs 4.0.4 ICS and is better in every way internally. But it's up to you whether it's worth £70.

    It all depends on how much you picked up this tablet. Less than £170? keep it. About £200? Get the nexus 7 if you dont use the 3g capabilities. Want a premium made device and willing to pay the money? Get the 7.7 3g version.

    Paid £150 for the 8gb 3G it's going back and bought the 7.7 wifi version, keeping that instead.

    Wow, that is a steal at that price!

    I had a look and prices have increased. :(

    You want to sell it to me?
