Iíve been offered an Asus Google Nexus 7 32GB for $A300. Now I know zip about these things so what I want to know first of all is do they work off a ďT StickĒ? I want to be able to use it whilst travelling in a car.

If it does that, will it run say Office of some sort?

If the answer to those is in the affirmative then Iíll take a more intelligent interest. :)

:thanks

no you can't plug a tstick into these

you'll either need to get the 3g model, or WiFi Tether that one to your cell phone if your phone supports it

Yeah it'll run an office equivalent, not one officially from Microsoft.

You can still use it whilst travelling in the car, but as mentioned, you either need a phone that you can tether with (Which in a lot of cases is cheaper / ideal), or the 3G model.

$300 Aussie is an alright price for the 32GB model, but you can still get them for USD$249 which *is* quite a bit cheaper. Heck you can get the Cellular version for USD$299 even!

Edit: It's worth mentioning that even at AUD$300 for the 32GB model, it's still *fantastic* value for money and an absolutely brilliant tablet! One which has even had "paid by Apple" fanboys converted: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nexus_7#Critical_reaction
