What form factor?

- Smartphone
- 7" Tablet
- 10" Tablet

I'm a fan of the Google Nexus 7, very nice device which is fairly snappy from a performance perspective, good battery life. That said I really like my Google Chromebook. Now that I have LastPass installed I find myself using it a lot more than I previously did. At $249 it's a great price point. I'm not sure I'd recommend Google Pixel ($1,299), that's a lot of money for a Chromebook.

Good Luck!

I am also a fan of the Google Nexus devices. You get great products for a small price compared to
other devices with the same specs.
You get no sdcard slot at any of the Nexus devices, here you have to consider if the internal storage is enough
for you or not.

Especially the new 2013 Nexus 7 is very interesting. If the rumors are true we see in October a new Nexus 10 Tablet and a the new Nexus 5 phone loaded with Android 4.4 KitKat.

Thanks for the responses. I was thinking 7" tables mostly. The Nexus 7 looks interesting, but how does this compare to for example Motorola, Asus or Samsung brands?
