Remember the #icepocalypse that hit Dallas a couple weeks ago? Well the night of the big storm, Google invited me to a Dallas Drybar event promoting their new tablet, the Nexus 7. As you may have guessed, I wasn’t able to attend due to the weather (and the fact that I had to drive to Austin for an event that was happening the next day). I was super bummed I was missing a chance to party with Google – wouldn’t you be too? Well to my pleasant surprise, Google sent me the Nexus 7 anyway as a holiday gift. Pinch. Me. Now. I have never owned a tablet and have always been attached at the hip to my laptop for the sake of this blog, but I’ve lately felt behind the times with my sometimes bulky, always heavy computer. While I know I’ll always travel with my laptop for longer trips, now I can attend meetings knowing I’ll have a fast and easy way to show off my blog. The Nexus 7 fits in my smallest bags and is super lightweight – no more backaches from dragging my laptop case everywhere. Hallelujah!
Anyway, the whole point of this post is that the Google Nexus 7 is really the ideal holiday gift. It’s perfect for anyone at any age and has all the capabilities you could ask for. I can read all of my books, watch my favorite TV shows on the Netflix app, work on my blog with the WordPress app, post to Instagram, etc. You name it, the Nexus 7 does it. The best part about this tablet? Starting at only $229, it’s the most budget-friendly tablet out there. There’s still time to buy it and get it before Christmas, so click here to buy one for yourself or as a last minute holiday gift for someone you love!
